Maintenance period for faster emails

June 2, 2009

From the department of small but nice improvements…

In the past, there’s been a minute or two delay in us sending you emails to let you know what’s going on. We don’t like keeping you waiting so after a short period of maintenance, we’ll be sending out emails instantly – no more delays.

UPDATE: we’re back online with speedy email delivery, after a very brief maintenance period of a couple of minutes.

    Hmmmm, still takes like 2-3 minutes till I receive an email. For example, I got a private message and didn’t get an email immediately, took like 3 minutes till I got it (working with gmail).

    Thank you guys. You have incredible client service here on 99 designs. I am proud to be a member!

    Daniel: we’ve just (today) invested more in our email infrastructure, so that delay should have been massively reduced.

    It’s always possible that mail servers between 99designs and your inbox can cause delays, and that’s obviously something outside of our control. But from our end we’re now seeing 0.5 second delivery times :)
