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,

  • AOL compromise

    Lots of reports today of a security problem at AOL where accounts are sending spam, or are being spoofed in spam runs or something. Details are hazy, but there seems to be quite a bit of noise surrounding this incident. AOL hasn't provided any information as of yet as to what is going on.4 Comments

  • AOL problems

    Lots of people are reporting ongoing (RTR:GE) messages from AOL today.  This indicates the AOL mail servers are having problems and can't accept mail. This has nothing to do with spam, filtering or malicious email. This is simply their servers aren't functioning as well as they should be and so AOL can't accept all the mail thrown at them. These types of blocks resolve themselves. 1 Comment
