Pacbell Internet email outage: server problem? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Us PacBell types have been experiencing a nearly complete inability to send or receive mail since yesterday. Anyone heard anything about this? According to the PBI site, it's been down since 6PM Saturday (24 hours as I type this). I imagine the phone lines are going nuts right about now.

Yeah, the incredibly robust Internet. I got yer "robust" right here, babe...

I was unable to connect to earthlink the entire day, until I finally got through tonight at about 9 pm. Constant busy signal. Then when I called their phone line, the recording said they would be taking my call in approximately...26 minutes! So I just left my email up, trying to connect every 2 minutes. ALL DAY. Dunno whether this is a local deal or something else.

I would like to give my 2c worth also. I had big problems with Pac Bell 1 1/2 wks ago and finally received my mail which was 5+ days old. Today I am able to send e-mail, however, receiving is another story. Has anyone noticed that Pac Bell's response time is very slow in the evenings and late at night? - I would like to know the real problems they are experiencing. --- Does anyone have any ideas? --Wondering.
