I honestly feel like pulling my hair out ,the past few months Dreamhost email has gotten worse… and worse… and worse.
It’s now at the point where my ability to receive and send emails is down about 40% of the entire day, on and off intermittent.
This is with pop3, though I understand people have been having same problems with IMAP too, this is both with my desktop email client as well as trying to access via webmail.xxxx.com in the browser.
I have raised several tickets about this, first times they said there would be hardware changes to fix the problem, well they changed hardware, and the problems got WORSE.
The last response I got from Dreamhost support was very apologetic.
"I’m terribly sorry for the delay with my response and the reoccurring
issues with our mail service over the past few months… Yes, you are
correct about the problems being unacceptable and have our mail service
on top priority at this time. "
That was back on the first of February, saying there are still upgrading mail clusters.
I don’t want apologies anymore, I want an email service that actually works, hell I’d settle for half works!.
I saw in the dreamhost status update page that they’re currently doing fixes to homemail-sub4 that they already did to sub5, I’m on sub3, I really hope thats fixed next and soon!.
Honestly I’m… i’m trying to think of reasons to stay with Dreamhost and the reasons are hanging on by a thread, really feel like taking all my domains and business elsewhere.
Dreamhost used to be soo rock solid, then about couple years ago started experiencing the odd downtime here and then, and then last year the email problems started, culminating in today when half the time I go to check my email, the email is down.
