Hmmm. . . I'm surprised. . .

We have used Loftmail for years, and they've been excellent for a long 
while.  I mean, my address (es) are all over the place, and I get two or 
three spams a day. . .

I maintained a blacklist with them for a while, but I rarely look at it now.

The only issue I have, which we're all aware of, is the delays of spamd, 
which can be a hassle since some providers don't seem to get the idea of 
smtp standards. . .

But I'd recommend having an offline conversation with Loftmail, since 
they are receptive.

I know it's a jumbled world there. . .
