Fastmail no longer support this forum, so perhaps this section should be closed

Disagree.

FastMail is part of this forum (God and Edwin willing) whether they like it or not, and their service is still live and kicking.

Google has never supported their forum here at EMD. Edwin (owner of EMD) doesnít visit any more. That doesnít make these forums unimportant. If you donít think they are useful just donít read them.

As far as FastMail is concerned, the founders posted here often when their company was very small. They are much larger today and this forum is not the proper location for them to provide customer support. They have a staff dedicated to resolving customer support tickets. The CEO of FastMail (Bron Gondwana) has made a number of posts this year, and the latest was two months ago.

If you look at their leadership team at https://www.fastmail.com/about/company.html, you will find that half of that team (4 out of 8) have each made over 1,000 posts to EMD. Rob Mueller has made over 6,000 posts. But these are company leaders who donít now have the time or inclination to spend time here. Do you expect the leaders of Google or Yahoo to spend time on this forum? Fastmail isnít that large, but they have grown far too large to rely on this forum. That doesnít make the forum obsolete. If Edwin followed your suggestion I guess he could delete all posts older than a few months in all sub forums, since they are ďout of dateĒ.

Message boards like EMD are not very popular. I doubt a single friend, work colleague, or family member of mine has ever read a post here. Itís a left-over from 1980ís message boards.

Many years ago Edwin was banned from posting in his own forum by Fastmail. Just ask him, so that is the reason he does not post any more.

You mentioned Robs 6000 posts but how many for 2017? 5 or 6.

Anyway its no good going on about it as we cant make them contribute.

It was way back, Edwin commented on a post and Rob then quite firmly told Edwin that he should not participate in the Fastmail forum.

But its old news we are now in 2018
