Just out of interest, are those ISP-tied e-mail addresses always run by the ISP, or are they occasionally outsourced in the manner of Rogers' (Canada) or BT's (UK) respective deals with Yahoo! (US)?

It'd be an interesting twist if contracts between e-mail providers outside Israel and ISPs inside suddenly made this requirement for e-mail address portability leak beyond Israel's borders.
