Re: Messages are being flagged as [...]

Can you confirm that ?
When did this happen, and can we opt out ?

I don't want my incoming mail being flagged as [MARKETING] or [SUSPECTED SPAM], especially since I can't find anywhere in the webmail to say "no, this is not marketing, or suspected spam".

Messages are being flagged as [...]

Don't know whether it's just me, but since last Wednesday (approx 4.30pm), my incoming emails started being flagged as [MARKETING], or [SUSPECTED SPAM] (this is via Exetels pop3 service). I haven't enabled spam filtering, so have no idea why this has suddenly started happening. Really annoying too ....

Re: Provisioning strangeness

Hi again.

So, on average, my performance has been OK.
Speedtest is giving about 5Mb/s on average.

Looking through my previous runs (which, I beleive were actually piggy backing my neighbours line), I was getting closer to 7Mb/s (peaking at 8Mb/s).
Is there anything else that can be done ?

Re: Provisioning strangeness

Hi. Just a heads up (I've also sent an email). An Optus tech came by today to finish up (some tagging/un-tagging thing), and I mentioned the speed issue. He had a quick look at the copper, and noticed it was rather corroded, so he swapped the copper pair with the other, unused copper pair, and the l...

Re: Provisioning strangeness

Hi. Just an FYI that the tech has come by and I now have a properly established line (not piggybacking on someone elses). However, my DSL speeds are now abysmally slow ! When I was on the "zombie" line, an exetel speed test gave me download speeds of above 750KB/s. On this line, however, I'm only ge...

Re: Provisioning strangeness

Just an FYI ... Dialling the provided number for the CLI test actually gave a "please check the number and try again" type message. Also, dialling my allocated from my mobile phone, though I heard it ringing on my mobile, the physical phone didn't actually ring. Mayhap the PSTN line isn't provisione...

Re: Provisioning strangeness

So I spoke with provisioning. Seems like the it's something on the supplier end (Telstra or Optus) who's coming over. I've really got no clue why. The line works, checked my members page, and data is being monitored ... What could a Telstra/Optus tech possibly do to an already active and functional ...

Provisioning strangeness

Hi.
Just a curiosity.
I've recently had a new line installed. Though it's status is still pending, the line is actually active and functional.
On top of that, I've just received an email that a technician will come over to complete the cut over.

Is that really necessary?

Regular dropouts

Hi. I get regular line dropouts (let's say one every couple of hours), as well as a maximum download speed of about 450KBps (which was about what I was getting on ADSL1). I was just wondering if there are any checks that can be done on your end to see if there is a problem, or if it's a problem on m...
