This was Dreamhost’s response to me:
“PHPmail is working normally but we have hourly limits to reduce the
amount of spam from our network. There is a 100 email per hour limit, any
emails beyond this limit will be blocked. Almost all webhosting companies
have similar limits in place as well.”
Do they mean I can’t receive more than 100 emails per hour? Because I receive MAYBE one or two. Or do they mean out of ALL of their customers only 100 emails can be processed? Either way, they don’t claim any responsibility despite the fact that all worked well yesterday and this seems to coincide with the constant issues they’ve had today.
The emergency status page is worthless because they don’t bother to update it. As for the blog, maybe they should spend less time partying and more time focusing on their customers.
