weird....i've been getting mine in order....dsl link via telstra...
the only thing i noticed was when ntt's au pop3 server was under trouble
but i believe that had something to do with them using netapp filers for
mailboxes and it died.

~The time problem on my email was my end, but I have also been

~hour).  I've

~perhaps someone should bring it up with Tim Potter.
