    lost e-mails

    Glad to see it worked. No more compacting messages EVER. You can probably stop it from prompting you, just google it to find out how, otherwise ignore it. For future reference if you regulary copy the inbox.dbx file to CD or USB stick etc then you will always have a backup of you email...

    Hi Willy, your not stating the obvious to me i wasnt aware I needed to do this :eek: . By just using 20% plus costs from my PPOR doesnt give me a split loan. How do I achieve this, PPOR is with one bank and IP will be with another. Might be easier just finance the whole lot with one bank...
