I need an E3 emailer, it's your fault Chinny !
« on: 23:24, 27 February 19 »
Due to the video about the Emailer plus by ChinnyVision, I got interested in this device, more exactly in the 3rd model the E3 (colour screen) which has received an update to not use any more the premium call number and can be used as a normal phone.


I found a brand new E3 on ebay, but as it seems not having be used, it wont have the needed update (http://www.amstrad.com/emailer_faq/e3_uk/index.html

The documentation is at http://www.amstrad.com/emailer_faq/user_guides/index.html but the links are dead, does someone have them ?


Does someone have a E3 with the update and could sell it to me ?


I found an interesting link, it uses linux : https://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=109663924326753


Even a dead E3 would be a nice case for a raspberry pi !


By the way Chinny, if you can find an E3, what about a new video ?


Oh, just thinking right now, if you didnt get rid yet of the emailer plus, I can buy it from you for a pi case, but please sign it before !

I got one now and it not a update but a configuration change that why it don't work on a deactivated e-mailer,I have the plus version like yours and a E3 as well but its deactivated. What ever you do don't reset your E-mailer to factory defaults Because it will deactivate the E-Mailer. Sky should of released a update not just change the software inside the e-mailer. I found a way to make a call on my Amstrad E3 E-mailer,it don't work on a Plus E-mailer deactivated. 1 Pick up handset 2. Press and hold Email button down until it says dialling for email then it will cancel it and take 20 seconds to cancel Emall call and the phone will activate and you will get a dial tone then you can dial your number you want...very weird Amstrad missed this.The software on the E3 is V2.


Perhaps this group has goo infos too : https://www.facebook.com/groups/AMSEmailer/

I will be at London 14-17th August, any place I could have some luck to find an emailer or any other Amstrad CPC hardware ? And if this place has something interesting near to be visited then WAF wont go down too badly (I hope, I really hope...).


Otherwise I will try a seller of an emailer who lives in London to collect it when I am there.

Sorry only just seen this.


I was offered an E3 and turned it down. I only got the original Emailer in as it was *really* cheap and it looked interesting. But the problem is the device is effectively a brick unless it was unlocked by the original user when Amstrad closed the service down. If the device doesn't work, for me, it's not very interesting.


Also I don't want to receive another pair of underpants!
