as the title says - i still have a @ihug.co.nz email address and was using pop.ihug.co.nz to retrieve my emails - stopped working today so I tried to telnet to it on port 110 and no answer - nothing on Vodafone site so checked pop.vodafone.co.nz and there were my emails!

Maybe i missed some notification from Vodafone ...???

cheers

martin

Interesting you should mention that. Visiting that IP results in the comment that the website was "blocked by OpenDNS in response to the Conficker virus, the Microsoft IE zero-day vulnerability, an equally serious vulnerability, or some other threat".
