Report: There are once again problems with the PIPEX mail service.

Symptoms: Connection to mailboxes may be intermittent or not possible. Depending on the email program in use, this may prevent mail being sent, though the sending servers are unaffected.

Actions: Engineers are once again travelling to site to attend to the affected machine. However, it is likely that the system will be offline for some time during Sunday, and that it will need to be taken down for further maintenance in the very near future.

PIPEX sincerely apologies for this problem and the inconvenience it is causing. We are working hard to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.

Thanks for that, TOPCAT.

I've had the occasional glitch picking up e-mail from Pipex, but usually find that a second attempt shortly afterwards succeeds.

Pipex is a high quality ISP - one of the best in the UK - and will soon sort its problems out.

Tiscali is also having problems with certain aspects of its service, probably because of its denial of service attack recently; a visit to its Service Status page will reveal them.

The Pipex status site report no e-mail problems.
