Mailbox manager problem


#1

Hi there,

I’ve just signed up with dreamhost (a few days ago) and am struggling to get anything working. My email has now been down for a couple of days and I’m losing work rapidly!

My current problem is that when I try to access the ‘mailbox manager’ I get a ‘server not found’ error page.

I know this seems rather vague, but I can fill in any relevant informatio as and when necessary. Can anyone help me??

Matt

ps I’ve not been able to get the website running either. I have managed to connect thru ftp with filezilla but even if I merely try to put a simple ‘hello’ index.html I get the same ‘server not found’ error when I try to visit it online. . .
Help!
Losing work!
Thanks

Okay, I’m an idiot. I am thinking all my problems have been based in me not ‘reading the instructions’ properly - I’d changed my dns1.blah.blah to dns1.dreamhost.com and not ns.dreamhost.com.

Silly, silly me!

Hopefully the next 24 hours will let me know if my daft mistake had caused all these problems.

Thanks for watching anyhow!
Matt

hopefully you used ns1.dreamhost.com ns2.dreamhost.com and ns3.dreamhost.com the second time around and not ns.dreamhost.com :wink:
