Seems to me that webmail has been slow for some time now. What's the reason - has the shilling run out ?

Sending or receiving?

Just had a look at my default mailbox with webmail and it shows me my usual giant dollop of spam very quickly Cry

I've always found the PlusNet webmail very slow aswell. Other people seem to find theirs ok, but mine has always taken about 15 seconds to load an inbox (the inbox is empty).

Same here. Webmail's never been fast, but today it's so slow it's timed out several times.....

As a quick test, do I have anyones permission to access webmail using your account login details?

I would like to compare speeds betwene the current webmail solution and the new one, which is in development.

I reckon mine is Ok so you may be better off using one of the ones that say its slow. Or compare it with mine.

The beta webmail box has been taken off line for the rest of the day. I'm hoping they are going to bring it back on a public facing IP, so the beta testing might be able to start sooner than I indicated before. I will keep you updated!

Maybe it is better that you use John's account. My main account is diverted to POP3 and my other account has accumulated mail in it.

Well, it will be the accumulated mail that is causing the slowdown. I want to see if the new server still suffers when there is a lot of waiting mail.

This is mail I have dealt with and am hoping to move into folders on the new setup.
