Webmail server sometimes very slow to respond

For several weeks now, I've found that accessing the PlusNet webmail server (https://webmail.plus.net/) can be very slow and sometimes hangs completely.  It's intermittent, sometime OK, sometime very slow as described above.    It's not my internet connection which is in excess of 60mbps.
Anyone else have this problem?

Frequently, especially so in the past half an hour.
I've given up.

Yep - it's running stupid slow for me too. Typically taking around 20 seconds to open an email.
Has one of the hamsters that power it come to a sticky end?

I tried going back to using the old version - the squirrels seem to be still going strong

Thanks for the feedback - would seem that a serious look at server capacity is in order

Re: Webmail server sometimes very slow to respond

I just tried squirrelmail and it performs a hell of a lot faster than the "advanced" webmail, almost instantaneous!
Come on PlusNet - do something about the creaking webmail server(s)
