Does anybody else have this problem?
Day 1: I log into webmail2.dreamhost.com and see bunch of spam messages caught by Spam Assassin. Good!
Day 2: About two or three new spam messages. That’s odd, I normally get about 50 a day.
Day 3: No new trapped spam messages. WTF?
Day 4: After logging into webmail2.dreamhost.com, the main index page doesn’t display. The page just keeps loading forever. Regular IMAP and webmail through my domain name works fine (webmail.mydomainname.com) - some messages that arrive are delayed by up to three hours at dreamhost - there’s a time gap in the header Received lines to prove it.
Day 5: Back to normal. I can log in again. Got 175 new spam messages, a couple of false positives, but otherwise good. Trash 'em.
Repeat Day 1, etc. The times between events are approximate. I think it’s on a cycle of a little less than a week.
This has gone on three times now. It’s almost as though the server has a hard time keeping up with all the spam and gets bogged down until someone from DH ‘fixes’ it and a flood of blacklogged spam messages are released.
Anyone else experiencing delays like this?
