When I was moderating a busy bridge mailing list, around 20 years ago,
it was normal practice to post a moderation message when terminating a
thread, but I guess the modern way is to rely on the psychic powers of
the OP instead.

Anyway, in case the OP is reading this list as well as the Thunderbird
support one, here's his original message plus my reply.

I've used Pair Networks for the last 20+ years (https://www.pair.com)
but they are really a web hosting company with a domain registrar
offshoot, so their minimum package provides you your mail, ftp and web
and costs from $5.95/month according to their website (I have a
grandfathered rate, one of their promises was that they would never
raise their rates, and I'm still paying 1997 rates). They've been
absolutely rock solid in my experience, and their support is first class.

No interest other than as a happy customer.
