"If you are considering getting a DSL Internet connection direct from SBC, consider this. In order to cut down on spam, SBC is blocking port 25. What this means to the user is that you MUST use SBC's mail server. If you use your laptop on another network which uses SBC global, you will be able to receive through Outlook, BUT NOT SEND.
If I sound frustrated and angry, it's because i've spent every day this week working on getting SBC to unblock for ONE account! The customer got suckered by SBC ("We can do that for you...").
If you get your DSL through a reseller like On-Ramp Indiana (the company that MZD uses), not only is the port not blocked, but you can get tech support immediately, instead of having to email requests and wondering if anyone even even reads them."
"Thank you for your technical support in moving the IPHCA web site from its previous host to its new home without interruption to our members.
Your attention in this matter and diligence in getting it done in the time crunch is appreciated.
Just a quick note expressing our thanks as well as my confidence in the web service support (hosting and development) that supports our organization."
"I have worked with Scott for as long as Scott has been an IT expert. If I have a problem Scott finds the solution. I can count on Scott and his brother Mark at ORI.NET to keep my network up and functioning at peak performance. They treat my network as though it were their network and I like that almost special treatment but all their clients get the same service regardless of the years they have been a customer. I just know that I'm still treated like a new customer not one that has been there from the beginning. I can recommend Scott & On-Ramp Indiana without reservation."
"I just do not have enough good words to say about Scott LePere and his brother and partner Mark LePere, and the very high customer IT service levels they and their staff provide my firm. When you mix highly competent professionals with prompt action, the result is great service and outcomes. I would highly recommend On-Ramp Indiana for all your online service provider needs and IT repair services."
