  1. Thanks. They only create a @criptext.com email for you, not your domain, and the non-standards "encryption" only works between two of their own accounts. They are also disingenuous about "open source"; there's no code for desktop or server. They are also disingenuous about the effects of a national security order with gag protection. Website where text doesn't stay within box elements, and you can't click links or copy text from their re-collapsing Javascript drop-down boxes. Don't make websites like this.
  2. Finally found it by using webmail; indeed marked spam by Comcast instead of delivered; their spam filter folder apparently doesn't IMAP sync. Here's things that might have triggered it https://postmaster.comcast.net/avoidblocks.html; you might craft a new email for Comcasters avoiding these rules. Here's headers that have some spam ratings: X-Xfinity-VMeta: sc=349.00;st=spam X-Xfinity-Message-Heuristics: IPv6:N;TLS=1;SPF=1;DMARC=P Authentication-Results: resimta-po-21v.sys.comcast.net; dkim=pass header.d=cody.heliohost.org header.b=2IU9rz5J; dkim=pass header.d=heliohost.org header.b=Tj43rPph DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; q=dns/txt; c=relaxed/relaxed; d=cody.heliohost.org; s=default; h=Date:Message-Id:Content-type: List-Unsubscribe:From:MIME-Version:Subject:To:Sender:Reply-To:Cc: Content-Transfer-Encoding:Content-ID:Content-Description:Resent-Date: Resent-From:Resent-Sender:Resent-To:Resent-Cc:Resent-Message-ID:In-Reply-To: References:List-Id:List-Help:List-Subscribe:List-Post:List-Owner:List-Archive ; bh=y3Ylo1DoGeo53BCSUbhrdwQEQXZ1ojegrr3b1zT1Shg=; b=2IU9rz5JS+0J/bdJzF+jPIyv
  3. Just looked at some options from another thread: Yandex: funnels your mail right to the KGB Zoho: has a terrible deceptive website where the only call-to-action is "sign up for free". Do not make websites like this. One has to do Google searching of site:zoho.com to come up with minimum fee $12/yr per user, and no pop/imap at free tier with max 5 users and no wildcard https://www.zoho.com/mail/zohomail-pricing.html ...might just use registrar's free email forwarding for up to 10 accounts per domain. Will miss having unlimited wildcard to sign up for spammy sites.
  4. I've gotten no emails about the impending doom...it's only happenstance that I just logged in to see this news. (don't need a backup tho). Might need to blast out another warning to every email you have.
  5. Was just looking into keeping my email up through all this, as mail, being on the host servers, would also be going down. My domain's DNS is via Heliohost. I'm guessing that DNS being un-configurable, I'll need to pull back DNS to my registrar's DNS service too... For other's reference, discovered that Dynadot.com has a passable cheap plan for unlimited email accounts (but limited yearly data cap per $$) and webhosting, $16/year. Only one domain name per account. Only webmail and POP3 (mail does not stay mirrored on web server). The web hosting included is static, FTP. The shared 30MB of disk space could be quickly burned through just by emails, so a software client regularly checking and downloading emails is almost mandatory anyway. Dynadot has a refer-a-friend program, both referrer and new account get $5 credit after $10+ purchase. I'd have to email a link to recipient though, quite stupid.. Any other ideas for cheap mail that only needs MX pointed to it? I'd just spin up a VM on my own server except for the port interference by the ISP and lack of rDNS and dynamic IP blocking by recipients.
  6. This seems to be recurring again, but with multiple retries I wasn't able to bypass. It took a few repeated attempts a week ago. Steps to reproduce: - Visit https://www.heliohost.org/# - login button, username & password for Tommy account - password error - Firefox ESR, uBlock Bookmarked cPanel at https://tommy.heliohost.org:2083 got me on, but probably doesn't register as a once-a-month login. Now logon works, but perhaps because I'm already in cPanel session with another tab. edit: after that login, "continue to cPanel", got me a web server error instead. Core dump. Internal Server Error 500 No response from subprocess (cpanel (cpanel)): The subprocess reported error number 72,057,594,037,927,935 when it ended. The process dumped a core file.cpsrvd Server at tommy.heliohost.org Too many cPanel accounts?
  7. Done, thanks much! (BTW, something's bogged down so much my cpanel login returned bad password twice, had to retry...)
  8. Hi, the change domain tool (with three boxes), launched from the login welcome screen, flat out says "you did not enter the correct password" for me, besides apparently being deprecated/poorly supported. I have a heliohost.org subdomain that I've publicized, for an account on Ricky that's apparently not coming back anytime soon. I created a Tommy account but only .us was available on setup. Can the existing .org be moved to my Tommy account, please (and is it possible to just add the org subdomain instead of changing my new "main domain"?) domain: heliohost.org subdomain: taurus cpanel account: flexman old cpanel account: flexo thanks! (I bought a domain, now just need to host redirects with the old domain..)
  9. I just tried on a different browser. same. Also get to see a terrible scam ad that has buttons "direct deposit account" "bank checking account" "create a free website"...
  10. Still there, the "unblocked" reply was 15 hours ago. Something else on the website still is creating this prompt.
  11. Warning still showing up when logging in to heliohost website, with link to come here. Email account was disabled on my end. Your IP has been blocked!The IP address has been blocked for trying to log in to IMAP with the wrong password too many times. To prevent this from happening again in the future please make sure your email client username and password are correct. You won't be able to continue to cPanel until an admin unblocks you. To request that your IP be unblocked please visit
  12. You killed me off for trying to check IMAP on dead Ricky? Finally used my Tommy invite - only to not be able to log in to CPANEL. "The IP address has been blocked for trying to log in to IMAP with the wrong password too many times." (please wipe IP after fixin', thanks!)
  13. On the positive side, no HTTP means FTPd is blazing fast...
