    Link2ICT email issues ?? No external mail?

    Is anyone else not able to send or receive any external emails through link2ICT?
    We have our own exchange server and the emails are just queuing up and not being sent. But were also not receiving any!

    Anyone else got the issue?

    No problems Office 365 wise using OWA and no on site Exchange server. I know they're having major on-going problems with Zimbra, so I'd suggest you give them a call. No doubt it's all probably linked.

    Have had info from Link2ICT the mail servers are trying to deal with a massive influx of spam at the moment, most of it going to quarantine. This is making the mail servers un-responsive and sluggish.

    The spam is out of control at the moment. Worse than ever!

    Our emails seem little slugish today - Zimbra 8. The amount of spam has increased a lot the last few days. I think practically everyone got some Natwest phishing email yesterday.

    Funny, they failed to mention any of this to me earlier. We are using O365 but have a local relay for Spiceworks, we haven't been able to send replies out but are getting them inbound. Annoying as I usually check here first!

    we couldn't send anything out to zimbra schools yesterday... guess that's why!

    Our broadband speed has been pathetic this week as well was 6mb download at 12pm Monday on Friday it fell to 2mb! Could these issues be linked in any way?

    Our email came back to life around 9pm last night. All the test emails that were queued up in exchange came through to an external account at once

    I think this will make is seriously consider moving our internet away from them for September

    Not using zimbra but our on site exchange is working ok now.

    So it could just be a zimbra issue
