British Net users are being forced to adopt European Net practices - and all in the name of uniformity.

Vizzavi users who have an unorthodox email address will be left to rot following the launch of a new platform next week.

Those users who don't have a name.name@vizzavi.whatever moniker have until Monday 18 December to change it.

"We need to have a uniform email address," she said.

Vizzavi is a joint venture between the Vivendi and Vodafone providing a multi-access European portal. ®
