But if you are having problems with their news/mail, why not just use
them as a transport and set up news/mail with a 3rd party? For instance,
you can still get e-mail accounts via Sonic if you wish:
http://www.sonic.net/sales/hosting/ and there are many others (less
expensive). I'm sure that as a previous customer of Sonic that Dane
Jasper & crew would be happy to work with you.
