  1. They must have been malfunctioning several days then. Or only being operational intermittently. But after waiting a few more days, I managed to renew my account without further problems.
  2. Hi. It is time for the annual renewal. I use the link provided in the reminder email, but when I get to the PayPal page for the actual payment, I am faced with this: But no matter how many times I try, or starts all over with a freshly opened browser, or even reboots my PC, I always end up with this error. I have tried this on and off over a few days now, but to no avail. Is there a known problem with payments at the moment? Anything else I can try on my end? Best regards, Mikael
  3. Everything seems fine now. My missing mails has just appeared. Sorry about PM'ing you, but that was the advice I got as writing support[at]spamcop.net did not open a ticket, likely due to the problem I tried to report.
  4. Hi. The email problem I spoke of yesterday has been narrowed down to smtp.cesmail.net I normally use smtp.cesmail.net as my default mail gateway. However, as of yesterday, all mail sent via smtp.cesmail.net to my ******[at]spamcop.net address, is accepted but not delivered. Mailing ******[at]spamcop.net via another smtp gateway works fine. Mailing other (not spamcop related) addresses via smtp.cesmail.net also works fine. I have PM'ed jefft about this. If he is not the person to handle this anymore, please let me know who is. Best regards, Mikael
  5. An update: This is not a general problem. It seems to be specific for smtp.cesmail.net, and only in certain circumstances. I will make a new topic with further details.
  6. Thanks. I already tried the problem button yesterday, just before I went to bed. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to get the attention of anyone. I have now tried the other suggestions. I hope I am getting through to someone this time.
  7. Unfortunately it hasn't been resolved for me. My problems started after the big outage.
  8. Unfortunately, this problem is back and has targetted me. Only difference is that it is 100% of my mails that are missing. I have reported the problem through the webmail form.
  9. Is there a delay in email delivery due to this problem (a backlog being processed perhaps), and if so, how long is this delay? I know of at least two emails, that has been delivered to smtp.cesmail.net, but they are nowhere to be found. The oldest has been missing for 4 hours now. And no, they are not in my held mail either -Mikael
  10. Oh, that was just to ensure everyone could download the file intact. I have had problems in the past, where unknown file types (unknown to my webserver that is) would get corrupted if downloaded with certain webbrowsers. In hindsight, I probably should have provided the .pcap file instead, and ensured that it had a suitable mime type on the server. But, problem solved, and that is all that matter.
  11. Of course you shouldn't trust an unknown file. I just thought Wireshark (former Ethereal) was more widely known, especially among people that are no strangers to network analysis and troubleshooting. Anyway, this morning all problems are gone. Email coming through and I can also load the news.pgp page fast and reliably every time i refresh the page. I have no idea what happened yesterday, but as this isn't a more widespread problem, I'd guess it was network problems somewhere near my end.
  12. Yes. Neither ping nor traceroute reveal anything abnormal. I have no packet loss. Just loading the news.php page is problematic (and with the lack of emails in my inbox, that test will have to do for now). Here is a Wireshark capture file of the network traffic: Wireshark capture
  13. Well, that wasn't it. I am still having problems.
  14. I've tried to clean out all waiting mails now. Some mails actually got through, like the notification mail from this forum, so it might be one of the other mails screwing things up. Time will tell. However, that wouldn't explain the trouble reading the news webpage.
  15. Hi. I can't seem to pop my email from pop.spamcop.net today. Is this a known problem at the moment? My mail client connects, and see 6 new mails. But while retrieving the first one, the transfer stalls. When I log the network traffic with Wireshark, I see corrupted packets (checksum errors and sudden binary garbage in the data, where plain text should have been), packet loss etc. I see the same at port 80 when trying to load the news page: http://mail.spamcop.net/news.php. Not surprisingly, as it is the same server ( as far as I can tell. Webmail and spam reporting (mailsc.spamcop.net) works fine. Am I the only one experiencing this?
