I would really appreciate an insight into this odd problem I have run into. As much info as I have below, probably lots of it irrelevant.
I host a client's site. Have for years. For the last week, he has been unable to receive any email to his local computer.
It is fine on the server, and I can pick it up at my computer, the only differences being our mode of internet connection and ISP. So can others with various ISPs
He has a small office in a remote location and has a wireless connection, basically 3 networked computers, wireless connection via a dish on a pole outside his house which has a line of sight connection with a transmitter on a mountain top.
I don't know any details after that - wireless stuff is a mystery to me.
When his mail client sends and receives, my server gets that request, sends off the email but it just never arrives. No error messages at his end, nothing, no spam even getting though.
He is using Windows XP and Outlook Express and has made no alterations to his settings (he couldn't even if he wanted to, they call an outside tech to make a house call just to set up an email address!)
They called their regular computer tech - he can see no problems and he can pick up their mail via his ISP, but not when he connects his laptop to their wireless set-up.
His unhelpful ISP *sort of* accepts that the problem is not at our end. But say they can see no issue at their end and seem at a loss to know what to do.
Anyone ever run accross anything like this before?
