Dear Member,

Our record shows that your CompuServe Mailbox is outdated due to our system upgrade to Oath Mail which has caused some incoming mail to be placed on hold.

As a precautionary measure, we will restrict access to your Mailbox from 28th June 2019 until you upgrade your Mailbox. To prevent abuse, sending out emails from 28th June 2019 will not be possible as long as access to the Mailbox is limited.

Kindly update your Mailbox in order to receive new mails.

UPDATE MAILBOX

This could take less than a minute to complete the process.

Include valid details and wait for a response from the Customer Support Team.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Regards,

CompuServe© Support Team
