Rediffmail Server Problem- Several accounts affected
April 8, 2011 | by techlineinfo.com
Something seriously going wrong with Rediffmail. Rediff is not my primary or secondary email account but never forget to login at least once in a week. Today just tried to login and got a message “Service Temporarily unavailable We are not able to Sign you in at this time. Please try after sometime. We appreciate your patience and regret the inconvenience caused to you”
It is learned that many other Rediff users are also facing similar problems. The customer support of Rediff says they have some issues with their servers and working on it. No user data or contents will be lost. You need not to go for the recover password option, wait for sometime and try again.
Recently Gmail users have also experienced similar problems due to some issues at their end. Nowadays email accounts are very much important for both personal and business needs, and these type of problems can paralyze you. Hence we must always prepare for a disaster which can be happened at any time. Proper backup of data and contacts are very much important in terms of survival.
How to backup of your Rediffmail account ?
For backup and mail grabbing options you have to enable POP3 in your mail account. Unfortunately the POP3 access of Rediffmail is a payed service. POP3 access of a Rediffmail account costs Rs 399/- INR (Approx 9$) for one year. Once activated, you will be able to download the contacts and mails to your desktop email clients like MS Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird etc .
