We use RackSpace for email and I'm also feeling "iffy" about their service lately.I feel like some people are not getting our emails and have also noticed some server notices were received by RackSpace but not delivered to my account. (Yes, I did ensure that spam filtering was disabled and it wasn't routed somewhere else within our account.) The whole thing is making us nervous as we rely heavily upon email always being available, especially with some of our bigger clients... we are going to be hosting it in house again as a result.
