hey all. Anyone else having probelms with orcon mail. I got one of
those life time free email accounts some time ago and just in the last
week or two, well, today I got 47 emails. In a 14 hour period.
something wrong with their spam filters ? Or did I get sloppy with my
email address?.

Haven't heard why.
