Yola Mail www.tvglobalenterprisesllc.com. I am very frustrated as I have not been able to log in for over 20 hours. This is my business email and some are saying that the emails being sent are being bounced back. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi Linda,

Thank you for providing us with this information. We have received your email, and our Call Center has made us aware of your conversation with them too.

I am unable to locate a problem on our end, so I have escalated your case to our mail services provider and asked them to investigate. They are usually quite quick and respond within 24 hours, so as soon as I have an update I will let you know.

I'm so sorry for the inconvenience and thank for your patience as we wait on a response.

Hi Jackie: Thanks for your reply. I was informed by Customer Support that the email provider was in fact having problems and that I was not the only one experiencing problems with my email. They were going to get back to me once they were able to discern the email provider's complete resolution of the problem. I hope that if this problem is not rectified that Yola consider transferring it's email account to a different service provide as I have been unable to access my email for over 36 hours at this point in time. I am getting lots of feedback that emails are bouncing back stating my email address does not exist. Please help me to resolve this matter expeditiously.

Thanks Again

Please confirm that I am not the only customer whose email is down. This is what was told to me yesterday. As I stated earlier please have a back up email provider because this is very harmful to your customer base when they paid and can't access their email account. The email account is more important than the website as customers and business associates are constantly communicating via email this is really not good business practices to permit a problem like this to remain unsolved. I would like to hear that you or someone in Yola personally spoke with a representative of the email provider. By the way, who is the email provider maybe I should contact them directly?

Hi Linda,

Our mail services provider is OpenSRS who is also our domain registration provider. I have spoken with them personally again today, and they have advised that they are still waiting for a resolution and will update us as soon as they have one. They do not have a phone contact for customers of resellers (Yola is the reseller), but I can contact their support team and ask them if you can contact them directly.

To our knowledge it is an isolated issue. It would not be feasible to have a back up mail services provider as it would take longer to re-route our customers to a new provider than it would be to fix the problem.

We understand the importance of this issue and how much it is affecting your business. I can contact OpenSRS to see if they can forward your emails to another email address until they fix the problem? This may not be a possibility, but if you can provide me with another email address then at least we can ask them.

Thanks,
Jackie

Hello Jackie: I had the pleasure of chatting with John from OpenSRS he confirmed that the ticket has been escalated to high priority. He also indicated that Yola could reroute my emails to linda.tvglobalenterprises@yahoo.com. Can you please expedite my request as it has been 3 days since I have been able to receive any emails.
Thanks

Hallo Mike

Het spijt mij dat het zo lang heeft geduurt om die fout uit de weg te ruimen, maar de goede tijding is: Het werkt nu weer!

Please clear your browser's cache and cookies, log into your Yola account, click on your Yola Mail tab, and there you should see your mailbox to manage. Please let us know if there should be further problems.

Wij wensen u nog veel plezier met Yola!

Hallo,

Het kan zijn dat ik iets verkeerd doe, maar naar mijn idee werkt de mail nog steeds niet. Zelfs niet nadat ik de instructies heb gevolgd. En daarbij komt dat jullie twee maal achter elkaar de kosten voor een jaarlijks email-adress hebben afgeschreven. Hoe gaan we dit oplossen?

hello

I am also having this problem and am at my wits end

I cannot access my inbox for angelabutler.net , it tells me authentification has failed but I am due to fly for my holiday and need to log in to print off my boarding pass and get the details for my flight, hostel etc etc

PLEASE help me as I also use this as my MAIN BUSINESS ADDRESS and am worried that I am missing important mails as I have just realized it has been quiet for around 6 days now....

I just thought my mails were quiet but now understand why (I get my mails directed to hotmail you see so had not actually tried logging in until tonight)

I panicked and even BOUGHT A NEW INBOX !! But won't let me access it..

HELP :(

Hi Angela,

Just to confirm that both your domain and Yola Mail accounts are up and running. We will let you know as soon as your two mailboxes are combined, however if you would prefer to keep them separate let us know.

Thank you for working through this with us!

Hallo Mike

Als ik mij in uw account inlog en links op Yola Mail klik, zie ik de correcte pagina als volgt:



Ziet u die pagina ook of wordt een andere pagina getoond voor u?
Als ik op de knop "Check inbox" klik, wordt uw Yola Mail login pagina geopend. Kunt u die pagina ook openen?

Voordat ik u wel kan voorthelpen, beschrijft u mij alstublieft precies wat gebeurt wanneer u wat doet en als u en foutmelding krijgt (en wat die zegt). U kunt ook een screenshot posten.

Het spijt mij als wij de kosten voor een Yola Mail mailbox twee keren hebben afgeschreven. Misschien hebt u die abusievelijk twee keren gekocht, maar ik kan ook geen twee mailboxes in uw Yola account zien, dus het is misschien een technische fout, sorry. Wij gaan u de kosten natuurlijk terugbetalen.

Hallo Mike

Wij hebben u de kosten voor een mailbox terugbetaald en u zou het geld in een paar dagen krijgen. Dank u voor uw geduld.
