The aktivix mail server needs some serious upgrading and updating. Servers need free space for this, and this server does not have it. So aktivix is doing some clearning.
We did three mailouts with the idea that, those who wouldn’t answer any of them, would loose their email accounts. The post on the website says more.
What we didn’t anticipate is that so few of the users would answer.
So, if you haven’t checked your email for ages, please do now. If you know someone who has not, please contact them, on their aktivix email address, and on other means if they don’t answer within a day.
Use it of loose it, right now there are over 90% of aktivix email addresses up for deletion if no one manages to answer for them by sending an email to admin from them.
Thank you for your collaboration …

As for horde – webmail is really only a backup for those occasions when you are not sitting in front of your own computer. Of course if you do not own a computer you do need to use the web alternative, but if you have access to the same computer/s regularly, you are encouraged to have a copy of thunderbird for you especially if you want to easily use encryption and other nice bits, like .. read on.

I have found that getting the aktivix outgoing server to work can be a challenge on ThunderBird. This is a run of the settings to look at.
On Tuesday 16th December 2014, a large police operation took place in the Spanish State. Fourteen houses and social centres were raided in Barcelona, Sabadell, Manresa and Madrid; books, leaflets and IT material were seized; and eleven people were arrested and sent to the Audiència Nacional, a special court handling issues of “national interest”, in Madrid.
