Emails Lost During Bigpond Outage

My email was down for several hours this afternoon with emails able to be sent from my Bigpond account but not received during this time.


I am now receiving emails again however, have a gap of four hours with no emails.  I know that I was sent emails during this period and wonder how I can access them or if they are lost??

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Emails Lost During Bigpond Outage

Generally email is pretty fault tolerant. In a lot of cases the servers sending email will retry sending over certain intervals for a couple of days before giving up.

So you may find those emails dribbling in over the next 24-48 hours.
