Globalnet Email Not Working

Webmail logins to legacy globalnet email account no longer working despite no changes at my end. No facility to reset password. Big clue maybe that the relevant email address does NOT appear under email settings in the Control Panel.

 

So no way to access emails!

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

We have a "legacy" globalnet email account too, and it has been behaving wierdly over the last few months.

 

This last week, many of our friends have received "mailbox full" messages and very few emails have been arriving.  I've checked webmail and we have very few emails (for a change) and we certainly are nowhere near being full!  And, I can find no way to determine how much space I have actually used.

 

Until recently I've been accessing the globalnet emails via the madasafish webmail and pop servers but webmail has been switched to plusnet.

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

Since Madasafish webmail has been disabled I assume you are using Plusnet webmail at https://webmail.plus.net instead and supplying your full Globanet email address and password.

To get folder sizes:

When mail is displayed click the small gearwheel bottom left and select Manage folders. You should get a list of all folders.

Click a folder name and select the Information tab. Then click where it says to get folder size.

Repeat for other folders.

If you delete any messages you need to empty the Deleted Items folder (use the gearwheel option) and compact any affected folders to recover the space.

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

The Globalnet mail fixed itself and mail started fooding in... until yesterday!

 

No mail at all was received yesterday, until 10AM this morning when it started receiving again.

 

The mail servers seem to be having problems receiving mail and there is nothing I can do about it, emptying mail folders and compacting makes no difference.

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

The plot thickens...

Emails to xxx@globalnet.co.uk and anything@xxx.globalnet.co.uk seem to be going through.

However, I also have a domain supplied by Globalnet that is an alias but mail to that alias domain appear not be receiving properly.

 

A lot of my wifes friends have contacted her about her not replying to emails they have sent but we have not received - what is going on?

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

Where is your domain registered?  Is the domain pointing to Globalnet or is there some kind of forwarding from whoever hosts the domain to the Globalnet addresses?

Re: Globalnet Email Not Working

Now this is wierd...

I looked at all the setting on all my devices and then in webmail and in webmail I saw that the account has some hidden folders, including one named "Sent Items" and one named "Deleted Items".

The hidden Deleted Items had over 2,500 emails in it!

So the email account has TWO folders named "Deleted Items" and I must have one device that is moving deleted mails to the wrong folder - but I don;t know which device and how can I tell as it has the same name!

I can only imagine that at some time recently the email account had been migrated but built-in folders did not get created and my devices created them but the deleted items never got emptied.

So now I check the folders every day and the mailbox is no longer full.
