(Did you email me directly as well?)

I haven't touched mine for ages, but... you get that message when the
emailer's unable to call home to download adverts. I *thought* they'd
disabled that requirement last year. Has your emailer been in storage
for a long time? If so it may not have downloaded the update, and if
Amstrad's servers aren't running any more you may be out of luck.

Just to check: it is plugged into a telephone line, right?
