    If you are using a vodamail account

    If you are using a vodamail account for your member profile on TFSA, I have a suggestion to make sure your email messages get through to you - get an email address at another service providor (such as gmail).

    I'm getting quite a few bounces on vodamail accounts from active members who have not had problems previously. Here's the crux of the error message:
    Recipient address rejected: User
    unknown in local recipient table (in reply to RCPT TO command)
    Clearly vodamail is experiencing technical problems.

    What particularly concerns me is looking at the accounts involved, I see quite a few involve your company's name. It doesn't take much of a leap to think you might be relying on this email service for business - and by the looks of things, your mail might not be arriving as reliably as one might hope.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Update - I've decided to try to ride the bounces for another day to see what happens. There is a possibility vodamail has sorted out their problem.

    A very good idea in any case !

    Set up the account so that it looks at your normal email account/s and forward all these to Gmail.
    Can save you a lot of trouble later and can be accessed from anywhere without you having to do an account setup on a distant PC.

    I don't know this is limited to Vodamail. In the last week or so i have had 3 people tell me they sent emails but won't go thru on our own domain.

    I have had emails bounce to another private domain.. ferrari.co.za (no not buying.... damn... but client)

    Probably coincidence but have never had it before.

    Webmail having problems too?

    On the subject of email service problems, I couldn't help but notice this story:
    Webmail account holders have been warned. Someone may have access to your confidential emails and Webmail doesn't seem to know how to correct the problem.

    "Since yesterday I have been receiving other users' private emails [inbox and sent] items. I have received over a 500 mails from different users," Glacier Bambisa told the Mail & Guardian on Tuesday.

    "I have contacted Webmail to see if they are aware of the privacy concerns of other users. They say they have had a few similar incidents but they do not know how to resolve it," Bambisa told the M&G.
    full story from M&G here
    The secuity consequences are mind-boggling

    EDIT: and checking this morning's logs, it seems Vodamail has sorted out their problems.
