Has telecom email recently (within the last hour) stopped working? 

I am trying to get into my steam account after moving to a new drive -- and steam send me an email to my xtra address and it is not working at all. 

I tried sending email to my xtra address from gmail too, and that is also not receiving (Using the yahooxtra  webmail interface). 

Most frustrating, i didn't think I had any xtra email addresses registered anywhere. 



[edit] it is not going to spam/junk folder either.

Phoned telecom , got through to 2nd level support.

The guy I spoke to has 3 others on the same email server with the same problem, so he thinks one of the servers is playing up.

So, they are at least investigating the issue.

Yes, it is fixed now.

And, now I've managed to change the email associated with my steam account.

Xtra email is too much of a liability and I only keep it around in case old friends try to contact me.
