They have a great customer support!

I just looked into there service after reading your post. I had some questions and the customer service rep was very good and very patient with me. The rep spent almost an hour answering all my questions. The biggest plus with this service is you can host multiple domains under one account. They left a very good first impression on me. I hope this helps in your quest for hosting.

I use gemstream after trying 4-5 others, they are really great, almost no downtime and very accurate timely responses to every issue or question.

It's called "business", kiddy. From the name I think it might have something to do with, oh, maybe, candles. If you aren't interested, don't click. People who have to work for a living are successful because they take advantage of opportunities. People who don't work for a living don't understand that.

Email reliability?
Jan 10, 2006 4:16AM PST

I'm shopping for a new hosting service because I was not receiving a large portion of emails with hosting. And these were emails from business colleagues on corporate exchange servers! Anyway, does anyone have service and can comment on this? I was checking out but then saw several negative reviews about the same kind of "missing" email issues....any feedback is appreciated!

dont bother if you want email
Nov 2, 2007 4:06AM PDT

I have a business account with them.
They are blacklisted on msn, hotmail, and yahoo, so you wont send to them, you can get some mail to hotmail by adding an spx record.

I subscribe to a lot of list-servers, which I only get SOME emails from.
It turns out. I found this out from the replies that quoted the original or responding posts.

Interestingly, I get no bounce messages from any of these.

There are other issues with them too, but I have expressed those in other threads.

I am getting out from lunar asap.
