    Spammers have knocked out the e-mail service for many of the customers of internet service provider (ISP) Tiscali, the firm has said.
    Users e-mails have not been delivered to their intended recipients as other ISPs block e-mail traffic from Tiscali.

    Tiscali has not said how many of its 1.8m UK customers are affected by the outage which started eight days ago.

    It said engineers were "taking urgent action" to block spammers using its e-mail service to send messages.

    A statement on the Tiscali website read: "We have been targeted by spammers using our service, which in turn has meant other ISPs have taken measures to block mail sent by Tiscali. This is not affecting all delivery addresses. Some mail continues to be delivered as normal."

    The ISP said it was currently installing new hardware and updating its spam filters.

    Not really, I don't expect Tiscali to do anything involving actually looking after their users.
