How long does it take to forward an email? My previous provider it took minutes or seconds. Inhosting takes hours from my experience so far.

Thanks for posting your question. I'm sorry you're having issues with email forwarders. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Typically, forwarding emails is a very quick process.

However, the server that houses your account has been experiencing intermittent DDOS attacks for approximately 24 hours. If you'd like to read more about DDOS attacks please see our article:

Our systems administrators are working as quickly as possible to mitigate the attack and restore services as quickly as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
