    Has anyone who's using mail2web noticed that they're not receiving email today? (both to their phone AND to the actual account itself)

    Mine has worked perfectly the last 2 weeks since I set up my account (has thus far been MUCH more reliable than mobileme, when it comes to the email aspect)... but today seems to have died :(

    anyone else having the same problem?

    i just got an account for mail2web recently and its worked pretty much flawless. However this morning (it was working last night!) when i open my mail up it says " the connection to the server failed".

    I hope it gets resolved soon. Im gonna email them now

    A Possible Solution...

    I started having the same problem a few days ago but think I've found a solution to my problem.

    I set the Server setting to "" and now it works. This is how mail2web says it should be configured.

    I originally used "" as instructed in this lifehacker article.

    sadly it's still not working... I configured the mail app exactly as stated in that article, and when I go to my mailbox, it immediately (or close to immediately) pops up "Cannot Get Mail: The Connection the the Server Failed"

    I just don't think their servers can deal with the load... or at least that's what it seems like.

    Does anyone know of any other good hosted exchange email services?

    Still working...

    I'm sorry to hear it didn't work for you... mine is still working well since I made this change.
