The Bishopthorpe.net email service is again out of action, and as before it’s due to an insecure email account being accessed and used to generate spam emails. We’ll try to restore the service as soon as possible, but in the meantime please try to ensure you keep your passwords secure and not easily guessable.
Bish.net email is a free service and was originally set up when few people had access to email services of any kind. In the years since then many alternatives have been made available and people have tended to switch to these other services instead, so it’s no longer a great benefit to provide free bish.net emails to the community. Because of this decline in use and the constant problems of keeping the service operational on a daily basis we are considering closing the email service. This would only happen after a period of notice to allow remaining users time to make other arrangements.
