Dear American InfoMetrics Customers,
After 22 years* of operation, it is time for us to begin shutting down most of our Internet Service. Several current issues are making it necessary to expedite this process; 1) Google has purchased the Postini e-mail filtering service. The service has been terrific and unmatched at keeping the flood of SPAM and viruses at bay. They are no longer providing service to providers our size. 2) Our upstream hosting company, after 12 years, will not negotiate a lower minimum monthly fee.
* We began an e-mail-only service in 1992 followed by the opening of our full-service ISP in 1994.
Will my email@example.com e-mail continue to work?
Yes. If you want to continue using us for your e-mail, we will create e-mail accounts at the new hosting service using your existing user ID and password. Let us know if you want this. If not, you must find a new e-mail host and address. Once you give us your new e-mail address, we will forward all e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org to your new address for 60 days. All other domains hosted by us must find another e-mail host; we cannot forward to these domains.
What about domain name registration?
We can continue managing your domain name if you registered your domain through us. Once you find a new host for your domain website, send us the names of the name servers and we will make the appropriate changes.
What about the website you host for us?
We can transfer your website to our temporary, 60 day, hosting service. The features of your current website might not be compatible with any other hosting service so we cannot guarantee how the transferred site will look or operate. We can, at your request, furnish you with a free CD/DVD copy of your website by sending your request to email@example.com .
What about multi-month service fees?
You will be refunded the balance of unused service. Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When will the plug be pulled?
At midnight Friday October 28.
When e-mailing, make sure to include your account information and phone number.
Thanks for being our customers!
Andrew and Barbara Goreff
