It really is a nightmare not having working email during the day - yes I can catch up in the evening, but I spend half my life on email during the day and it is mad without it.
Hopefully we'll get to the bottom of the crazy issues we are seeing with email being so slow shortly. I can really understand the frustration caused to customers as we use exactly the same system.
I mean, what the hell are you meant to do when you plug a server in to a switch and just see loads of packet loss? Changing cable, switch, server, ports, not helping. In the end we put it in to a different make of switch to get it to play. And all this was moving cables to reduce number of switches involved in the NFS disk server LAN. And after all that it did not help!
Yah! I have email now!!
