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,

  • Blogging

    It's been a wild week here in the US. I have to admit, the current political climate is affecting my ability to blog about email. I've always said email is not life or death. And how can I focus on the minutia of deliverability when things are in such turmoil and uncertainty? There are many things I want to write about, including some resources for those of us who are struggling with the current administration and changes in the US. What we can do. What we must do.  It just takes work and focus I don't have right now.    1 Comment
