This is the first I have heard of them retiring the @paradise mail - I
have a number of client who use it for redirects/etc to other things
who are not especially tech savvy and have not told me.
I don't understand why they would even bother to retire it, surely
moving the MX for the domain is simpler than trying to kill it?
It turns out that it is the Paradise dial up accounts that are being retired
and any mailboxes associated with a dial up account are being retired as
well. TC are forwarding paradise email addresses to TC mailboxes.
Indeed, had a few mailboxes on Clear.net
that were associated with a
pay per use dial-up plan retired, but eventually got them sorted. They
mentioned doing the same for paradise.net
as well at the time.
Long live dial-up. ;)
