[rescue] anyone else here on AT&T Broadband (now Comcast) ?

Just had it happen with netscape.net ... then I remembered... netscape is
AOL :-)

So, I added

netscape.net	smtp:[smtp.comcast.net]

to my mailertable file and rebuild the .db ....

it's working good....

Thankfully the only issue with using smtp.comcast.net is it's not
speedy... it imparts some minutes of delay... but it gets there.
