- Mail is Mail, FTP/Shell is FTP/Shell!
And, I'm sorry for this new "feature", but it's our first step in a
whole new paradigm of hosting at DreamHost brought on by this Blingy
We're no longer allowing (new) FTP/SHELL users to have an email address
associated with them.
The reason for this, I'm sorry to say, is that we are planning on a LESS
centralized hosting infrastructure for the future. One with fewer "eggs"
in each "basket". And, part of this is being able to separate the
storage we use for email (which is 10% of the total size but 90% of the
access) from the storage we use for user's home directories (which is
90% of the total size but only guess what percent of the total access?).
Fortunately, this change should be more or less invisible to everybody!
The only thing lost is the ability to see and manipulate your mail files
via FTP/Shell... (and even that is only for new users from now on).
Whoop-dee-do, I say!
And for those of you who DID want to do that for some reason, I have
something for you that might appease your new-found rage:
So much to atone for,
