I'm kind of confused about the difference getting to imap that way as
apposed to the Foreign-group method starting with `B'.

Is there any thing better about either, or are they basically the same?

Is that an indication of a general sorry state of management there?  I

I ask because I'm thinking of getting that service... it is quite

mostly a big sorry fake out like a very lot of the stuff that one sees
online, I'd like to know that now...
