Bernie - I understand the rationale, but unless I'm mistaken the last
mail I had from you said webmail would stay up after all. All I'm
saying is, consider sending a mail before cutting off service.

there were no bounces, my mails went into a black hole which has me

350+ Mb of sent/received mail, which if I lose will really be

help please!
