Hi all.  I have been experiencing a lot of problems lately accessing Slingshot's webmail and also through Outlook using IMAP or POP3 server addresses, get error message that server not found.  It's not working thru Slinghsot's website also. Is there anyone else facing similar problems?

Hi, thanks for replying, it wasn’t working yesterday night but was working before that, last I checked was around 10 pm on 07/03/07. Was it working for you last night.  I couldn’t even open my emails through their website as the webmail site wasn’t opening at all. Maybe they have fixed something and its working now, I will try it tonight.

I am using ihug's DNS address in my tcp/ip, just changed that to slingshot's dns address and webmail is opening now?? I don't understand though, why is it not opening with ihug's DNS servers and also if I leave the DNS field blank?? I am not using any firewall except Windows Firewall and everything has been working fine till now, just since last week I have been having this problems.
