IMAP, SMTP, and FTP access to my ISP times out.
I have a number of domains and associated emails hosted by BlueHost and during the work week access to my email(s) fails with: Connection to server mail.xxx.com timed out.
Everything works fine in the evening and over the weekend, it's just between ~0730 and 1530 on monday-friday that the time-out's occur. Then, magically, the timeouts stop and everything is fine.
I can get my email via the ISP's webmail interface, can get email on my Iphone if I turn wifi off and can get email consistently all the time using the same mail client on the same account 7/24 using a remote connection in another city.
So, what's the deal Xfinity? I've spend maybe 3 full workdays getting nothing but "reset the modem" or sorry, our email works so you have to talk with your hosting company....
Using outlook, thunderbird, and Apple mail.
Oh, and did I mention that I have an FTP account with the same hosting company that also times out during this same period!
Anyone have any ideas (besides switching to DSL)?
