These ISP's are starting to piss me off, personally.
Tom Sanders writes in vnunet.com:
Broadband internet provider Comcast has temporarily prevented its subscribers from sending emails to Hotmail and MSN accounts.
For a period of three days, users trying to send messages addressed at the Microsoft owned internet services received an error message. The return email stated that: "The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server".
A spokesperson for Comcast did not return several requests seeking further information. Comcast operates as a US cable TV provider. Its broadband internet business has 7.7 million subscribers.
The email outage lasted from 18 until 20 October, according to postings by a support agent for the US service on a members-only user forum.
