Email outage?

  1. I've received no emails since last night's network upgrade. I've sent test emails from other addresses to confirm. Normally my spam rate is about 100/day.

    Anyone else having email issues?

    i am not aware of any issue on our mail system.

    have you tried send an email to the account from say, gmail?
  3. Coincidence - I happened to reach my disk space quota at the same time as the network upgrade. If I were in the habit of checking the postmaster account I'd have known that....
  4. I've seen this happen a lot lately and would like to share a suggestion another client and I came up with, all email accounts in SmarterMail, including your Postmaster account can be set to forward messages to another account.

    Many people do not check the Postmaster account so they do not receive disk space notifications, however you can set the Postmaster account to forward to an email account you do check often, or even a 3rd party personal account, with a forward setup the notifications will be passed along to somewhere you are more likely to see it.
    ComputerMan and Michael like this.
  5. Good tip!
