I have a shared hosting account with Hostgator. A company that you cannot avoid if you are trawling the net looking for a service provider. But my relationship with them has not been a happy one and it is getting to the stage where they are making it worth my while to move. I use email aliases to collect whatever mail I get from my workshop sites. I set up forwarders to direct mail from the Hostgator server to a centralised address I use to receive this mail.
But the mail from the Hostgator accounts is no longer being forwarded and my suspicion is that the server has been blacklisted and temporarily blocked. Fair enough. But what irritates me is the response I get from their Help Desk suggesting that I need to change what I am doing. They don't bother to explain what the problem is. They duck and dive and this is a problem you have when using these sort "everymans" don't expect too much from them hosting companies.
