DreamHost has been having massive email problems this week. I’ve had no access to my IMAP email for about 45 hours now. Generally I consider DreamHost to be the best of the worst — that is, for the very low price I pay I get competent but not great email and webhosting. But this might be the final straw for me.
DreamHost email is back to normal, after a total of 58 hours of downtime. So if they have no other outages in 2016, they still get 99.3% uptime.
In truth, not a lot of harm done to me personally — Slack and SMS filled in most of the gap — but it reminded me how much of modern digital life is tied to receiving timely emails, like login verification and purchase confirmation
I spent some research time learning how to move my email to another host and hope to execute that shortly.
