    Recently whilst on holiday I tried to retrieve my email using a friends IPAD. After entering my Tiscali email address and password on the login screen an "Update your account" details page is displayed. If the option to "Skip" is selected the page is then frozen and the login process cannot be continued.
    On my return home I tried the login procedure on my Windows based PC and it works perfectly. I have been able to use this Ipad in the past to retrieve email so it seem strange that I can't any longer. Something has changed - perhaps ios6
    I've contacted TalkTalk and they have said I need to set up an account on the IPAD which seems a strange thing to do on another persons machine. Presumably the account would need to be deleted after email had been downloaded. - not very user friendly

    Any help appreciated.

    I have found an answer to this problem. It would seem the Safari browser is at fault. Downloaded Chrome and email now works perfectly. No doubt Apple will fix eventually.

    I've never personally found this to be an issue, but i'm glad you've managed to sort out an alternative solution.
