IDNet Help / Music hiccups
« Last post by dudwell on May 25, 2020, 11:24:32 »
I'm experiencing short breaks, usually just a second or two but sometimes longer, in music playing on my echo dot 2. It's the same whether I'm using laptop or smartphone (the latter on wifi) to listen to internet radio, Amazon music, Spotify or casting from my own collection of mp3s.

Could it be that my 4 year old Billion-8800NL router isn't quite up to the task? Or any other ideas?

From the dates on the oldest and newest emails stored on the server. They are always 14 days apart.

Since manually deleting some stuff everything is back to normal except I have lost 24 hours worth of mail, some of which will have consequences. I've also just realised tomorrow is a bank holiday which just adds a rotten cherry on the whole rancid cake.

Where are you seeing the 14 day limit?  I've looked in my IDNet account and on the Webmail and I can't see any setting for that.  The only restrictions I can see are for old accounts which haven't been logged in to for ages.  As far as I can see, the normal mailbox limit is 100Mb.

I think I've solved this and at the moment I'm rather unhappy and more than a little concerned.

It appears the server is set to keep downloaded mail for 14 days. I don't recall setting this up so I'm assuming it's the default and seems reasonable. 14 days currently equates to 756 emails sitting on the server.

When I attempted to manually delete a single email via webmail I got a drive space error which I eventually manage to work around. Test email that I sent earlier then started to trickle though along with some spam. This suggests to me some kind of limit was reached for which I received no warning.

The worry is I appear at this point in time to have lost a day's email, including some extreamly important encrypted legal documents. Assuming I did reach a limit, does anyone know what happens to subsequently sent email?

I've established that I can send and the recipient receives but I still cannot receive. It has to be an issue with IDNet.

So it's just me. If it's an issue with Outlook it's downloaded them to somewhere I can't find and removed them from the server. I've parked it and started looking just on my iPhone. I'll need to phone support in the morning I guess.

I've just deleted the latest batch of bloody new member (spammer) notifications, so yes, I'm definitely receiving them.

Just a thought but could Outlook have downloaded them and cunningly hidden them somewhere unexpected?

Has anyone received any email since 7.00pm last night? I haven't and I know I should have had between 50 and 100 messages since then.

This coincided with an update to my Office/Outlook package and I thought it was a problem there but I've checked via webmail and confirmed nothing is being received.

If you have uBlock Origin you dont need UMatrix, they overlap

They're complementary. You can temporarily block or unblock aspects of a site using uMatrix. For example, a one-off blocking just CSS on a site can often remove some subscription/GDPR overlays. uBlock is useful also for permanently blocking an annoying graphical element of a site using its picker.

uBlock Origin, uMatrix, Privacy Badger and Decentraleyes here.

Paranoid? I can't tell you... they're watching me.
If you have uBlock Origin you dont need UMatrix, they overlap :) The other two are great as well and I recommend Facebook container too from Mozilla. Its a shame Chrome browsers don't have the ability to block CNAME-unlock network requests that are a nasty way to track, as Firefox has the correct API to block them with uBlock Origin, not sure about Brave.
