End of the Road for FrontPage Installations
Posted by Randy Donald on 05 November 2014 07:27 PM
Hello
Microsoft discontinued support for FrontPage Extensions on Linux servers in 2006 however to support legacy web publishing programs we have kept Frontpage Extensions active on our servers for as long as it would still function. cPanel, the hosting control panel that we use across our servers, have finally decided to completely disable FrontPage Extensions in their lastest version release.  Over the coming days we will be upgrading three of our servers to this new cPanel version (11.46). These servers are tomkins.hosting-nation.com, fayrfax.hosting-nation.com, and roma.hosting-nation.com. The other servers will follow later on.

Problems with Outgoing Mail?
Posted by Randy Donald on 24 September 2014 06:00 PM

If you cannot send mail where you did once before your ISP may have instituted a block on the SMTP port 25 to anything but their own mailserver. This is quite normal practice these days. Recently Shaw has done so in our local area. To make your mail work again, you will need to change the Outgoing SMTP port from 25 to 587 or 26. In Outlook it is under the Advanced tab of the More Settings area of the Account Settings. 

We can help you find the setting if you need help.
