      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>       

Fabia VRS battery charging

The other morning my VRS battery would not turn the engine sufficiently to start. After bump starting and running the car it will now start OK but sometimes sounds sluggish so I think the battery is on the way out. Car is nearly 5yrs old.
Until I can get back home (currently in Spain) I want to be able to trickle charge the battery to keep it topped up. Can't access the battery easily because of the covers so would it be OK to trickle charge via the cigar lighter socket? I have a suitable connector to do this.

Its only a matter of lifting the plastic cover over the + (red) lead and connect the croc clips (not hard really)
