my "poor" is when you get no email which disappears into the ethos for a couple of days then returns to normal but you do not get the missing emails when its works again. During the poor spells all you get is no messages no error box or indication that all's no well, even on the pipex server.
I do know that last year or possible the year before, Tiscali had a problem with forwarding emails, and they promised that 'after essential maintenance' no emails would be lost.
On that occasion, everything seemed fine at my end, and I never did hear of anyone experiencing any major problems.
One thing that I have noticed, is the increase around Christmas time of spam, then the recent reduction of spam in my mailbox. Perhaps Tiscali have done some adjustments, which are treating some emails as potential spamming, hence some emails are not being sent on. Only a guess though?.
