  1. Good lord, my post was making a joke!!!! Did anyone actually LOOK at the link (before it was censored)? It is one thing to start an anti-CES thread here (not cool) and quite another to be overly defensive about any diss to the email system, joke or not. Please, just get on with what's truly important... </soapbox>
  2. These folks claim to be "The World's Only 100% Honest Host" http:/ /www.xxxxxxxxx.xx/ I'm thinking of switching [Edit by SteveT (turetzsr) to change URL domain to "xxxxxxxxx.xx"]
  3. Not the previous poster, but responding because I agree with him/her. I too have asked for advance email notice for planned outages, as I could have forwarded emails somewhere else before they became trapped within CESmail. This obviously implies you can retrieve said advance notice email, before the outage begins.
  4. That link points (for me) to the main spamcop.net webpage and I don't see a thing about the email system being down. In any event, the Email System News page my Dad can handle because I favorited it for him in his browser. All these other places to maybe find more information are not particularly helpful to him. He ought to be able to find out what's going on from the News page... system down *is* news, isn't it?
  5. Yes. But my point is -- this is supposed to be one way to get current news on the system status. If it is updated with said news, that is... which it still is not, as of this writing.
  6. Spamcop Mail System News page: http://mail.spamcop.net/news.php This page didn't used to be reachable if the mail system was unavailable, but at some point in the past that changed, perhaps after I made several requests to Jeff T. to host the page somewhere else so it was useful in an outage. It does have to be updated, however, to be useful...
  7. My 79 year old dad doesn't grok forums or Twitter, so I set him up with a browser favorite to the Mail System News page. Except the news page hasn't been updated :-(
  8. I've remained with Spamcop email (CESmail) since its inception, for 1) privacy, 2) ISP independence, 3) SMTP server, 4) webmail, 5) IMAP access, 6) pop mail from players like yahoo etc. After each Spamcop email outage I've had a look around, but come up short. For my needs Spamcop email is still the best game out there. Just wish they had better failover so outages weren't so long. Right now I have confirmation emails (for various things) waiting for my acknowledgement. Can't move on without them. As some are related to applying for jobs I'm rather nervous about the length of this outage. Every provider experiences outages. If they are managed properly (HA failover, etc.) they are never visible to customers. This is what's important. I too would pay more per year if that ensured I never saw a break or significant slowdown in service.
  9. Can someone make these two email news feed links (news page, twitter) very prominent and at the very top of this forum, above all the older stuff?
  10. Thank you, all seems to be in working order for me. --appyface
  11. If that's directed at me, I'll take the job. Of course, that presumes I have a way to reach him in two years and eleven months --appyface
  12. I've been doing the same. But I don't want to teach my Dad and my other family members about this getaround -- it's taken way too long to convince them why they need security and that could be undone in a matter of seconds LOL Seriously, they don't have the judgment to know when this is OK and when it is not (and as far as I'm concerned, it's *never* OK). I've had my spamcop mail accounts since the very beginning. I never thought I'd hear myself say it, but I'm starting to google up alternative providers. I really like this service and would just as soon stay put, so I don't say this lightly. And I won't jump ship lightly either. But I'd sure like to know why we are up the proverbial creek without a paddle. Someone in charge should have noticed the "outage" by now. Again I do hope we are not looking at some horrible event as the reason. I found a couple of old email addys for Jeff Tucker. I have no idea if he is still involved or if those emails are any good, but I gave them a try. --appyface
  13. I hope nothing horrible has happened to owners or their family. That would be an awful reason why no one is at the helm right now. I wish there was someone around we could ask, who has direct contact. --appyface
  14. Different, but still not fixed for me. When adding SSL and port 993 back to my email client, I now get this warning.
