On 22 Jun 2004 22:33:35 -0400, firstname.lastname@example.org (DoN. Nichols) vaguely proposed a theory ......and in reply I say!:
remove ns from my header address to reply via email
I had a fax AND email from them
Their web site host has been under fire from hackers, they are saying, and has been down a lot lately.
They have reported the Australian disconneection to their ISP.
So we shall see..
Funny I just sent them an email via my ISP's online email site, and it has not bounced.
This _could_ be why my ISP's online stuff may be getting through. It probably has a completely different address.
These guys are "backboned" by another company, with whom I have had many discussions (you were involved in that thread too, IIRC) about spam and hits on my firewall, so far without much success.
I reckon the "culprit" here is that every time I log on I get a different IP..no? Therefore I can "inherit" some other scumbag's dirty laundry.
Fax has worked, as I said. Phone would soon run up any savings in chain, and there is the time difference.
Hehe! I hope only good ears are reading this stuff!
Anyway. I live and learn. Thanks for all your interest.
