Recommendation to @home users

For the past three days, we've been having far more than the usual problems with @home email addresses. List after list, subscribers with email addresses are being dropped because the @home mail server
is reporting that those addresses have failed.

I've been doing the only thing I can on this end, resubscribing users as I am notified that they have been removed. I know there are some people on some lists who have been resubscribed three or four times since Friday evening.

As an @home user, my advice is to avoid using email addresses. I have over a dozen email accounts from several different domains, all accessible via my @home cable modem connection. I have never even used my email address -- that's how little I think of their service.

There are a lot of free email services:, hotmail (a division of Microsoft), Applelinks, and probably thousands of others. My advice to
@home users is to sign up for a free email account and use that for your
email instead of the address gave you. Some services, such as, allow you to send and receive email using your standard mail client; many other free services require you to read your email on the Web.

Your call as to where to go, but my suggestion is anywhere but for a reliable email account.
