How the Pearl saved my @ss this week

by Volker Weber

I have been connecting to my mail from abroad for a few years. What I needed was basic internet connectivity and then I could talk to my mail server. This time however, my mail server was invisible due to a DDOS attack on my DNS server - perfectly synchronized with my travel. This immediately killed every possible mail connection to the server, be it POP3, IMAP4 (IDLE), Exchange push (which I don't use) or Notes (dto.).

But I was having zero problems with my Pearl since those messages went through the BlackBerry infrastructure.


might be a reason not to host your own mail server - at home...
