About a week ago I signed up for hosted BES with a small Canadian firm. Although the firm was very nice it seems quite small and I experienced an outage yesterday. The company'e entire web site was down for a short time, which made me nervous. I like to stay connected via email.
I quickly (perhaps too quickly?) switched to Mailstreet. I switched my DNS and after 12 hours or so for propagation was back up on Mailstreet. I did a search here and saw that Mailstreet had an outage earlier this year that lasted about a half a day. I did the research after I selected Mailstreet - which I know seems backwards.
I would like to know from others here how reliable Mailstreet is. If I am going to switch I'd prefer to do it soon and settle in for the long haul with the most reliable hosted BES provider I can find. Although I do care about price reliability is more important to me.
I welcome hearing about the experience of other BB users with hosted BES.
I've been with MailStreet now for at least two years. I remember the outage, but I don't remember that it lasted as long as a day and a half. And that is the only instance of anything like that happening at all. Their customer service is outstanding. I don't think you'll be disappointed at all. You made a good choice.
I have used MailStreet for 2 years, I have 2 company accounts with them and so far they have been very reliable. Tech support has been excellent as well. I don't recall the outage mentioned above lasting more then one day for me...actually I think it was less then a day. Overall, I am very pleased with their service.
