Called them, at 74 cent a minute to find out that, yes they are having
problems in the 041 and 046 areas. The person asked me what O/S I use, Linux
and if I was using Outlook to fetch my mails???
He also wanted to know if I could log on while on the phone so he could find
out what IP address I received? Seems to me, since this is established with
each connection, I can not see what use it could be?
He says it should be fixed in a few hours? Still giving problems though.

Someone asked how I could fetch mails after checking them on the web site.
Since the web site only fetches the first 20 messages, and I usually get 35 -
50 a day, I let it fetch the first 20 and sometimes kmail can get the rest.
I tried telnetting to port 110 and I can see the messages, but can not fetch
them this way either.
