    Vodamail Super Fast

    I noticed how considerably faster Vodamail's IMAP mail server is in comparison to my ISP's IMAP mail server. Is this because they provide a few dedicated mail servers in their data center in Midrand or is it just because most people use their e-mail service for mobile [text-only] e-mail?
