Good Morning!
Do any of you use a mail server located outside of Belize i.e. a non-BTL mail server?
We're unable to access ours (Houston) today.
IT suggests it may be a BTL router problem...

Yup...major problems with BTL outgoing (smtp) server today and almost every day. One solution is to use gmail...then you bypass btl mail by going to gmail via your browser. Yahoo is the same idea but kinda funky in use.

you can always use a purchased smtp server account. i use to clean my mail, and give me an smtp server that i can use anywhere anytime i have internet access. i travel a lot i can't be tied to the smtp for whatever isp i am using.

fastmail also has tremendous mailkeeping capabilities, its my secretary as well. multiple configurable auto responders, filing, spam removal and configuration, have some put into a maybe spam folder, others not.....

i couldn't work nearly as efficiently without fastmail. its the best $3us i spend every month!!!!

i worked for a company for awhile that had 70 traveling users. all i setup using a single fastmail smtp account. ended all the troubles with finding out the smtp server for whatever hotel various folks were in etc....

Thanks Jesse and Marty,
This is our corporate server located in the US.
BTL informs me it's an AT&T issue and that they're working on it.
I've spoken with another company that uses a similar system, and they're not experiencing any problems.
Hopefully just a technical prob that'll be resolved soonish...

yes works ANYWHERE!!!!! the perfect all everywhere smtp server!!!! not to mention its mail sorting capabilities.

i'm telling you, with a traveling staff of 70 with laptops, the smtp problems were HUGE til i got that fastmail account. for three lousy dollars a month, cured the smtp problems for 70 traveling nerds.

everyone used the same one!!!

Is there anything online that explains the benefits of the Fastmail service in layman's terms? I have looked at their website.
