I've found that, if it drops and then reconnects, it takes some hours before IPv6 is visible again.

When I test my IPv6 connection, I get a good score but told there's a bit of room for improvement:

1) Your router or firewall is filtering ICMPv6 messages sent to your computer. An IPv6 host that cannot receive ICMP messages may encounter problems like some web pages loading partially or not at all.

2) There is no reverse DNS record to associate your IPv6 address with a host name. Reverse DNS records are required by some Internet protocols and are usually managed at the ISP level.

Re no. 1, I haven't enabled the firewall or IPv6 firewall on my router, so am a bit puzzled.  Re no. 2, is that something that would be set automatically if IDNet provides it?

I have it set up so that no-one in my address book should be classed as spam. Will that do?

Thanks, the modem is plugged direct into the master socket (with an exterior wall between!)and the only sources of noise, utility room at other end of house and kitchen other side of the wall at other end side of exterior wall, TV etc.  and phone behind a block wall and near other end  of house. I went through all this in my last house when we were told it was a problem on our side. It turned out there was a very old and in need or replacement mains BT cabling that was the problem. My son who is an electronics engineer/programmer went through with me what to do. But the main point is until the power problem my SNR was 5 and had been for well over 18months with a resulting higher but unused download speed. An Openreach engineer found no problems here when he came (and as usual had a good look round to see if the buck could be passed onto my setup(and fitted a new master socket in place of the old unfiltered one)). The problem is as I understand it once the SNR does down it can be difficult to get it moved back up (as it doesn’t usually do so on its own very often) and that is looking to be the problem now with Idnet support putting the SNR down to the sync speed rather than the other way round.

Have you tried adding them to your whitelist filter in your IDNet email settings?  Not sure if it will help, but might be worth a try.

Except other people get them. So, it probably is best if they ask VM?

If you have a portable medium wave (AM) radio and can tune it between stations at a frequency somewhere around 650kHz, walk around your house and look for things that make it buzz. Things that do that are usually a source of interference to your DSL connection, especially if they're close to the phone wiring or the modem itself.

It's likely the sender's mail server has got blacklisted.
