  1. Having a "hosted" suggestion box is cool, but maybe it shouldn't be a "one of the admins decided to ask what people wanted" thing, but rather, a more standard wishlist forum, something like the "Tutorial Suggestions" forum. My local video rental place has a book on the counter where people can write their suggestions ("Please get 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'", e.g.), and the staff write in their responses ("out of print", "too expensive", "already have it", etc.) There could even be a summary Q&A area, where people can quickly go and find out why TCH isn't offering such-and-such a service
  2. OK, sorry I jumped to the conclusion that postini was involved on the TCH side. It turns out that my company is the one using it, and I just got walked through the process of whitelisting email addresses, getting reports of filtered spam, etc. etc. I'm looking forward to my new spam-free(er) existence.
  3. My wife, who is now using her TCH email account as her primary one, has sent me a number of emails that seem never to have arrived. She got no bounce message, and I got no email. I'm looking into this on my end as well (my company does have spam filters), but I thought I'd ask about Postini, since I just discovered that this 3rd party company was involved. I looked at the headers on some of her mails that did get to me, and they go from server26 through a couple of servers at postini.com before they come to me. I had no idea what this postini thing was, so I went to their website and found
  4. Is this a change in policy? I was specifically told this was not possible. See http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/forums/i...t=0entry14056.
  5. I know that with Apache it's possible in the httpd.conf file to limit access to a certain directory based on the IP address of the person visiting the website, and I had thought it was possible using .htaccess files as well. Does anyone know how I might go about setting that up for a particular subdomain? I already have www.foo.com, and I want to make semiprivate.foo.com be available to people who either have a password, or who visit from certain domains or IP addresses. Can I do that? Thanks.
  6. When I log into my webmail using Horde, I first get the browser-based popup asking for name and password, and then the main Horde page appears to fill those same values into another page that I have to click OK on. The trouble is, if I log out, I'm just taken back to the page that has all my personal info filled in already! Not much of a logout, is it? Furthermore, if I created that browser window originally by using, say, Ctrl-N to make a new window (rather than a new instance of the browser process), then even if I close that window, and use Ctrl-N to make a new browser window, it seems to
  7. OK, I can now see how that makes sense, thanks for explaining it.
  8. Suppose I have an ISP that's given me a static IP address, I just recently signed up for a new domain, say it's "foo.com", and TCH is now hosting it. Could I create a subdomain called "bar.foo.com" and have it resolve to There's a note in the subdomain maintenance area that says "have your sysadmin add an A entry with the ip you wish to use for all future subdomains". Does that mean that there can only be one? Or, does it mean that all subdomains of bar.foo.com will have to resolve to Could I have "baz.foo.com" that points to as well? Is this capability
  9. I just signed up for hosting, got my domain, and have been playing for the last couple of days. Everything works great, and it sure looks like there's an active, helpful community here. So, I'm hoping one of you out there can help me out. I registered "foo.com" (well, not really, but let's pretend), and got my "main account" username "fooco", and my password, "***". I can now log onto the control panel at http://foo.com/cpanel using "fooco" as my username and password "***". I create a new email account for my wife, "mrsfoo", and she can now read mail by accessing, say, http://foo.com/s
