    Exactly - that's my plan

    No new mail arriving

    I have not posted in these forums for a long time, sometimes hardware fails and you live with it, but it seems like this happens every 3 months. My business relies on spamcop, I use it both as a spam blocker and an email agregator. I at least 150 email accounts, mostly low volume, a few of those still feed directly to spamcop, but as service here has dropped I've relazed that leaves me trapped with no easy way of fetching those emails. Most of my email accounts are now gmail and forward to spamcop, but retain all emails so they are acccessable in days like today. I just started going through my gmails and changed the forwarding away form spamcop and into another gmail account. Why? Cause my account here expires in 4 days and when I went to renew, my virus blocker warns me that spamcop is a risk cause their certificate expired. This is pathetic.
  3. Its up but _ have no emails before 6am this morning and all my custom folders are gone. However the filters are working and its moving new email to the folders that are not there.

    I just found a forum with a thread on the problem - in case you are interested http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/remark,13042611

    Yes I can access the Sympatico server email through the web. My account is continuing to get some email coming in [but from talking to a client I know it's losing some] and Spamcop is retrieving it. My wife's account has got no email for probably the last 24 hours at least and she has talked to people that have sent her email. I've sent several emails to her, and none of them appear. At this point I have no idea whether Sympatico will ever find that missing mail and the other problem is that the sender gets no notification it was not sent correctly.

    Bingo Got through to them "Out SMTP server is currently experiencing technial difficulties - our POP server is experiencing technical difficulties - members may encounter difficulties in sending or receiving mail" Yeah, like my wife has not had email for 24 hours and that totally screws up her day tomorrow. And the email just disapears - the sender gets no notice that it was rejected. My advice to anyone - stay as far away from Sympatico as possible. Every time I have a service call I can figure on spending two hours arguing with them - then they send a techie to my house, and I have to agree to pay charges if there is any wiring problem. I totally wired my house with cat5 cable, including the phone lines, so there is never a problem. It's always them. Sorry to bother you guys and thanks - since the replies did point me in the right direction.

    I normally preview all my mail in spamcop through the browser, and process most of my messages there. I only bring up Eudora a few times a day to download what is left. So I don't have too many duplicates left since I deleted most of them. Right now I have two dups since the last time I ran Eudora, so I'm pretty sure it's not from Eudora problems. Eudora is set to delete from the spamcop server after getting messages. However most email is coming in through my ISP email account and spamcop is pulling the email from there. Then Eudora pulls in from Spamcop. I have almost no email coming in direct to my spamcop email account. So if no one else has reported this, perhaps my ISP is screwing up, and not deleting messages after spamcop fetches them. In which case I'm up the creek - since my ISP -Bell Sympatico Canada is absolutley incompetant with tech support. The last time I had a problem, they managed to disconnect my DSL service for over a week. They installed a new modem, and set the office end to reflect the signals from the old modem. If the dups keep coming, I will set Eudora to fetch directly from the ISP eliminating spamcop from the loop. I also have a lot of duplicate messages coming in through "Secret email accounts" on http://sneakemail.com/ - I can switch that to go direct to my spamcop account and bypass Sympatico. Those two changes will help pin the problem.

    Since the last duplicate came from this forum as the registration mail, and all the dups I'm looking at are things like notification emails from forums, reports from eBay, Google News Alerts - I do not think the problem is spammers. I'm looking at all the email from the http://webmail.spamcop.net/ webmail thourgh my browser and deleting the duplicates before they get to my email reader - [which is Eudora] - so Eudora is not the problem. As far as delays - I just did a test - I have two spamcop accounts - the other from my wife. From webmail.spamcop.net I sent a message to myself, it arrived in less than 30 seconds and sent one to my wife - 20 minutes later it still has not come through. Then I just sent another and it arrived immediately. Where is the first one - lost or delayed?
  9. In around the last 24 hours I have started to receive multiple copies of some email - I view this in http://webmail.spamcop.net/ Some email is single, some doubled or more, in one case, probably about 20 copies. There is no pattern to where the duplicate mail is coming from or why. I've been running spamcop for several years and never seen this. I've had no spamcop problems for at least six months. I just registered for this forum, and the validation email was doubled. Here are part of the headers from two duplicate mails Received: (qmail 3035 invoked from network); 31 Mar 2005 23:52:58 -0000 Received: from unknown (HELO c60.cesmail.net) (192.168.1.105) by blade4.cesmail.net with SMTP; 31 Mar 2005 23:52:58 -0000 Received: from mailgate.cesmail.net (216.154.195.36) by c60.cesmail.net with SMTP; 31 Mar 2005 18:52:44 -0500 ---- Received: (qmail 18470 invoked from network); 31 Mar 2005 23:41:51 -0000 Received: from unknown (HELO c60.cesmail.net) (192.168.1.105) by blade6.cesmail.net with SMTP; 31 Mar 2005 23:41:51 -0000 Received: from mailgate.cesmail.net (216.154.195.36) by c60.cesmail.net with SMTP; 31 Mar 2005 18:41:32 -0500 ----------- Some mail seems to be taking a long time to get through - several hours - and perhaps some is getting lost
