I’m currently using another host for my website and just lost a week’s worth of email because they were “upgrading” their servers. They have not apologised and apparently they don’t back up the email anywhere after it’s forwarded (even when it’s forwarded off into nowhere!). It’s really rather appalling, isn’t it? Going a week without email (for my business) is bad enough, but not even being able to get that email ever is really just inexcusable, in this day and age.
So, my question is, if I switch to Dreamhost, will my email be safely backed up, in case the forwarding bit of software gets wonky?
