DonGould:mjb: Don, I suggest you check who you're replying to with more care. edge is not the OP, and your reply is exceptionally rude.
ya sorry... I really should have put some ""'s around that "You", because it's not edge's fault at all.
What I really meant was that I think we have to come to a point where users of the Xtra service really just have to accept that their mail provider is problematic and they really need to just take the endless advice of others to find a better provider.
edge I do apologize if you found my comment offensive, it was not intended that way.
Many have found the xtra mail system to be frustrating, I know I've wasted time on that one in the past.
Lets just say I'm well into my 50's and have long learnt to take the most positive view of any comment as the default position! Certainly no offence taken and the delay in responding has been due to hours spent helping wife with calving cows and lambings ewes in some inclement weather - not me stewing over any comments!. I understand the point and, at the risk of incurring MF's wrath for one last OT comment, I've been with xtra since 1996 and generally have very few complaints at all about service over 16 years (I claim I have reasonable expectations!! ). Both wife and I also have gmail (and other) accounts, so have backups, but always interested as to why these events seem to randomly randomly occur!
