....or get yourself an email account which is not dependent on your ISP.
I have my own domain name hosted in Arizona (GoDaddy.com), and it works
with all ISP's I had over the years.
Now, switching to another ISP entirely is another option. Sympatico is
known to be more expensive than many others, I use CIA.COM (3web.com)
and I'm rather happy with them. No download/upload cap, a static IP is
available, and no fuss, it works just fine. I may not have the 5 MBPS
that Bell wants to promise me, but thisis likely related to the distance
with the POS than the actual service.
One thing to do is to test your performance using speedtest.com. Of
course, you won't know the difference until you switch, but for $10 less
per month, it's worth it any time.

Just had an automated phone message from Bell
They are switching mail servers (January 4) the new servers are pophm
smtphm (hm for Hotmail)
I tried to get the needed info from the Outlook and Mac instructions
but it keeps failing on password.
I looked into it a bit more and it looks like it is wanting a windows
Does anyone have a work around, or is it time to find a new ISP?
