Re: Email/Webmail connection issues (96159) - UPDATE

This is an update to our previous post, regarding work underway on our webmail service.

Our engineers have been working on the service throughout the day, and further maintenance will be carried out this evening.

We'll continue to monitor the situation, and provide updates as they become available.

In the meantime, some of our customers are experiencing a better service using a client. Details on how to set one up can be found on our Community Forums here: How to get your e-mails through a e-mail client.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Kind Regards,

This is an update to our previous post regarding work that is underway on our webmail service.

 

Our engineers have been working non-stop analysing the platform, planning and executing improvement works. One of the things we’ve completed to ease the problem is adding memory to our mail storage server capacity.

 

Customers are reporting that they are seeing performance improvements especially when using a mail client, details of how to set one of these up can be found in the link below:

This is an update to our previous posts regarding work on our webmail service.

 

We’ve been working hard to improve the slowdowns some customers have been experiencing when using our webmail service.

 

Customers should now be seeing a significant improvement to the platform since this problem was raised following a number of changes made including increasing the mail storage and number of mail servers.

 

We’re aware that a small number of our customers are continuing to experience issues and would like to reassure our customers that our engineers are continuing to work on improvements.

 

Thank you for your continued patience and apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
