1.5 million have had no e-mail for 2-3 days; did you hear about it?

"Customers using Time Warner Cable's RoadRunner email service in cities across the country have been unable to access email for the last few days. Time Warner Cable representatives said less than 10% of their 15 million customers in 29 states -- about 1.5 million -- are affected by the outages...."

Read the entire story here:

One of our customers affected by this called us today to explain why he hadn't paid for his purchases. What amazed him (and amazed me) is how little publicity this has received. You don't suppose that Time Warner is using its huge media influence to suppress the reporting of this story? Or maybe 1.5 million without email for days just isn't "news".

Anyway, if you have someone who should have contacted you (business-wise or personally) and hasn't, THIS may be the answer.

    I have an email address provided by my internet service provider but have never used it. My internet provider could rightly say half the population of Australia is without use of their email. In my opinion it would be no big issue in reality as most people would use other primary email accounts such as gmail or VMPF private messaging service ;-) 

    Just internet newbies still stuck with their original provider to scared to move because of the difficulty of technological change would remain.

    We try to get all of our 37,000+ customers to get a gmail account. You would be amazed how many solely have hotmail or other similarly terrible email providers. But the worst was around ten years ago when a LOT of people still were on AOL, which was the worst company ever!
