[SEDXC] Fwd: Comcast Subscriber Problems

It doesn't require a list administrator cull the list for every 
comcast customer.  Each effected user can do it for himself. 
Go to: http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/, select the 
list and log in with the address to which your list mail is being 
sent.  Once logged in, the user can reset mail delivery or even 
change e-mail addresses.  

I started to "fix" the comcast.net addresses for the two lists 
that I handle (> 2,000 combined users).  After more than an 
hour I was less than half way through one of the lists, I gave 
up ... I did not have four hours to spend "cleaning up" for users 
with unreliable e-mail systems.  

For those who want alternate e-mail, check into QTH.com (KA9FOX's 
service).  He offers e-mail only hosting for $12.00 a year (200 
MB, five e-mail accounts, pop3/imap/smtp and web mail).  If you 
need a Domain Name, he offers domain name registration in .com, 
.net., .org, . us, .info or .biz for $9.95 per year.
