So, what now? VFEmail.net, openmail.cc., etc., have been down for days. Has Rick thrown in the towel? Is the service ever going to be usable again? That was one of my few "real" email providers...

It's back!

Finally! After many days, the service is suddenly back up for me. I have no idea why it was unavailable and no idea why it came back. Mail.india behaves strangely at times.
