      If you offer anything at all to people operating servers you're doing
      better than most of the big players I have to deal with. BT especially -
      all you can get out of their trained monkey types is reading from a
      script on how to set up Outlook and no deviations. (Yes I know BT runs
      it's call centre from India these days, and I have no beef with the
      people or their accents, it's the lack of training and inability to
      refer the problem to those who are better trained that gripes me).

      Due to excessive spam as a result of archiving of this list I only
      accept mail through the list server.
