My state and eleven others are currently experiencing a global email outage. It went down Friday evening. Weird.

That is odd! Definitely bad timing for on-line businesses.

A hack of some sort? (I certainly hope not!)

Email outage? What does it mean exactly? You can't bring down every mail server in the state Biggrin
Is this for you ISP?

It's Cox. When Comcast had an outage a few years ago I went to GMail and haven't ever looked back. ISP Email is unreliable and 90 percent of the time it's POP which limits a message's availability and ties it to one device.

Internet with no email? What?

You mean your ISP's email service went down? Interesting. Never trusted those people anyway.

Yeah, GMail is the way to go. I've never used my comcast account.

Makes sense now. I didn't think anyone still used those ISP email services.
