Please tell me how many perfect providers are out there? I just had to send an
urgent mail but the relay of my provider did not deliver it but also did not
tell me. 2 months later I got the "delivery failed" message. Nice.
After that I sent out every mail directly to the recipient, but I was rejected
because of this silly RBL thing every so often. So I reactivated the relay.
Currently if I have a really urgent mail I use several of my accounts
to send a few copies at once. That's plain sick - I really need to get a
better provider :(( Even the university is not reliable at this :(
