[Techtalk] pon dsl-provider deprecated at boot up time

To all,

Sorry about my multiple posts, the changes made locked me out of
the local telecoms smtp server somehow with "540 you are not me"
messages, or so I conjecture. Inadvertantly the store of unsent messages
was sent when I changed to another server provided by my
direct isp.

[Here in SA only the local telecom monopoly actually supplies an adsl
connection, the individual ISPs however administer the individual
accounts of their customers]
