I have a DII(F) account and have my own DII machine on my desk in my office. However, because ALL of the TA are classed as "occasional users" I have been told that I am not entitled to have access to External Gateway Service (EGS). This sounds b*llocks to me! I need access to external email to effectively communicate with my soldiers. I believe that access should be determined by your role; not how often you access a DII machine. I fail to see how using the machine every Tuesday without fail and every in-barracks w/end is occasional. Can anyone confirm/deny whether all TA personnel are subjected to this draconian 'them and us' scenario?
