The reason we suggest this as a troubleshooting step is that it can often clear out some old saved data that could be causing any issues.
The simplest solution is to close your browser and then just open a fresh incognito/private browsing window. There is no need to clear cache/data/cookies in this scenario.
I've received reconfirmation that the fault of customers overseas not being able to access their Webmail is fixed.
For ColinHarry (Happy Belated birthday!) and the one or two others who are still experiencing problems since, please either send Optus technical support a message through the My Optus App or a Private Message to Optus on Facebook or a Direct Message on Twitter advising you still have a Webmail issue, confirming you are not overseas or using a VPN. A separate ticket for your individual case may be logged as the original is closed. Reference fault ticket 23170077 if needed.
YetAnotherAcc (and everyone): Captcha will be disabled when the team has completed its current review of Webmail.
And as I neither have an internet connected 'phone..and I do not belong or ever intend to belong to Twitter or Facebook..how do I log a complaint?
But I'm so bloody glad that this has been fixed for "overseas" subscribers!! I'm well over the moon with joy about that.
OK. Did it as asked. Used the optus app
Few minutes ago
I asked if the captcha code could be removed from my OptusWebmail login.
Spoke/wrote this to "Etta" and was told this:
"Colin, I regret to inform you that "Captcha code" it set globally to know it the account holder is a human or robot.
Unfortunately, we don't have option to remove "Captcha code" from our end.
If I had that option I would have done that till now.
I help you understand my situation here."
So there we be. Possibly never to be fixed? Any more news??
