Re: Problems connecting to POP3/IMAP

Right now, BT is up to its old tricks, in fact worse then ever.

No emails are downloadable, not even viewable via webmail. The message is

Unknown Host

Description: Unable to locate the server requested --- the server does not have a DNS entry. Perhaps there is a misspelling in the server name, or the server no longer exists. Double-check the name and try again.

Or, if you can get to the login screen, it admits that they are having problems and are working on it.

Today is Thursday 5th Sept.. Two days ago it was not possible to download emails for the full day (but webmail was available).

In recent weeks, it started to get difficult to actually send emails from my email client. This was fixed by changing "Secure Sockets When Sending" to "Never". Previously the setting was "If available STARTTLS" (I'm not sure whether it might have been "Required STARTTLS". I now have it set to "Never" but have no idea whether I am risking security with that setting.

Re: Problems connecting to POP3/IMAP

Like everyone else I was affected by the Yahoo mail outage yesterday, but by last night all was working again including mail being downloaded to my POP3 mail client on my desktop (Thunderbird). 

Get up at 6am this morning and now POP3 isn't working.  Webmail is available but not downloading to my desktop client.   What the hell happened while we were sleeping?!  Webmail is so cumbersome compared to Thunderbird it drives me insane to use it.   

Edit: 7.30am and my mail has just downloaded to Thunderbird.  Mine is not to reason why!

YAHOO outage

After the Yahoo! Mail outage things seemed to get back to normal for me  during the course of yesterday afternoon. One glitch that does not seem to have fixed itself is emails sent to me during the outage, yesterday morning. I guess I just have to hope that if I’ve missed anything important the sender will resend it because s/he does not receive a reply. But of course that isn’t going to happen with certain emails which are sending information to me and which do not require a reply. 

Any suggestions ?

Re: YAHOO outage

I received some late emails about 5am delayed from the day before.

I was testing emails with a friend also on BT Yahoo and he commented that the time stamps were an hour behind on them when the system started working again.

Boom - here we go again.

Monday morning, start of a working week, and I can't get emails down to my email client.

Re: YAHOO outage

Monday's failures corrected themselves by late morning.

It's now Friday morning and guess what - no emails downloading.

Oh, and they just sent me this month's bill only yesterday. At least the email was working for them to send me a bill.

I learned from a customer that she sent us a form during the major outage period 7/10 days ago which never arrived, not even belatedly. How much other business might we have lost?
