schestowitzMoved to Ex online about 6 months ago from very crappy hosting co. Not my first choice but I don't get final say, 40 accounts at the moment. The problem with the ex online was started when the company we had move us setup a account to act as main contact point and they never setup a fwd so someone would get the email notices. Then the owner killed the CC used for the billing and didn't let me know to change it. Ex online sent Dec 03 08:45
schestowitzemail notices but they were never read (no fwd) so we found out when they disabled all the accounts Thursday AM except mine (The joys of being Admin). What is most annoying are the emails that they send. Names have been changed to protect the guilty.Dec 03 08:45
