Can't seem to get connect via imap or pop to myrealbox.com. Am I missing
something?

Looked like the DNS record expired today when I checked earlier;
Messaging Architects acquired the site from Novell, probably should check
with them to see what's up.

So...

I dunno, but, if I was to steal someone's registration, I'd do more
than just change the contact email and point it to the registrar...

But I guess people are not as original as I am ;)

Either way, I've called the registrar and it's fixed, DNS propagation
is going to take a while.

For now, myrealbox.net and myrealbox.org were not hijacked... (again,
lack of imagination from the people who did this)

Apologies, but it's coming back to normal.

Joseph Marton,

Why would someone still stick with myrealbox when gmail is available?

Dunno. I've never actually used myrealbox. Just GMail. I feel
comfortable at night knowing that every e-mail I send or receive is
potentially indexed by the same servers that index all of the Internet.

Because myrealbox doesn't read your mail.

How do you know? Ok scratch that comment. My real comment is: Neither do
you when myrealbox isn't working which is a lot of the time.

It just seems wrong that the company whose stated mission is to know
everything about everybody touch my email (or host my business docs).

Because of their content scanning, we have a number of mailing lists for
healthcare compliance that won't allow anyone to join with a gmail
account. As other freemail providers do content scanning, they get
blocked, as well.
