Email Forward Set up time?

On top of Dreamhost’s servers going whacky and mess up all the permissions two days ago. The setting up to forward to another email address in the account panel seems to be taking forever to start working.

I added a forwarding address at 6AM EST. it is now 10AM EST. i understand it may take 1-2 hours…umm…it has been 4 hours? it has never taken this long. WHY WHY WHY?

I have been a long time customer of Dreamhost and referred many clients to use Dreamhost as well. However, all the problems Dreamhost has been experiencing this past few months is becoming very annoying.

Should I be looking for an alternative and take my clients with me?
