    Are the problems xtra had last night anywhere near being fixed? I don't want
    to have to keep phoning them.

    It's a pity they can't authenticate via user name and password for
    their news servers, would make my life a little bit easier.

    it would have cost them more to block the service than to just let the
    network allow all access.

    er... it would be a hell of a lot easier (and this has been discussed in
    another thread recently) to have a list of ip blocks allowed, and any other
    denied, rather than implement an authentication on their server
    (which is twister IIRC)
    Not only that but a savings on traffic they would be paying for
    (ie on other Peoples Networks)

    No we aren't all getting this spam. Your email address in your headers is
    not real is it?
    I have had an account with xtra for 12 months, never had any spam.
