More on my domain's email

I wrote previously about mailshell.com, my now former email provider for my domain. If you'll recall, I got fed up and transferred everything over to Google Apps for Your Domain and have been awesomely pleased. Well, today I got an email from mailshell.com. Basically, they said that the email service was just something they had underwritten, but their core business was OEM licenses of some anti-spam software. A small number of rogue users have abused and flooded the infrastructure, and they had enough. So mailshell.com is dropping all email hosting service, effective February 28.

Well, thanks for telling us -- OVER A MONTH LATER -- what the issue was. I will gladly take my refund now, you jerks. And I laugh that they are focusing on their anti-spam software, when they themselves could not stay off blacklists themselves. Their filtering was, at best, mediocre. I wholly expect that this company won't exist for much longer in any form.

Mailshell served it's purpose and never matured. Good luck and good riddance, Mailshell.

Google Apps for Your Domain rocks the dump. =) No offense, since I've never used Commtouch's services.
