Lightbulb Notify me when it's up!

This could save a good few column inches on these forums. Just put in the URL of your email service and an email address, and wait to be notified when the site's back up!

Hmm... I'm suspicious by nature.

So it's not simply to harvest email addresses then?

Just tried it with FF, IE and Chrome and it doesn't work!!!

Perhaps I need to ask it to notify me when 'notifymewhenitsup.com' is up !!!

It's not working for me either, which makes me think it's not working.

Two things come to mind

1) Hasn't been working for people, makes me suspicious that it's a "harvester"

2) And most important, if you need this service don't you think it might be time to look for another email service ?

Just a thought

On first glance. No thanks.

I prefer the opposite approach, have my e-mail client check my e-mail service daily. I am notified when it's down. When it starts working again I know it's backup. Mind you, that down is a rare situation with my current active e-mail accounts.

I don't need an questionable service that notifies me when it's up.

I was a little suspicious at first, but welcome Harry Fear.

https://notifymewhenitsup.com/?privacy

  • This domain was first used back in 2008 to serve a similar service to the one we are offering now.
  • By 2012 the domain was redirecting to alternative service dingitsup.com.
  • By 2015 the domain was no longer being renewed, which doesn't presently work.
  • In summer 2018, we took over the domain to reinstate the public service that was originally served here. Harry Fear coded the site in 4 hours on a sunny day in Bologna, Italy.

My thoughts exactly. Plus, if I have to use a service to notify me my email service is up, it's time to find another provider.
