First off, I understand Dreamhost doesn’t recommend using Squirrelmail as your main email client because it taxes the servers. From what I’ve been told by support they cut server resources to it as soon as the server load gets too high.
My problem is it is often so slow during the middle of the day it can’t even be used as an occasional backup when I am away from my desk and need to check my messages. I mean why even offer it if it is going to take 30 seconds to load a page? Between this issue and the outgoing mail problem that has been dragging on I think I might have to shop for a new host yet again, which sucks.
When there were about 100 users on my server (the first week I signed up), it was fine, but now there are 722 users and webmail has been rendered somewhat useless. I can appreciate the fact you want to keep the web snappy, but email is just as important.
Dallas, you are occasionally on this board, any thoughts?
