Vivaciti Hosting email

Cant send email getting connection refused, sent a ticket earlier which was replied to instantly saying it was being fixed. Anyone else? Still down for me.

It has been down three times for me over the last 5-6 days, also sent a ticket in when it first occurred. I was told the same as you earlier today, there is a problem, which is being fixed.

This has become a problem for myself, as I am missing emails from today again. I have been looking at email hosting elsewhere this evening, as I need a working email address by Wednesday at the latest next week, and if the servers are not fixed, it will cause a very big headache next week.

Can anyone recommend a good and reliable email host, is 1 and 1 ok?

Thanks

The Free version of Google Apps is good if you only need fewer than 10 users and have your own domain already.

Been using tsohost for a couple of years. Never had an issue.
Contacted support a couple of times for set up help and have had instant responses late into the evening.

Thank you, to both of you, I have had a look at Tsohost, just one question Roberto, as you use them for email, is there a spam filter on the email accounts, if there is, can it be turned off?

Thanks again.

I haven't looked recently, but there was a recent upgrade to many things, and they said their spam filter system was to be improved. I haven't checked.

It was/(is?) Spam Assassin, and yes it could be turned off. I certainly had/have it letting everything through but with "SPAM" inserted at the beginning of the Subject for dodgy mails. That's how I liked it. You can also adjust the scoring level for that to happen.

I've had enough for tonight. Remind me tomorrow. If I look now I could misunderstand something and give you duff info. I'm dog tired.

Had my email account with Hostway for some years now, not the cheapest but very reliable level of spam filtering depends which service you buy.

Thank you for the reply, they look good and probably suits my needs.

I suppose you are not limited to using the pop3 email service with only MS outlook, as I use Forte Agent for emails and would prefer to carry on using Agent for emails.
