phew... I thought that I was the only one. it just happened to coincide with my move to Entourage X (more on that later). I was wondering why my Rogers mail was going no where... Oh well.. I'll wait until a day or so passes.
:rolleyes:

I only use the SMTP servers from Rogers, and I'm not having any luck right now too. :mad:

Talking to a lady today who just bought a Mac and was signing up with Rogers Cable over the phone. The guy on the phone askes her, "Why would you get a Mac for? I can't believe anyone buys those." :mad: :rolleyes:

What a friggin Moron. Even if it was the reverse... if some lady just bought a PC, why would an official Rogers employee say something that would make a customer feel bad?


Er... I have a HATE/love relationship with Rogers. I love high speed internet when its working (I don't have DSL in my area). Everyone else pretty much sux in my opinion.

Screw Rogers guys. Use .Mac. Seems much more reliable (at least it has been)....


Rogers support for Macs is p.a.t.h.e.t.i.c. Just che\ck out their email set up pages. Only two options for Macs (and neither actually use Mac specific instructions).However, their actual pipes are great......

bell aren't exactly geniuses either
they cut installation CDs that did not include mac sfw. to connect to sympatico (OS 9 and lower)

it's a matter of the best deal you can get in your area

they both don't really care cause they both kinda' have the market to themselves and what is one or 2 customers?

one plus for rogers is no bit-cap, yet....

I have to say, having used both Shaw Cable and Telus DSL here in the Greater vancouver Area that ADSL is the better choice (at least from Telus, who don't use PPPoE but do require you register a MAC address with their server).

what i don't like about pre OS X PPPoE is Access Manager sfw.

very annoying

rogers and bell is picking the lesser of 2 evils
