SMTP on Server 4?





ChrisCh
Hi there. Just wondering if anyone knows how long SMTP will be down for on Server 4... I use the "mail" feature in PHP to send some completed forms, auto-confirmation emails etc etc, and was also wondering whether any such messages generated during this outage will be queued, or simply discarded?

Many thanks Smile

We've had a spammer on Server 4 yesterday, unfortunately, so there might be some problems with the mail. I don't think you'll have many problems with sending emails, other than delays.

I'm sorry for the problems. It usually doesn't happen that a user who posts a few decent messages abuses our services this way.

No worries Smile I tested my PHP scripts in the meantime, and the emails generated by them were still being sent (and received to my Frihost email accounts) successfully, so I'm glad I didn't lose any messages. It turned out to only be a minor inconvenience really - I just had to save one manual email to the Drafts folder in Roundcube, which I can now send. Very Happy

Cheers for fixing the problem and seemingly getting rid of the spammer - making the server more reliable in the long run Very Happy
