All data has been copied. Tomorrow morning the disk will be replaced at the data center in Gunzenhausen. Please check and make sure all data has been copied. We checked already and just want to make sure. After tomorrow there will be no more chance to retrieve missing parts.

Since a few hours https://webmail.thing.net is up again. We are still copying mail data in the background. Lots of mail data. Please help to make this a greener server by deleting your trash and spam and all unnecessary messages now and in the future. Just like you have to empty your waste basket next to your desk from time to time. IMAP and POP will go on as soon as all data has been transferred.

Yesterday we had a major crash on the thing.net server. Both drives showed errors and the raid system did not work properly. We need to copy all data to a new drive and then replace the disk. As of this morning all domains are working and the mail server is accepting mail. We hope to restore full mail service within a few hours.

A number of people called with mail problems. This is mainly due to outdated mail server settings in client programs. Please check your setting and look if they conform to the following:
incoming mail (pop): pop.thing.net
smtp now requires authentication. Enter your e-mail as username and the same password that you use for incoming mail. To protect your privacy, you can also turn on SSL or TSL authentication in your incoming and outgoing mail settings to request an encrypted connection.
