I've been following this elsewhere, but this is a convenient link:

Who owns your e-mail? - Tech News - CNET.com

   The Toronto-based freelance TV producer has been battling
   U.S.-based Inter.net Group for the past 16 months over a billing
   dispute she says may have cost her a lucrative job opportunity.
   Now she wants $110,000 in damages over a policy that led
   Inter.net's Canadian subsidiary to keep her ISP account open for
   incoming e-mail even while denying her access to the account.
   Beyond the money, Carter said she wants to change the way ISPs
   handle suspended and canceled e-mail accounts. At stake, she
   asserts, is an industrywide practice that amounts to extortion, in
   which ISPs may hold private communications hostage until bills are
   settled up.
