- Hi Martin,
Seeing as you're about to switch to cable I can recommend Blueyonder. It's
quite reliable; the only thing it won't do is give you a static IP address,
though I think you'll be hard-pressed to find a provider who does (they are
very reluctrant to give you a static IP address in order to stop you from
running your own server). There are ways around that, though, depending on
what you want the static IP address for.
One thing to watch out for is BT, though I don't think they do cable (only
DSL). A friend of mine got a BT ADSL line and is having all sorts of
problems with the e-mail - BT won't let him use their outgoing mailserver
with any e-mail address other than his BT one, and I see you're using your
own domain-name for e-mails so you wouldn't be able to do that. As I say,
though, I don't think BT does cable, just DSL.
