ahh...now you've got the wheels spinning upstairs - but perhaps I can
setup my own Mail Server eventually (IMAP). I really am trying to learn
more and more about all the networking, firewalling, interfacing
issues, MUA/MTA, etc (iptables, shorewall, etc ,etc ad-nauseum) - but
as you say, for $12/month - not too shabby for some peace and
tranquility, without the hassle.



Do You Yahoo!?
Tired of spam?  Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around
