INFO: Email issues [Update]

Just an update folks. Primary mail servers are still throwing a wobbly, so I've migrated it to my internal mail servers. Unfortunately, if you've sent me an email in the last 7 days or so, I have to ask you please re-send it.

Thank you for your patience.

INFO: Incoming email

Just a note folks, the mail server that receives my incoming email is down (has been for around 10-15 mins or there abouts). Domain Monster are aware of it and are working on sorting it out.

Needless to say, I can't receive email at present.

INFO: Doogee Voyager2 DG310 users

I was alerted to an issue by a user with a Doogee Voyager2 DG310 mobile phone, of an issue accessing the hpHosts site.

After a lot of arguing with the server, it appears there was an issue with the firewall blocking requests. The firewall needed re-installing anyway (it had issues logging for some reason), so have done that and re-configured it from scratch (you'll likely have noticed the server going on and offline a bit in the last 12 hours or so), and after a little testing with the Doogee Voyager2 DG310 UA, the issue now appears finally resolved.

If you're using this mobile and are still having issues, please drop me an email.
