Email connection u/s?

Hi folks,
Very suprised to find that, although all other functions are OK my browser failes to access myemail account through a failure to connect to Webmail on Plus.
Is this rare? have I a problem or does it happen from time to time?? Not happened to me before.

It is if he is sensible and has the service status posts delivered to something like a Google email address!
I'm sure that the RSS feed did have it and it was probable that the feed collator hadn't picked it up. I use Google reader and I've seen on more than one occasion that it hasn't got a posting but if I go to http://usertools.plus.net/status/status.xml it is there. From Google's help page

Even after your feed has been fetched for the first time, your feed won't be updated in Reader instantly; it may take a few hours for your feed to be updated depending on when your feed is next crawled. Please see Google's Webmaster Help article for information on how Google crawls the web.

Re: Email connection u/s?

does the PN rss feed rely on Google?  it was on the Priority status - Bobs link. The actual RSS User Tools entry was dated
