thank you for the link.  it looked like any other message board with 
similar problems.  i'm not much of a tech when it comes to server setup 
and maintenance.  i have had one or two instances with my email, but not 
long lived.  it was usually functioning properly within an hour or less. 
  all hosting companies have their drawbacks.  i have found that when i 
write to tech support their reply is not as complete as i would like, so 
i have to dig deeper; however, when i get a live person on the phone, i 
seem to receive a fuller explanation to my request or problem.

i recently inquired about using their forum addition on a new web site. 
  i queried if it was similar to a cms.  my reply was yes it was similar 
and that i could add a cms to my package to try if i wanted.  they 
didn't mention anything about how much extra the monthly fee would be, 
but they said that i would be responsible for setting it up.

most of the extra features they offer i don't use (wizards, site maker, 
etc.) because i hand code and ftp my files.  i don't need a lot of 
frills.  i like a simple site that is simple to maintain and that 
doesn't break down much if at all.

all in all, i have not had any problems with 1 and 1 and am satisfied 
for the moment with their service(s).
