Amstrad has flatly denied allegations in The Mail on Sunday that its E-M@iler is experiencing technical difficulties and that the company has been having supply problems.

Alan Sugar's company issued a statement this morning in which it claims that deliveries and sales were "going well" with increased supply volumes "scheduled for delivery for national retail distribution from 1st September."

The company took the opportunity to mention that revenues from the emails - a snip at 12 pence a time plus a 12 pence cover charge per session- were "pleasingly" in line with expectations.

The story in The Mail on Sunday said that Amstrad had refused to discuss shortages of the E-M@iler. However, a spokesman for the company said that there was no shortage and the issue of any technical problems had not arisen in his conversation with the MoS reporter. ®
