Email seems lost in the post? You might be a Tsohost customer

Norbie

It's just one problem after another with Tsohost. I'm so pleased I found out the founders started up a hosting company again, but sensibly this time using public cloud infra (Google / AWS / Azure etc.). It makes sense, why would you spend millions on your own gear that just isn't as good? Their migrations team moved over all the sites and mailboxes too so it was brilliant. Check them out - Stablepoint.

Microsoft blocked TSO Host's email IPs from Hotmail, Outlook inboxes and no one seems to care

Time to move on

If you haven’t moved on already, I strongly encourage you to look at Stablepoint. Setup by the original TSO founders, it’s proper hosting as it should be (as TSO was back in the day!). They know the TSO systems inside out so can help you easily migrate customers over. They’ve got a community Slack channel too if you want to ask any questions.

Re: So, what's a good alternative...

If anyone remembers how good Tso was back in the day, you’d likely be pleased to know the original founders have started a new hosting company - Stablepoint.

I started to move my sites over from Tso a few months back and they’ve been fantastic. They have a Slack community channel too for questions.

Get in the bin: Let's Encrypt gives admins until February 13 to switch off TLS-SNI-01

Too many LE devices, no clue as to which need updating

It would be helpful if the Let's Encrypt email that I have received informing me that I have a Let's Encrypt client that used ACME TLS-SNI-01 domain validation to issue a certificate in the past 60 days, told me what the hostname was so I had a chance of discovering which of the many servers / devices that I have LE implemented on is affected!

Well just got my key...

... and it's the same as the ones that other people are getting. Supposed to be 10 installs per person/product key but they are giving out very few product key, most people are getting the same ones.

How on earth do they plan to limit this to 2.5 million people? Microsoft really have no idea what they are doing.

Happy face for Microsoft giving everyone a free OS.

Sad to see it go

As an ex-helper on Castle Cops, it is sad to see it go. I worked with some good people on there, and we were able to provide a great deal of help to people, for free.
