Plusnet are changing their Email from POP to IMAP

Where does it say that?

It doesn't. The linked post clearly states you can continue to use POP3 or IMAP.

They've supported both POP3 and IMAP for probably 15 years or more! Nowhere does it suggest that is changing.

I'm guessing from the post that they will be introducing SPF records.

Edit: That is what they are doing - see https://community.plus.net/t5/Email/We-re-making-cha...

It won't affect anyone using their own domain - only xyz@username.plus.com etc

There are millions of similar spam emails. The only harm they do is the noise created by people discussing them. Just use a decent mail filter and you can forget about them.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Exactly, a server side filter, so you don't have to download is even better. The "big boys" of email (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft) have some great filters due to their scale.

I find it amazing that an ISP of Plusnet's size hasn't been using SPF records before now. No wonder people report problems with e-mail not being delivered to some domains!

I won't ask you for your thoughts on them only supporting no connection security (sending and receiving) with plain text passwords.

Not nearly as amazing as the fact that they STILL have not implemented SSL on POP/IMAP.

Edit: as jelv says.

That isn't what I meant,what I was meanining was if you say signed up with plusnet for example and they issued with or you chose an email address or a few email addresses and some of those got compromised how easy would be for you or I to get a company like Plusnet like plusnet to completely disable those email addresses,what obligation do they have to do so?In fact would that make any difference to the ability of the hacker sending emails pretending to be you or I?

Easy you just assign that email address to a new box rather than say the catch all and then ignore it. Or alternatively log on and issue a delete every now and then.
