Just over a year ago I returned to MTS internet service for almost one day.  The problem, I was promised (by sales of course) that I could have my old "" address back, only to find that it was actually "" with all its outsourcing connotations.  Today at a connect store I asked the same question and was told it was still  What happened to all the rumors that was returning?  Is the email service still outsourced?  What happened to the rumors that it was to be inhouse?  Is it?  With MTS losing money and wanting to be customer oriented why not go back to an email address of and get back all those who switched to shaw because of the outsourcing to microsoft fiasco?

Still outsourced but not to Microsoft anymore as Microsoft is getting out of 3rd party email service. 

For the cost of running a  physical data center, disk space and servers etc its probably not worth any ISP being in the email business when there are companies like Syancor that specialize in providing email service for ISP's.  

Same idea as companies like EPIC  data centers in Winnipeg moving different companies off their own data center to a central one to save money.
