The URL to learn about spam/ham never loads for me in either Firfox or IE6

It was starting to look pretty good, but having the entire website apparently down for hours on end in the first few days of use hasn't been an encouraging development.

we should encourage this guy. This guy looks promising. Give every one a chance. As everyone told the IMAP/SMTP is working even though website is down.

I agree, in a way, until more is learned. The site isn't accessible for me at 9:38 P.M. Eastern. Anyway, FastMail users should feel right at home!

I agree. But down time isn't ever exactly encouraging with any service, is it? It wasn't intended as a condemnation. I was just stating the facts.

Hi All,

Sorry about the delay.
PUBBOX is so busy doing MTA things, that it does not look on its own website

HTTP is now online.

I had no idea my httpd could go mad...
...up to now it was doing it's job for almost a year without restarting
the process.

Maybe it has to replaced, which would be sad. I liked it. (Caudium)
It has strong content driven capabilites...beating them all (Except Roxen Challenger, its father.)
In the meantime i'll keep an Eye on it, maybe sending an alarm to support via email/sms. (MTA works always ;-)

But before making premature decisions log files have to be analyzed, some tests done.

As some of you said, and i am thankful they did so:

- Only http was affected.
- Email traffic itself is never going down. Even in case of a disc crash, der is another MX waiting for emails.

-> SMTP/IMAP are rocksolid.

PUBBOX, thanks for letting us know.
It's good to know we can count on the IMAP/SMTP.

I'm starting to wonder if you ever sleep it must be 4:30AM there.

It's 5:30 AM now, bed is awaitening me.
Office hours will not start before 12:00 PM today

httpd is now monitored -> support gets informed in a matter of minutes.

Story last night:

18:00 CET - httpd freeze
22:00 CET - Leaving office going to the pub, after checking
emails, having no indication of any problem
03:30 CET - returned from pub. checked emails again
-> PUBBOX down message on this forum
03:35 CET - httpd process killed with SIGKILL (-9), and started
a new one.
05:00 CET - monitoring function implemented

For writing reports and stuff, Thanks go to: sarathb, ReuvenNY, xmailer, Pacdoc, Berenburger, rmns2bseen, nbarr

enjoy,
Armin

I am still unable to send using Authenticated SMTP SSL Port 465 (a configuration that works on other accounts). I'm on Mail.app, MacOS 10.

Can anyone please make a suggestion...

Thanks in advance!

I could care less about the webmail myself.
As long as imap and smtp are working I'm a happy camper.
I am also unable to use ssl with port 465 although Tls with 25 is working well for me.

I'm thinking Pubbox will be a keeper. Armin seems to know his stuff and he is quick to rectify problems.

Right now i have no idea, why some users have problems with SSL on port 465. Others (including myself) can use it happily.

Take a look at http://pubbox.net/ssl/

Maybe it's just a certificate thing.

btw.: port 24 ("any private mail system") has now been enabled,
for users who get standard port 25 blocked by their ISP.
SMTP is spoken here. TLS/SSL on demand, too.

and....
Some pages have colors changed, more like the style of this forum now

Thanks for this service, first appearance is really very good (even though I rely on webmail almost exclusively...).

Will definately try to train the Bogofilter this week-end! :-)

Helge.

Right now, i have identified our first Spammer on PUBBOX.
He (or she) feeds the filter with Spam declaring them as Ham. Bumped into my eye on the second counter check. (First one looked good, all Ham was Ham). Lots of my known Spam messages were declard Ham by his training...

...pointless, by i won't tell him
