17 When said ISP starts blocking legitimate email from people I correspond with on a regular basis who use gmail and hotmail, they become as reliable as old fashioned mail services have become.
19 And the blocking is done silently and can't be disabled.
21 That already made me start looking for alternatives.
23 When they then refused to relay emails using my own domain even though I am inside their network and am not sending large amounts of email. I ended up using those alternatives.
25 I would prefer to use my ISP to handle the mail deliveries, but when they are this incompetent....
