I meant your email capacity. Back then, my email account could have up to 100MB on it.

Sorry. To be honest I don't know what the limit is now. I've not had any issues with email size in some time, so I haven't been compelled to check. It's considerably more than 100MB though.

This episode has made me begin to re-examine that policy though. I think that what I would probably have to do is maintain the Earthlink account, in addition to a new one, for quite a while. Probably a year or so. A bother, but I have started thinking about it.

One thing I can recommend is setting up a gmail account and redirect all mail to your earthlink account. So you can start giving out the gmail address but still only have to use the earthlink account to access your mail. Eventually you can drop earthlink and use gmail exclusively. This also has the benefit that earthlink will not block the mails being redirected through gmail, since it sees them as coming from a Google IP address.

What I did when email was blocked in work due to a messup with the proxies was to switch to set up gmail to pull mail from my other accounts. Eventually I switched to using gmail exclusively - it pulls the email from the server then deletes it, then I download the mail locally from gmail. Only problem is mail sent to my other accounts takes a while to appear in gmail unless I poll manually.

Always meant to go down the route of switching my domain's mail handler to Google Apps but the thought of actually doing it always brings me out in a cold sweat... maybe when I finally get around to changing hosts.

They appear to be blocking again. So, I now have a gmail address, as recommended, and it's working just fine.

I've set up my email application to poll gmail directly, so I don't anticipate any more issues. Hopefully.

I've about had enough of Earthlink.
