I am not sure I understand your suggestion, what do you mean “same text appended to a file in your home directory so you can double check”. 24 hours. You know, I could live with that, but my suspicion is that mine might have been broken for the past few weeks. My last email was Feb 24th. Nothing since. I usually get at least one a day. Then a client notified me. I need some kind of failure notification. Any suggestions are welcome!
So DreamHost responded after my third support ticket.
They said there was an configuration error with my VPS, now it’s fixed.
God knows how long I’ve not been getting email now from prospective clients.
