I have not received a second email in relation to this order, and have not received confirmation of dispatchment.

My contact number is xxxxxxxxx, or xxxxxxxx.
ThanksEMAIL NUMBER 3:
I placed the order below yesterday lunchtime, and chose the "next day delivery" option. This order comes to approximately £xxx, and contains all of my Christmas presents for friends and family.
On ringing your customer support services today, and holding the line for a full 12 minutes before being answered, I was told that this order has not been received, and therefore will not be delivered. Further, I was told that there is absolutely no record of my order - despite the acknowledgement I received below.
Can you please reassure me that if I replace the order this evening, it will still be delivered on Thursday? Obviously if I can't rely on this service I will have to go elsewhere to get my Christmas presents.
I am very upset by this loss of order, as I have used your service regularly in the past without any problems. I appreciate that Christmas is a busy period for you, but it is obviously very distressing when orders are lost.
I look forward to hearing further from you.
For your information, my postcode is xxxxxx.EMAIL NUMBER 4:
I refer to the order below, which is order number xxxxx.
This order was placed on 18 December 2006 at 13.15. I ordered the next day delivery service, however, my delivery did not arrive.
Despite speaking to your customer services yesterday, and sending you two emails already in relation to this order, I have still not received a full response as to what has happened to this order.
Could you please respond to my urgent enquiry as soon as possible.
Thanks,EMAIL NUMBER 5:

Customer No.: xxxxxxxx
Order No.: xxxxxxxxxx
I attach to this email three previous emails that I have sent to your company, all of which have remained unanswered, and the one email I received today.
I am utterly appalled as to the service I have received from you.
In brief: I placed this order on Tuesday for next day delivery.
On Wednesday I called to track my order, and was told that my order did not exist. I was advised to re-order everything.
On Wednesday evening, I bought different presents for my friends and family.
Today, I am now told that my original order has been dispatched.
On contacting your customer services, my partner was told that the order "might" be delivered tomorrow, however, this could not be guaranteed. I have been informed that if it does not come tomorrow, it won't arrive until "after Christmas".
Obviously, when I paid for the next day delivery, I expected my order to arrive on Wednesday, and not "after Christmas". If the orders arrive "after Christmas" they are entirely useless to me, as they are Christmas presents.
Could somebody please contact me as soon as possible in order to let me know what exactly is happening with this order. I am very distressed by what has happened with this order, and the fact that it now appears I will be charged for presents that I no longer desire, and also charged for the next day delivery service, when my items will in fact not even be delivered within the next week.
I look forward to speaking to someone.
