I am sorry about thie blacklist issue. We are working to remove the server from AT&T's spam filter, but ultimately they need to do it. We can not change their filter.

So not only are you all on some blacklist, I have some people that have gmail accounts and Yahoo accounts, among others....that I can't send an email direct. I receive NO BOUNCE NOTICE and you all announce that everything is up and running well! Really, I mean please?

I pay for several on-line services and have since 2006. I have never came across a more incompetent group than whoever is in charge of this mess.

So what is being done about this? I can for sure send some emails to some Gmail users and not others, same at Yahoo. I need an answer. I spent untold hours working around this mess on my commercial account. I moved that email to Gmail. I left my hobby site with Homestead. That is what I am having problems with now. If this matter is not fixed Monday I will be sending Homestead a bill for time spent by myself and one employee trying to fix things.

Hi Martin, Our email admins are clearing up any outstanding blacklist issues as quickly as they can. As Drew stated, our email and servers are functioning normally. When somebody is blacklisted, they will get an undeliverable auto response. In these responses, there will be information as to what IP address is being blocked, and, what spam service is doing the blocking. As Drew stated, if you can email some people, (but not everyone), at Yahoo and Gmail, but you are not getting any undeliverable/blacklist auto responses back, then there is a different issue. The most likely scenario is that you could be blacklisted by some individual recipients. If they have spam filters on their computers and have marked your messages as spam, then they may auto-forward into a junk or spam folder on their computer, which means it's actually being delivered, and the reason you are not getting any undeliverable responses back. If you can see that the messages are sending, but getting no auto response back, then there really isn't any other information for us to troubleshoot. The only suggestion I have right now is that you might try contacting some of the people you've emailed and ask them to check and make sure they do not have you marked as spam on their systems.

The person I am emailing is me! I have set up multiple Gmail accounts and Yahoo accounts. One of the Gmail accounts gets absolutely nothing in the inbox or spam folder, same with two Yahoo accounts.

Mike F., Alum

  • 184,578 Points 100k badge 2x thumb
You might need to check with Google direct then. Once again, if you can send, and you are not getting any undeliverable responses back, there is nothing we can troubleshoot. My best guess at this time is that you are being blocked somewhere in Google system. You may have to contact Google to see why. I don't know if this is the reason, but I know Google uses a service called Postini and it could be sending your messages into spam folder, but one not located on your computer. Here's a link for more info: http://www.google.com/postini/

Hi Martin

Perhaps you can help me are any of your emails missing from your Hmail account. Mine are completely gone. I`ve gotten no response from customer service except for this

Drew - I have responded to your topic about the email. Please keep your questions confined to that thread at this point and we will get you taken care of.

Thanks

My homestead email address is still on the ATT blacklist. I am getting the same garbage as for the last month - server errors, functions taking a long time to complete, if at all. Just clicked an email to send, hourglass timer, then poof, the whole email disappeared. The problems have not been fixed.

Two separate issues. A friend snent an email and it bounced, she deleted the bounce message so I cannot send it to you. The above error message is what I received when I sent a different person an email reply to her email to me.

OK thanks, and when you got the error above, what email address were you sending from and can you tell me the date, or if you still have the message in your inbox, paste it again so that it includes the header with the time/date etc.

I am still getting the error box when I hit send. This time I clicked send error report and the page disappeared and I got a site timed out page and lost the whole letter. Now I have to sign back in with all the problems of changing from F10 to F8 in the developer tools. What a lot of time has been lost in this fiasco. Please fix these problems. It has been well over a month since I had trouble free e-mail service.

I have the same problem. Why do we need to change browser? It's clearly a Homestead issue. Getting so frustrated. If you'd just say, yes, we are working on these issues we'd all be a lot less frustrated and angry.

Hi Mary2991, there are many posts here were we have confirmed and stated over and over again that we are working on various email issues. I can not comment on your account unless you give me specific information. What kind of problem are you having? Any error messages? What email client? what browser etc. If you are having problems please give us something to work with so we can research. Thank you

Ugh. I'm sorry, i'm just so frustrated. I just tried the chat/help and didn't get anywhere either. It all started the day you switched from intuit to homestead. First, every function in my email program has slowed so much that managing my email takes 4x the time it used to. Second, I'm hearing from colleagues and clients that emails are bouncing or seem to be disappearing, in both directions. I am getting few failure notices so I don't know, as others have stated, when or if emails are getting through. It's so unreliable and has gone on unacceptably long. For 2 weeks I was forgiving and even signed a friend up with your service but this is taking way too long. I don't want to switch service as I like Intuit but Homestead is frustrating me.

Hello mary2991,

I know our company is going through a lot of change right now, but to clarify, Intuit was never really a website hosting company. They purchased Homestead a few years ago and just used the Homestead system. The transition from Intuit has not had any impact or influence on the recent email issues.

However, we do recognize our email system has had many severe issues and we continue to work on resolving them. The issues from earlier today have been solved and were related to some maintenance with the firewall. We continue to make adjustments and work on the blacklist and spam issues.

Once again you suggest I change to another system because the system I am paying you for is not working. I must do a lot more work to accommodate your shortfalls instead of homestead fixing the problems. I do not know how to change browsers and do not want to climb the learning curve when the rest of my computer works fine. I just want Homestead to work like it used to. Most companies strive to exceed expectations but here it would just be nice to return to functional.

It is still happening today. I had to hit send three times and the send error info box twice before it went out the third time, still getting spam also. In Firefox I do not get the cross-scripting window at the bottom of the page which was an IE thing.

Kathy, I have had the same problem for weeks now. It is not just your account. Errorr message when trying to send. Yesterday one of my email went poof also when I hit send after 3 or 4 server error messages. I do click "send error report" when this happens. One email account is still getting lots of spam.

We disagree completely. We understand how important email is to some businesses. When we recognized the complexity of the issue and that we were unsure of the timeline for a solution, we suggested that if email is critical to you, then it would be a good idea to switch, at least temporarily, to another provider. We care about your business, and want you to succeed.

The servers are currently operating smoothly and correctly. There are still some spam block tweaks to reduce your incoming spam and some outgoing blocks for a decreasing number of people. These are not internal systems issues, but are a result of the issues we have been experiencing. We are clearing them as possible when we are made aware of them.

Thanks

paula9245, Also, when the bounce message states "does not like recipient", that almost always means that the email address you are sending to does not exist. Check to make sure there are no typos or that the recipient didn't change or cancel that particular email address.

After the email fiasco I had been wondering how best to spend the $9 credit that you gave me for all the stress, worry and wasted time. However, my thoughts have turned once again to the poor services that Homestead has been providing of late. I note that the usual tone taken is that there is no fault with Homestead because it is their customers who are using faulty browsers or even worse mis-typing email address!

I thought you might like to know that the email service is still completely unacceptable even after a month of trying to get it right. This morning I find that it's failing again:

Message not sent; one or more addresses were not accepted.
Rejected addresses: Alan Martin &it;alan.martin7080@ntlworld.com>

Any ideas what 'I' might be doing wrong other than persisting with Homestead?

Just FYI..... I'm having the same issue. Just finished up a support chat and here is how they ended it..... "I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience. It appears that we are having issues with out bound emails today. I've notified my manager and we're now going to be working to fix the outgoing emails from our zimbra account. We're sorry for the inconvenience. I would suggest you to try to send email after sometime and contact us if problem persists."

So..... I guess.... It doesn't matter that my business depends on being able to communicate with clients. Just wait it out. Unbelievable...... I'm really tired of this. Anyone have any suggestions on taking my email and website somewhere else?

Are you still having this issue. I see that this message was posted during an outage we had early this morning.

I'm having the same issues. I can't send emails to anyone in my contact list without getting an error message

"Message not sent; one or more addresses were not accepted.
Rejected addresses"

I emailed this same person yesterday and it went through. I can't send any emails out. I keep getting the same error message.

I understand the frustration. We have had employees configure their hmail accounts in Outlook and they have been able to send. This seems to be an issue with the Zimbra client. If you have Outlook try that, if not, try Mozilla Thunderbird. You can download it for free.

Ever since homestead has had an issue with email I am getting so much spam. Please fix this or I will have to find another host, I understand things like this happen however, this is taking way to long. I will expect to see a credit also on my account thank you!

We understand your frustration and are working diligently to improve the service. The temporary outage this morning was caused by some planned maintenance to the servers, as they are still making various adjustments. We've been advised by our email admin team that there will be some continued maintenance and over the coming weeks, there will be much improvement on the amount of spam.

Thank you for posting the error message. We are forwarding these to the email admins to research and fix.

I did notice two things in this particular message that might be problems.

1. The following message typically means that the email address you are trying to send to does not exist
".InvalidRecipientException: RCPT failed: Invalid recipient"

2. Near the bottom of the error it shows "ZimbraWebClient - IE7 (Win)"

Are you really using IE v.7 ?

Version 7 is very old and no longer supported. You will want to update your browser to a recent version 9 if possible (IE10 is not compatible at this time), or try a different browser such as Firefox, or Chrome.

Drew N removed our post because we expressed our opinion of this being crap as it was offensive. Here is what I find offensive,

We are told that due to spam filters all these problems occured (I get more spam today then I ever did before.

We are not notified of your issues when we pay a top tier fee for a mediocre service

We are told all has been fixed and yet here we are again not able to send emails and getting error messages

And this one takes the cream of it all, we send emails that never arrive to either my gmail or yahoo accounts (no error message) and are told that it is there issue. Why is it then that we are able to email from yahoo to gmail and vise versa but not from zimbra???

Yes. The email admins were performing some scheduled maintenance on the firewall. We continue to work on the spam issues and overall performance. There will likely be more scheduled maintenance in the coming weeks, and will do our best to notify everyone.

We have not been receiving our emails and have issue with sending them out as usual. This is not fixed and switching browsers etc. is not the issue! We are not receiving emails, notification of orders etc. and I sent a test email that still has not come thru. I was planning on calling for a big credit from all the business lost and absolute headache this has been, but then I see someone says they got a whooping $9 credit?? Are you kidding me?
There is no telling how many customers have written with questions, change of address, concerns etc. that we have not received. We pride ourselves on EXCELLENT customer service and they won't even get a response from us. I expect FULL compensation and I can assure you a measly $9 is not going to cut it. You have cost us all an immeasurable amount of time and lost business that we'll never get back.

John0701, and Martin,

As I have stated in numerous threads (see above). We have to handle all credits and refunds one at a time. You are welcome to call us to discuss your situation as many customers have been impacted differently, (or not at all). You are welcome to call us at the number shown above.

Mike what you have to realise is that these good people will contact your customer services and be very disappointed. The person I spoke to had no interest at all in dealing with the issue of compensation. In fact he kept saying that everything was alright now and that he was very very sorry.

In the end he said I could have one month's email costs returned but that there was nothing more that he could do except say how sorry he was.

It is not just a question of refunding how much we pay for your services. Surely you have to attempt to assess the level of damage that has been done to our reputations. I have just spent this afternoon telephoning clients to see what emails they have and have not received. I can assure you that $9 does not scratch the surface.

What really hurts a business like mine is the inability to communicate with customers (both existing and potential).

Your service has been so poor and I am afraid that is unforgivable.

I am directly involved with our telephone agents and management team. I can not comment on the specifics of the situation you mention, but I do know that our management team has a solid record of making fair (and reasonable) decisions when compensating customers. If you have a personal issue you need to discuss, give us a call and speak with a manager.

Mike,
I've been following this issue now for many weeks and had JUST begun to semi-trust using my corporations email accounts again. Customers are now calling us today asking why we have not responded to their emails from yesterday. They know we respond quickly! I can confirm 32 emails that have not been received from as least yesterday. Mike, how are we expected to run businesses and trust a company we are paying? My trust is gone again and I can not afford to continue letting Homestead run my reputation into the ground, but again, switching will take a lot of employee time that I need to have spent on making money for the corporation, not fixing your companies problems. Those in my company that use their email from the web are still getting error boxes. I do not because I use Outlook. So now, we are back to what started all of this long long ago. We are not receiving customer emails. What is going on now????????
WHERE are my lost emails that are NOT coming into our accounts? Its been 24-36 hours for most of them.

Hi Donna, I understand your frustration as I also own an online business and do understand the impact these outages can have.

With regard to your lost emails, we unfortunately don't have any way to track those down, or tell how many emails you lost. This most recent instance which occurred this morning had no effect on receiving emails. It was a firewall issue only affecting the outgoing server. Other than some outstanding blacklist problems, sending and receiving has been working fine for several days now. And the blacklist issues do not cause you to miss emails (unless the sender is blacklisted).

I can not comment on any action our management team takes, but I assure you they are taking this very seriously. In the end, we want you to do what is best for your business. We of course do not want to lose anyone's business, but if you decide you need to utilize another company we understand and respect that decision.

As an employee, I have a birds eye view and can see all the changes that will be coming in future weeks and months. I am extremely confident that the coming changes will be well accepted by our customers, but at the same time, drastic change will come with a few hiccups along the way.

It has?!?!? I'll hold off further comment, I need to go for a walk... I'll comment when I get back... that quote just cracks me up...
