Problems at Excite

I’ve been chasing an intermittent and inconsistent delivery problem at Excite for a week or so. Excite is accepting email, but mail is not getting to the recipient’s inbox or bulk folder. Al tweeted he’s seeing a similar problem with his customers’ mail and had contacted Excite.

Excite does appear to be aware of the issue, but I have no ETA on a fix.

    Excite email was down 6/29/09 thru 7/15/09. Back up/running no problems past few days. But, down again since yesterday (7/27/09). WHY??

    Even at a free account Excite is not worth it, it has some serious lag timeat getting emails and not god to use to sign up for accounts unless you are not worried about getting access to that site for a few hours. I’ve waited more than six hours to get a email. Not to mention the new format that will not allow you to just delete it with out opening it…..

    Bottom line it’s JUNK….

    To prove my point, I used my old excite account to leave a reply here,

    I’ll post the time I get the email sent to post this message

  • Vague reports of Yahoo problems

    A number of people, on different forums, have been asking if anyone is seeing a higher bounce rate than usual with Yahoo. Not sure exactly what's going on here. As I understand it, folks are talking with Yahoo about it. If I hear anything more, I'll share. For now, though, if you're seeing a small increase in Yahoo bounces (or other weirdnesses) others are seeing something odd, too.No Comments

  • Responsive design just got easier at Gmail

    Today Gmail announced they are supporting media queries in Gmail and Google Inbox. This should simplify the creation of emails for multiple platforms. The full list of supported rules can be found on the Google Developer Site.No Comments

  • Brief blogging break

    Sorry about the unexpected hiatus. I picked up a cold that really made me feel fuzzy and writing was an exercise in futility. I'll be back Monday. Meanwhile, Oracle bought another ESP (Bronto) when they bought NetSuite.  No Comments
