  1. Hi Matt:

    Thanks!

    I am going to double check that you are right (I just checked mindspring.com and it looks like you are right) and then file a bug to get it fixed by following the process at:
    http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/ISP+Database#How_are_ISP_database_records_added_and_how_are_they_validated_to_ensure_that_they_are_legitimate_

    BTW we recently added the following warning at the top of every page of ispdb.mozillamessaging.com to clarify that ispdb does NOT reflect live data used by Thunderbird:
    "ISPDB is not yet live, configurations submitted here must be published via the manual process documented here."
