[email protected] Mail and News Server?

Can anyone tell me the mail and news server for Washington State?

I think it's like mail.sttln1.wa.home.com and news.sttln1.wa.home.com, but those don't work.

Can't seem to find it on their webpage, and their techsupport has me on hold for way too long!

Thanks in advance

Only about news but....

.... at one time I believe @home had things set up so that you simply used news and their kit would accept the alias and connect you to the server that was assigned to your location: using "real" names was advised by some users who were finding that not all servers were created equal!

And things tend to fall down when they have DNS problems and start tinkering/re-configuring according to some users I've encountered in years past!

Try these URLs:Let us know if it works out.

You could try chatting with them. The queue seams to move pretty quickly. Of course it has been a while since I tried that.
