OK, It's been a long year. I've generally been happy with Dreamhost's performance, in spite of the problems of the last 6 months: whole domain outages; status updates not viewable (remember the DDoS attack?). Anyway, the changes made to mail yesterday may have been the last straw.
First: mail was not broken and did not need "fixing".
Second: It would appear that the changes had not been tested.
Third: The changes so screwed up my mapping of aliases to mailboxes that I've had to delete aliases and mailboxes just to get rid of the clutter to find out what's left.
My suggestion is to restore mail to what it had been before the changes.
If some dumsh*t MSIE using cretins can't figure out how to map an alias to a mailbox, then teach 'em. Don't f*ck with something that already works.
Anybody know a good hosting provider that does not break things as bad as Dreamhost seems to, ... but with a good track record of anti-spam and staying out of DNSBls?
Methinks I've had it.
