Having a problem logging on to Sympatico Internet or your Sympatico email?
When logging on (authenticating) to any Sympatico service, your user ID (looks similar to b1xxx99) and your Password always have to be typed in lowercase (no capital letters). Sometimes your keyboard's "Caps Lock" key may be enabled without you noticing. To make sure Caps Lock is disabled, look at your keyboard lights. Generally there are 3: One that says "Num Lock", one that says "Caps Lock" and one that says "Scroll Lock". Make sure the "Caps Lock" light is OFF. If it's ON simply press your "Caps Lock" key and the light should turn off. You can now enter your User ID and Password in lowercase.
