Is outgoing mail server dead?

anyone else having problems sending mail? (this has nothing to do with my ISP blocking any ports)

all day the only way i have been able to send mail is to use my ISPs outgoing mail server. when i try to use mail.mydomain.com i get error messages that say “450 server config problem” with outlook and “The server response was: Server configuration problem” with apple mail.

this is what the support page says:

4 mins 24 secs ago: Outage resolved: We believe the issue to be resolved.
3 hours 59 mins ago: Outage verified: We are actively looking into resolving it.
4 hours 5 mins ago: Outage first reported.

that’s bunk because it’s still not working… over 4 hours of downtime? seriously, this is getting out of hand.

anyone else not able to send mail?

Yes, it’s still broken.

They have an original posting on their status blog (http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/) but no updates (as of this writing). These week in and week out problems are getting to be VERY annoying. I hope they get this crap fixed once and for all.

the status blog says it’s fixed, but it’s still broken here.

still broken here as well. :-/
