I think I already dealt with it.
I cancelled spam filtering. It was only stopping < 20% of spam (estimata) and
more than once intercepted a much-wanted message. So I figure I am better off
without it. Therefore I never need to use their webmail, unless they withdraw
POP support. We will see if they do...
Cheers ... Duncan.
