Eeek!!! I don't like this at all. My ISP takes the mail server down from 
time to time for scheduled maintenance, it's also failed a few times (not 
often, perhaps half a dozen times in 10 years). I don't think it's ever 
been down for more than a day, though. It's certainly been down for more 
than half an hour

To lose messages becuase of that is not something I am at all happy with.
