I telnetted into the server and I have 124 emails. Not all are new as I told the server to keep emails for 30 days but probably at least half of them are new ones that I have not seen. I'd sure like to be able to get them in an email client, Sea Monkey, Opera or Outlook Express. dslrmail was my most active account.

I switched from port 995 to 110 and switched SM mail to "password transmitted insecurely" when secure didn't work. But nothing works!

OE that I use the most has a convoluted connection and I am not seeing the security exception box I have to click on each time (twice) to get dslr mail so it is really messed up but SM mail should work correctly with or without SSL and either 995 or 110 port but it doesn't fetch the mail either.

Obviously, my password is not a problem since I successfully telnetted into the server just now. But what is the problem? I can see with the convoluted setup on OE (because of no SSL there) that it could have a problem but why SeaMonkey?

Grrr...how come these forums work for posting but the front page articles are not allowing posting? I want to reply to Karl's latest article. Is it just me? Can any of you reply to the front page articles?

Yeah well someone has sucked bandwidth from Ouray as my speeds have been really low for the last 5 days or so Sent proof etc to CenturyLink an hour ago but I'm sure it went straight into the bit-bucket

Aha! Maybe that is why the command to retrieve one of them got me Nil's nice (but a little smart assy ) retort "Are you sure you know how to use this thing"? I was puzzled as I should have been able to retrieve it easily...so I bet you are right and there was nothing there to retrieve hence the retort. I got in really fast too. I have telnetted in quite a few times over the years and never very quickly and using the "list" command usually was slow but this time I was in instantly and the list of emails were retrieved instantly...yeah...I bet that it is from 2010 and there is nothing really there.

So, has anyone actually gotten dslr mail dated since the shutdown?

You have dslr mail as your email address for when you signed up here? How did you do that? Or, I guess you changed your email address in your profile here after you signed up and got dslr mail?

I guess if you have dslr mail as your email address in your profile here and you got a reset email in it that would HALFWAY count. It would show that dslr mail is working for NEW mail since Justin opened the site up but would not tell us if mail accumulated during the shutdown can be accessed. I'm going to send myself an email to my dslr account now and then tomorrow (must get some sleep now) see if SeaMonkey can download it.

Outgoing mail from DSLR is working.

Can't confirm that incoming mail works for anything but spam.

EDIT: Incoming mail takes at least 10 minutes to go through.

Using Thunderbird, ports 26 and 110, no SSL.

Considering this whole thing was pretty much a major disaster, and for a time there I was wondering if the only data retrieved would be the "Broadband/DSLReports" logo, I think we're very fortunate to even be posting here at all.
So for those wondering why this and that isn't working, we must remember to be patient as far as still missing url''s, features, etc, BBR-san's.

I saw it but I was typing so I posted before reading your PM. That won't help me anyway. I don't communicate with Gmail users and I mean no offense to any Gmail users but I refuse to allow Gmail to read my mail and profile me. I do everything possible to stop Google from profiling me and much as I want dslr mail to work again, I don't want it badly enough to allow Google information about me. I'll have to work out whatever the problem is here either in the inactive dslrmail forum or bugs forum. I have a big bunch of various newsletters especially my Dell ones that I would like to get. I am about to buy a new computer and Dell may have sent a good offer that I don't see because it comes to dslr mail.

On a side note, it was really brought home to me these past two weeks how this is the only forum anywhere that really educates its readers on what is happening not only with internet privacy but privacy in general in the USA and the rest of the world. I better understand now why so many folks are so oblivious to what is happening to privacy, hence freedom and liberty, since this is the only place where there is a broad consolidation of information and concern about these issues. There are individual sites on the net concerned with privacy, etc but only here is it all brought together by the efforts of the fine members of this forum. KUDOS to all who post here!

I understand. In my case much of my family uses Gmail so Google gets to read/archive my correspondence with them anyway They're not computer/internet savvy and that's what they were setup with (not by me).

BTW it was suggested, by that Gmail user, that I sign up with them My reply was "hell no!".

I agree. I was very worried that dslr would never be back...I mean most owners confronted with a $8,000-$18,000 bill for recovery would have thrown in the towel. I found myself seriously wondering if I even wanted to buy a new computer because without this site I just about stopped using the internet the past two weeks...so why would I need a new computer if dslr died forever?

So, please don't anyone take my comments as crticism. I'm just thinking out loud and trying to see what works currently and what doesn't, etc. It is ironic, for instance, that I really want to post in one of the front page articles now as generally I don't post in them or even read all of them. I am very grateful that the site is back at all so please don't take my remarks in the wrong way.

There are stronger security sites out there. I was reacquainted with some when this site was down.

As for email you really need a better solution. If you really need a coupon from Dell use real email provider or set up your own.
If your security and privacy are that great then losing one coupon is a no brainer. Only you can balance your reward and risk.

So far by using a choice you would not make I have not missed any emails and do not have to pay anyone or setup my own server for email using my own domains. Maybe my privacy has been compromised some but I just pretend email is a postcard anyways. I really do not care if someone knows I like Dell coupons. Heck you just posted here you like Dell coupons.

Great to see that the site is back in some way, shape, and form. As of right now, none of my recent posts are on the site. My posts start in 2010! That's ancient!

Believe you me, Mele20 See Profile, I was thinking the same thing... that is about the money. I was projecting costs upwards of $25,000! That's what people call a fuckton of cash!

If faced with something like this, unless I was rich and I didn't care about money and threw it about like I just didn't care, I'd have shut the site down and threw the towel in.

Though, I do see massive requests for donations in the near future on this web site. We may all be asked to donate $25 or more to help recoup the costs of bringing the data back.

As for NAC, the data center that this site's servers are in... they need to dump them like a bad habit! This isn't the first time that a data center wide power outage happened. IMO, this is embarrassing for NAC. A world class data center absolutely should not EVER have a massive power outage like this. This is simply unacceptable!

I know that there have been data centers that haven't had power outages in over three years! That's outstanding and a model that all data centers should strive to live up to.

Oh, for sure. I've got a huge folder of bookmarks for them.
And I'm also sure everyone here is aware of that. And I, (and no doubt many others), visited some of them while this site was down).
And I obviously can't speak for everyone, but for me at least, this is my favorite "hangout", and the one I always come back to every day, with a little bit of everything all rolled up in one. (Well, it was, and will be again I'm sure).
I'm extremely happy this site is back up, even with limited functionality.

Works for me.

I've been a member for almost 12 years and have been a Premium member for about a decade. For me $25 isn't a high price to pay for continued operation of this site.

EEk! I saw your twitter links in the Wilders Security forum dslr thread but I have Twitter blocked in my hosts file. It is not as bad as Facebook but still....I don't want to open myself up to the Twitter buttons on every website now...

So, I sought other places to talk about dslr and we did have a thread going at grc.com newsgroups. I filled my time with posting in Mozilla newsgroups...much to a few folks consternation I think when I got upset about Fx 10 Enterprise SNEAKILY RESETTING MY chosen settings so that it could try and update without my consent a few days ago! I learned some unwanted things about Fx from those newsgroups while I was trying to find something of interest when this site was down. No wonder IE is really gaining in market share now and Fx is going lower and lower. Sad. But SM is not following Fx in the controversial things.

I also followed the comments at a popular forum for webhosting and some bloggers who were talking about dslreports but most didn't seem to have any real idea about this site, Justin, or what happened, etc. Maybe Twitter had more reliable information.
