Dear auDA,

To be honest, I am disappointed,

With MIT, I do have a choice it seems about how
to inform my clients of the new transition:

>>Please find below a copy of the message that Melbourne IT will be
sending on Monday 24th June, 2002 to the administrative e-mail contact
of all domains that are currently managed under reseller accounts.

If you would not like Melbourne IT to send this communication to the registrants on your reseller account, simply reply to this e-
mail adding the word OPTOUT to end of the subject line, by COB today.

If you choose the opt out option, we request that you convey this
information to your customers as soon as practicable.

But with auDA, It seems I do not and you around telling every admin contract
of any domain under our management with emails like this:

>>>auDA's new Australian domain name regime and names
.au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) is the government-endorsed manager
of Australian domain names (see

What makes you different from ING, you seems to have went directly
to our clients anyway. this question needs to be answered!!! :-(

You are being sent this email because you are listed in the database as the administrative contact for the above name.

This email contains important information about the above domain name. If you are no longer the administrative contact
and you know who has replaced you, please urgently forward this email to them. If you do not know who has replaced you
forward this email to noadmin&#167;

Today, auDA introduced a new domain name regime and new domain name policy rules. This will affect your domain name in
the following ways.

Under the new system, each domain name has a Registrar of Record entered in the database. Your Registrar of Record is
Melbourne IT Ltd. This is because when you licensed or last renewed the domain name, you did so directly through
Melbourne IT Ltd or through one of their domain name resellers.

When your domain name licence expires you can renew it through your Registrar of Record or you may decide to transfer
to another auDA Accredited Registrar, in which case they will become your new Registrar of Record. The cost of renewal
may vary from registrar to registrar. It is important to check the service offerings and charges of each registrar
before making your choice. A list of registrars and links to their websites is available at

If you have any queries about your domain name you should contact Melbourne IT Ltd or the reseller you normally deal
