Many of you you may have been caught by being locked out of the server through excessive email polling. This may block your IP from the server.
Many of you you may have been caught by being locked out of the server through excessive email polling.
This applies to people who feel the need or are unaware that their email client is checking for emails for than 60 times in one hour.
The server recognises that there are times you are waiting on an important email so it will log the time period.
If you keep doing this after a four hour period then you will be blocked by the firewall.
Polling or checking emails more than 60 times places an unnecessary load on the server which if left unchecked will disadvantage other people.
Tracking email problems can be time consuming. If you think you are having problems we suggest you take the following steps. Establish that your site can be seen by our server by simply typing your website name into a browser. If you can not see your site, then the chances are you have been blocked by our firewall. First establish that it is not your ISP (Internet Service Provider) - people you connect to the web with.

One quick fix is to unplug your router which will assign you a new IP (this will not work if you have a static IP)
