On bitching about iiNet, I thought my mail access had been a little sporadic of late,
after I recieved 400 E-mails dating back from 20th August, yesterday, that have been sitting
in a queue somewhere for a couple of months, it confirmed my theory.
Same goes when my virtual domain mail settings "got changed" and I lost all E-mail access
for about a day. 'till I made 3 calls to tech support, and the last bloke who fixed it
told me "Well you must keep your password more secure, because someone changed your settings"
Like hell, I'm the only one who knows it, and I sure did not do it..
Sorry for the rant, but I'm fed up to the gills with iiNet. The quicker I get out, the better..

ps, the OTHER ISP I use has no such problems, and is growing into the well supported, reliable
entity that omen was before they were destroyed..
