    Mediacom email issues

    Anyone else still experiencing email problems as we had to switch to google mail just to get our email at home and on our cell phone now we get when we log on:

    Loading ...If you are using a slow connection or an older computer, you may want to switch to the Standard (HTML) version.

    Patience is wearing thin with Mediacon!!!

    Yes, had it yesterday and today (while trying to access it via Web browser.) Yesterday I couldn't do anything with messages other than read them in the preview window. Ugh.

    Re: Mediacom email issues

    I gave up on MediaCom email a month or so when they did their switch. That was amateur hour. I don't know how many times they re-restored my inbox, and 95% of was spam that suddenly started coming through. Several times a day I'd have hundreds of emails that I just deleted.

    With the iPhone, connectivity was always spotty getting to MediaCom's servers. Much, much happier with gmail connection.

    Re: Mediacom email issues

    I just put in an order to switch to Mediacom cable internet. Heard good things about it. Hope I made the right decision. For only 13 bucks a month, seems like a good deal.

    There is nothing wrong with Mediacom internet besides begin expensive. Just don't use them for email.

    BTW-How are you only paying $13/month?

    I wonder why i don't see it. All I see is $29 teaser rate and that's if you sign up for their cable, internet, and voice. I would actually move back if they would charge me $29 without adding all their other crap.

    I got a thing in the mail with the 12.95 for internet and 12.95 for phone. Just called the number they provided, added a HD/DVR for my household for only 10 bucks and got the internet for 12.95. I'm in the Quad Cities so maybe that made a difference, don't know.

    Yahoo and Gmail both have unlimited storage and you can keep them forever even if you change ISP's. I wouldn't recommend anyone use Mediacom's email, ever.

    There is no reason to ever use Mediacom email. Use their internet service, but not their email. Get Gmail; it's free.

    Re: Mediacom email issues

    Still happening today. I sent a note using the Mediacom Web site option and got a message back saying, in part,

    "Thank you for contacting us. This problem maybe temporary and can be resolved by logging out and logging back in. If you continue to experience the problem, please try clearing your browser cache and resetting it to default settings.

    We have included instructions for Internet Explorer 7 & later. If you have an older version of Internet Explorer or a different internet browser, please consult the Help file or the software manufacturer’s website."


    If this was happening only to my computer and one browser, I might accept that.

    Re: Mediacom email issues

    Clearing the cache and temp files did work for me to get past the loading screen. I called them and they said it is work around and it is something they are working on.

    Re: Mediacom email issues

    My favorite part of having Mediacom internet was when it was down, you could bet you'd be on the phone for 20 minutes minimum and they'd play a message telling you to go to their help page online to answer questions. That'd be ******* dandy if you had service you dumb ****ers.
