This needed an update. The PHP mail function was disabled shortly after we started the server move. Because we were and still are spending the majority of our time getting things back to normal we didn't have the time to keep tabs on the abuse. It got out of hand very quickly to the point we were getting multiple reports a day.

A solution is in the works for this. We have purchased a dedicated outgoing mail server, all free hosting mail will be routed to this server to be scanned before going out. SPAM will be discarded and the account suspended while normal mail will go through unaffected. We started working on this yesterday, we hope to have it testing in the next 2 or 3 days. If everything goes well, mail will be re-enabled next week.

On a side note. SMTP is unaffected by this change, you can still send out mail using SMTP or IMAP. A lot of scripts either support one of these two functions out of the box or have a plugin for them. If you can't wait until next week please check your script documentation or search for an SMTP plugin.

Thanks for the update Corey!

My Wordpress installation is using Google Apps/Gmail's SMTP servers for outgoing mail right now.

I believe we are out, but it will prevent us from getting back on it.

PHP mail has been re-enabled, we are testing the new outgoing server so there may be intermittent issues.

I won't be affected if I'm using Google Apps Mail right?

When sending emails in Google Apps Mail, it doesn't go through x10hosting at all, but rather Gmail so nope, this shouldn't affect Google Apps.
