Hopefully email through our system will not be impacted, but it may be that it gets delayed a short period. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Today we had some issues with our login server. It is likely that you will need to request a new password. Passwords are encrypted on the server so we do not know what they are (and the reason you normally need a new password should you forget it). There was an attack on the website trying to break into the system through the New Password function. This caused an issue where user entries with no email caused an issue with the password table. Unfrotunately the easiest and safest way was to remove all passwords. Sorry for the inconvenience.

When you have mail through our server you need to set up with secure settings. We prefer that you use the IMAP settings to allow secure sending and receiving of emails. Important Note : start February 2024 Google and other Mail providers are tightening up their mail system where uers are sending out emails. They are trying to cut down on the amount of spam and scam messages. They are looking to Authenticate outgoing email, avoid sending unwanted or unsolicited email, and make it easy for recipients to unsubscribe. We would say that at least 50% of domains do not have their email security tight enough and are open to abuse. Many mail providers use these feature right now, so ensure your mail server is setup correctly. Ensure your domain mail settings are up to date: -- Set up SPF and DKIM email authentication -- have a valid PTR for valid forward and reverse DNS records, -- ensure that the DMARC quarantine enforcement policy is enabled and set to Quarantine SPF, DKIM and DMARC are the key issues ! All our domains have these tightened up. If you need help and guidance please get in touch with 2MX.
