Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Thus is canning its pay-as-you-go ISP In2Home at the end of the month.

A spokeswoman for the company said the decision had been taken thanks to a change in strategy at Thus (formerly Scottish Telecom) as it focuses on providing services in return for cash.

She added that it was all part of Thus' shift to providing telco and Internet services to business users instead of ordinary Joes.

The service - launched in April 1999 - will no longer be available from 23:59 on the 31st of March 2002.

Anyone who still uses In2Home for email is advised to find a new service provider within the next couple of weeks.

Still, not wishing to end this story on a downbeat note, we've just heard that across the pond Web hosting outfit, shanje.com, has acquired free email operation MailandNews.com.

MailandNews.com - which has around half a million accounts - was due to fold at the end of last week but has now been saved. Phew-weeee.

The service will be offline for a day or so while all the accounts are migrated to its new hosts.

The operation will be relaunched as shanjemail.com later this week. ®
