Spam from Paradise.net

    The Paradise.net email system is known to be susceptible to overloading,
    as evidenced by the widely reported problems over the Christmas/New Year
    period. After this disruption the customers received an apology with the
    explanation that there was an unexpected major increase in email traffic
    - mostly spam - and the promise that the situation will be monitored
    closely.

    Last November the TelstraClear/Paradise.net terms and conditions were
    changed to include a clause that allows the ISP to inform its customers
    'about services offered by our carefully selected business partners',
    backed up with the threat that the agreement can be cancelled
    immediately if the customer requests the ISP to stop supplying this
    information.

    Given that 'the paradise.net team' are now confident enough to test the
    system by spamming their customers, I think we can all take comfort in
    the knowledge that the email systems must have been substantially
    upgraded and the potential overloading problem is no longer an issue.

    I wonder how long an email is stored on the server.
