    Default Problems in NZ

    Since Christmas weekend, my ISP (Paradise) has been jammed, they are processing some 250million (!) emails. A company spokesman has said that on average about 60% of emails through their system is spam. NZ-source traffic seems to be coming through OK, but nothing at all from overseas, so if you are wondering why you haven't heard from NZ, maybe that's the reason.
    Cheers

    I predict that 2006 will be the year that email through the internet will reach the stage of being unusable.

    The more blocks that are put in the way of spam and virus mail, the less that real emails will get through.
    It is already a non-efficient method of communication.

    Unhappy

    Sorry folks, I'm not too techno, you probably can tell that, but how can you send emails without going through the internet? The whole subject has been made all the more interesting because a friend's ISP has recently designated me a spammer: I send probably a max. of 10 emails a week (I think my email address must be similar to someone else's.)

    We would send emails in precisely the same way that we did before the Internet existed.

    But won't the fire brigade get upset if you start lighting bonfires on top of the cathedral again
