GoDaddy e-mail problems

Over the last 10 days or so I have noticed 5 to 6 (on average) search queries a day on: “GoDaddy e-mail slow“.

Yes, we had noticed that it was a bit sluggish, but it was only a few minutes ago that it really became an issue for me. Yesterday or day before Deanna complained that her GoDaddy e-mail was so slow that it might as well be down. But, she managed to get what she wanted done.

This morning I encountered some major problems. It was definitely down for a few minutes. Plus it is slow — particularly when it comes to displaying e-mails and logging in.

From my decade and more of experience with GoDaddy e-mail this could be either due to one of two things: capacity problems on the server (processing or bandwidth) OR GoDaddy is yet again being subjected to a ‘Denial of Service‘ (DoS) attack that is slowing everything down. Knowing GoDaddy (as I do) I am fairly sure that they are aware of this problem and will fix it in the next couple of weeks. I will, of course, he monitoring it.

So, this is just a heads up. Best of luck. I know how frustrating this can be.

      It has been intermittent from what I can see. I was locked out for about 10 minutes earlier this morning. I haven’t tried recently. Something is definitely up. I think, as with their hosting, there are different e-mail severs, the cookie(s) that they maintain on your PC determining which IP address you get connected to. So that could be it too. With their hosting you can have a scenario that some sites are up other down. Not sure it is worth calling. They know.
      ALL the best. I will keep my toes crossed for you. Just checked with wife. She just logged in and her e-mail is working. Hope this helps. Cheers. Anura

    Mine has been playing games all day. Messages are appearing telling me that my email account is having difficulty sending emails. please check with my provider. I tried thru IE, a window came up and said Due to connectivity problems my email service wasn’t working properly. Please contact your provider. Talked with Godaddy. There were NO reports of anyone having problems with their email and so it must be my computer. Argh.

      GoDaddy e-mail has been acting up the last few days. No question. I, earlier today, e-mailed a heads up to the GoDaddy President’s Office. I have had much luck with that. Do you have good Internet connection. Have you used something like to check it. To be fair, some of it sounds like a connectivity issue. Let me know. Cheers, Anura
