I recently moved all of my email over to Google Apps because I was sick and tired of fighting spam. Everything worked great for about a month. Now, however, I am perpetually locked out of my email - whether via a desktop client or via my iPhone. This is obviously utterly unacceptable.
I have searched and searched and searched the Google forums and documentation, and cannot find a &*(&@^## solution. I can, however, find lots and lots of threads and posts of people having the exact same problem, with absolutely no solution being posted. So I now turn to you, my fellow CFers, in hopes of an answer.
A) Do you use IMAP with Gmail (regular or Google Apps) and have found a solution to this issue?
B) Do you use another IMAP mail service (free or not) that you can and will recommend?
I look forward to your responses!
It boggles my mind that Google is trying to get companies to pay them for email (and other) services when they refuse to even attempt to support their services. With so many people using both the free and paid Google Apps services experiencing the exact same problem, the issue is obviously a serious one and if Google intends to play in the corporate email/document world, then they had better get their act together and start servicing their offerings.
After being held hostage by Google for five days, I decided that enough is enough. I am now quite happily paying Rackspace $34 per month for MS Exchange hosting. I no longer have any email headaches whatsoever. Spam? Gone. Lockouts? Gone. Google? Gone. :-)
