First of all - thanks to all who have helped so far. I have had some
problems with my mail client, but it seems to be sorted out now.
I haven't had the chance to try out all the suggestions, but since you

all seem to be stratum 16! Is this something in my settings? All the
server names come from the public list of stratum 2 servers.
