Nothing scheduled, nothing reported by other network vendors, nothing we are aware of and no other reports of issues that I can see.

Please log a ticket through your support channel and we will look into it - I can't see you have done so so far?

It was definitely down around 11pm till about 1am, as I had a client who contacted me about it to. I will submit a ticket, but I haven't had any reply to my other ticket sent 2 weeks ago .

The only ticket ever submitted using your account email address appears to be the one just submitted re last night. I'll ned either the email address any other ticket(s) have been submitted against or their number(s).

There are only 4 tickets in the hosting queue at the moment....average wait time on the phones is 44secs....

Thanks. I will PM you the ticket number. There is something wrong with your ticketing system if it isn't an active ticket, because I also followed it up on friday last week to say I hadn't had a reply. It was initially sent on the 1st April, I got a reply that same day, with a question which I answered, and since then nothing.

Ah-ha! Issue traced to Telecom planned work but they used a permit number relating to a Chorus outage in the Waikato so the notifications didn't how up correctly. That little gem is with the Telecom and Chorus SDMs to explain....

That is an old ticket, initially opened on 21/2 as an issue with death2spam which was resolved, then reopened on 5/3 to address the email receipt issues you were having, then reopened again on 18/3 to address a different email receiving issue, examples were requested but not supplied, re-requested on 1/4, 2 examples provided of which 1 turned up with a 1hr delay. Current situation is still the same:

"Provided the services are advising valid PTR's and HELO commands then there shouldn't be an issue.

Taking the above as granted we would need a copy of a bounceback message including headers to investigate further.
If this is not possible then we would like to request the sending address as well as time and date so that we can check the logs of the mail server to investigate."

This is ready to go back to our T3 engineers (where it has been waiting for the requested examples - apologies if that wasn't communicated), but we will need more than 1 example with the details requested is required:

Mail From:
Mail To:
Date:
Time:
Subject:

To make best use of our ticket system I'd suggest:

Log a NEW ticket for new issues
Log it from the email address linked to your account
Provide specific examples, especially of emails where we may need to search mail server logs (which you can probably appreciate are sizeable)

Thanks I did get a reply to both those problems and an apoligy for the 2 week delay to my email and follow reminder on friday.

There is currently a problem as the iserve network again tonight, as all websites and email looks to be down.

Thanks, I see you have now added it to the status page, as I did first check there and there wasn't an announcement, otherwise I wouldn't have posted.

As there have been a few outages around this time over the last few weeks can you please update us as to what's going on and a schedule of fixes so we can set our client's expectations.

Thanks
