Sympatico e-mail

Is anybody else having problems with their email?

I can't log into 1 of my 2 accounts, since yesterday afternoon, the more recent one I created. My first account, created 5 years ago, works fine.

Ah yes, I remember Sympatico - such annoyances were not uncommon.

I'm still so glad I switched to Videotron; not a single service outage since I signed up last July.

I've been getting problems with my Sympatico email account forgetting my password.

But then that's normal to me, Bell has been doing that since I joined the Internet in 1994.

for anyone using bell or rogers for their email
why not register a domain for yourself and let someone else handle your email?
will also allow you to migrate ISPs if you get a better deal and you won't have to deal with bell email servers, dns servers, etc.

bell and rogers would only be "pipe"

i found this canadian company while looking for info. for a client
they are very inexpensive and do a pretty good job

i recommend anyone having email issues with their ISP to look into these guys

http://www.netfirms.ca

domain registration $9.95 / year C$
and email/web hosting $6.95 C$ / month

a small price to pay to get off the teat of bell

My Sympatico mail has been spotty for the past couple of days. The servers have been up and down. This is the first time I've had problems with Sympatico and I've had high-speed with them since it was first offered.

I'm not panicking yet.

Just talked to Sympatico... seems the pop1 incoming mail server is down and will not be up until at least Friday... Hardware fail sometimes...

I have had so few problems with Sympatico that I assumed the problem was at my end. My 5year old daughtercrashed my mac while I was at work last night...

Now Mail 2.1 launches and acts like it was never launched. Wants me to set up all my accounts from scratch. Is that normal? I did some security updates from Apple the other day. I have all my passwords, but Mail doesn't want me to set up a second POP mail account. Keeps asking me to use .mac

Sympatico says that Mail is likely trying to check the POP server and that is why I can't set up the accounts...

Guess I'll see in a day or three...
