Same here...about 4:30 I noticed messages sent to Xtra were being accepted
by mta.xtra.co.nz but not arriving in users pop accounts... (at least not
within a reasonable amount of time) and just in the last 5 minutes
connections are being refused as well...
Just a quick email cause I can't be bothered getting permission from my
boss to post from work.
Anyway look like our friend Xtra might be having problems with email. I'm
seeing queues building up and manual connects are just timing out.

This has been taken up by the DNC - check out her website for the latest
I'm not sure whether they are using an old version of the .nz zone file
(although these haven't been available for at least 18 months), or they have
some scripting engine pulling the information of the general WhoIs. This
breaches the DNC policy on use of private information for commercial gain,
yada, yada ...

I've been getting a few good old snail mail letters from
Domainnamesnz.com offering me to register domain names. Eg: I own
learnbydestroying.co.nz and the "offer" is for learnbydestroying.net .
How ever since these letters include; Reference #, MPID ? , Closing
Date, Credit card details, and very little info to conclude that this is
a Renewal many people have inadvertently paid the money ( $237 for two
years ! ) thinking it's a Domainz or other registrar invoice.
I'm not questioning the legality of this , as I am no expert, how ever
im interested to know how so many of my clients and myself ended up with
these letters? Anyone else experienced these letters or perhaps had
clients pay for what they thought was a valid renewal?

I have recently moved house and good old telecom has connected our phone
line to the empty flat behind us instead of ours what is worse is even
though this is clearly their fault, refused to fix it until tomorrow
morning (when 123 staff are on duty)
Real pain in the ass
Anyone share similar hassles with telecom? Anyone know the appropriate
channels to complain?

It is seems spamarrest.com is offline. Had a customer who uses it ring as
they can't check their mail - invalid username and password. spamarrest.com
site says it will back online in a few minutes, but it has been offline
since about 7:30 this morning.
I wonder if they are under DDoS attacks or if it is a spin off from
osirusoft.com and spews.org being closed down...
As part of tracing our customers infected with the Blaster D, Nachi worm 
I've been go through our traffic logs.
A side effect of this is that it's really easy for me to get a list of NZ
ip's that appear to be infected and that have pinged our customers.
If anyone  is interested in a copy I'd be happy to send them one.
Format will be:
Send me an email if interested. I can probably do last night and some of
this morning. 2 hours worth of last night was approx 400 different ips.
 This one:
 Network or abuse admins I mean, not other people who may be on the list.

I have seen some older stuff only support half duplex, so you may not
have the duplex full command. Make sure you've got both ends set to the
same. I haven't had much luck with autonegotiate, and just tend to lock
