What happened to MsgTag?

Sat Apr 23, 2011 3:47 pm

I've seen Mailwasher and MsgTag in the same advertisements, so I'm hoping someone (Nick?) knows why the MsgTag servers seem to have disappeared.

Anyone know?

Thanks! Kirby in Colorado

I have no idea personally, but will see what I can find out as The Big Cheese keeps in touch with the owners.

OK, The Big Cheese doesn't keep in touch with the owners as often as I thought. We've asked but don't expect a reply (as previous emails went unanswered).


Any information I get I'll post though.

Rusticdog - thank you for checking.

I've noticed other messages starting to pop up elsewhere on the net. I also sent a Facebook message to Daniel Sim Lind.

Thanks! Kirby

More than likely it will be a server issue, last time this happened it was a hardware issue on one of the servers.

I'd like to know as well. I use MSGTAG Status and haven't been able to connect to servers or the domain for most of the week. I think it's fair to assume this isn't related to the earthquake in Christchurch since that was in Feb. For the past few years though when there were several server issues the exact same email replies were received. Kind of made me a little weary from a tech support standpoint :roll:

We heard back from the folk at MSGTAG , the site should be up soon as well as a new version. Not 100% on the delays, I wasn't given any more information beyond that, I could only speculate that the Easter break in NZ this weekend has something to do with it.

No worries, just hope it comes back up soon, these kinds of things can be very frustrating.
