We were discussing it in the office today,
Is it time for telecom to bring its email services back in-house rather than outsourcing it?

There have been ongoing issues with yahoo mail for a number of years - not just for telecom customers.
I am not an expert on hacking (dyslexics dont make good programmers) but as I understand, the vunerability in the yahoo webmail service has been around for a number of months, and it appears yahoo hadnt fixed the issue on webmail.xtra.co.nz

Among other things - random / arbitrary disabled pop3 access, mailbox / account migration restrictions, etc

Personally I think it might be time to go back in-house, or at least give a flirtatious wink to the gmail wholesale sales people, or perhaps go as far as showing them some leg too.

What do you guys think?

I reckon ISPs need to say "find your own email because we don't offer it". Let the ISP provide connectivity. Let the customer source their own email from the many options available. ISP email is the devil, whether outsourced or not.

Awesome

Yahoo is such a horrible system to use anyway. They should just run it in house, it would be a much nicer experience for customers.
