Is Manxnet Mail still down ....

Just a FWIW, if you're IT-literate and have your own domain (e.g. plonka.im) you can run hMailServer on a very small Windows system. Of course you'll need a reliable internet, but this cracking software really checks the boxes. I run it on a lowly Intel NUC. This is a good way to avoid mail server problems.

Also I do hope they don't use unpatched Microsoft Exchange - Microsoft Exchange Server attacks: 'They're being hacked faster than we can count', says security company | ZDNet

Thanks all didn't want to start fiddling if it's them. Hey ho but we are cutting edge in tech aren't we ?.

Interesting that they have an e-mail vendor, surprising as there are some good commercial solutions which can handle ~25,000 users on a decent PC/server.

If it's down for too long (usually 24 hours or more) and not accepting incoming mail then mails can be (will be) lost.

ETA: Manx.net uses atmail - interesting choice.

I do hope Manx telecom are going to be offering some discounts/refunds for this dismal performance?

How very droll...that raised a smile. Of course the CEO will bring you your refund personally.

I've got a gmail account. I can't remember ever having any issues. I thoroughly recommend it.

Agreed. You can also host your company's e-mail on Google's servers, I did this for a few years and never had a single issue.

It is free for the vast majority of people isn't it? I don't know what people are expecting refunds for.

Anyone who hasn't already switched to Gmail after the numerous manx.net problems over the years can't really complain it is a bit rubbish when we have all known that for 15 years.

As for the people complaining online that they run a business using manx.net emails when your own domain name costs buttons works better and makes you not look like a total amateur......q
