BT has blamed a "large spam attack" over the weekend for delays to its email service.According to a recorded customer info message this morning: "BT Yahoo! customers may be experiencing a delay in receiving email."

Asked to elaborate, a BT spokesman explained that the telco had suffered a "large spam attack over the weekend which resulted in one per cent of emails being delayed". He insisted that not all BT Yahoo! punters have been hit by the problem before adding that the company was currently working to deliver the backlog of emails. This should be completed by the end of the day. ®
