When I opened my Outlook this morning, mediacom started downloading 900+ emails, all of which went into my unread mail folder. They were duplicates of past emails. And I am not receiving my regular email since last night. Wonder where those emails are now? Do I need to configure something in Outlook to adjust for this new mediacom email system?

I'm wondering if the change affected mail too... I can't send messages using Thunderbird.

Get the message: connecting to smtp server failed, etc, etc.

I can't even get to the webmail server at the moment. So I presume it is all still being worked on. Give them time.

Not even 9am and the moderator is at work already?
And I got 3 duplicate emails this morning, as mediacom must have overlapped the 2 mail servers last night.

thats an "automatic" held by system, i.e. it was either an anon poster that posted a url or something else that triggerd the system.

looks just like outlook, now if we could just change the colors of things it would be great.

and yeah i have duplicate emails from about the last 3 days.

Looks like you should be able to login on this page, but the description is wrong as you'll need your emai address in the top line, and not your username. The webpage below is what appears after you logout, but you can re-login there.

»mail.mchsi.com/zimbra/?loginOp=logout

i want to know how i can set it up so i can see all my mchsi.com accounts thru the webmail like i could before without having to log out and back into seperate accounts.

oh and knowing the new servers to fix my mail client at home would be nice too.

I have a few duplicate emails from the last few days showing in the web mail program. I can send from Mediacom web mail successfully but I have not received new emails that were just sent, i.e. work email to mchsi email.

Same here. It's been 15 min since I sent an email from work to .mchsi.com.....and it still hasn't showed up. Clicking on "inbox" and "get mail" doesn't do it either.

It's starting to remind me of "the good old days" with @home. Persistent e-mail issues were pretty standard back then.

Oops, edited post to mention that a test message sent to myself via the new webmail came into Thunderbird about 5 minutes later. This shows me that Thunderbird is likely connecting to the servers, but it still won't send a message.

The commcenter.mchsi.com address just "fails" in Foxfie with a message about a bad certificate, etc., and does not redirect you anywhere or give you new instructions. Hopefully they will fix that, as the e-mails set out as announcements so far hadn't given any new URLs to use.

Interesting that all the years they have had email at the U of Iowa, we've never had a problem like that. Any big maint/upgrades they have done here over the years were done AT NIGHT ON WEEKENDS......not weekdays.

as I have received a few (2?) 'pop' e-mails, wonder if we can assume the settings remain the same?

Hopefully Mediacom is/was smart enough to be queing up all of the email that's trying to flow into their new untested mail server/s.

I just received a bounce back at work. I had sent a message to my MCHSI account as a test...didn't ever come through. Just received an "Undeliverable" message. My exchange server has stopped trying to send.

Great...

It's still down. Can't send or recieve.

Just the type of service you want just B4 the holiday season, when your looking for order conformation & shipping emails.

Holy cow, this sucks. They were notifying us way in advance so it was no surprise to their guys (or gals) and they should have been ready for trouble. This sucks, I have been through many upgrades through other systems, the duplicate e-mail is normal, but not having any e-mail for what, 12 hours now, is not normal. Come on mediacom, get it together for us.

I have sent email to my office from the new on-line email software and the email came through right away. I just cannot receive anything...and it appears that e-mails are being bounced back to the sender as "Undeliverable".

Great....just great.....

The bounce back must be new since noon (central time). I tested my home account by sending from my work account at about noon, and I got no bounce back.
