All service notices are posted here.

June 28 - We have updated our mail and website certificates.

June 27 - We have completed the infrastructure upgrade, you should not have noticed, but Cotse is now on new hardware and there is increased capacity ready for the next phase of the overall migration into the CodaMail environment. The end result will be that Cotse will become the premier service on CodaMail, it will have all of CodaMail's features, fewer restrictions, increased number of aliases, larger quotas, along with features and services only available to Cotse subscribers. We are moving in stages with this to properly stress test each step, our over-all target is currently fall 2024 for completion.

June 23 - We have addressed an issue with our mail filters for handling the new gateway, if you had some previously blocklisted mail addresses that recently received some mail when they should not have, this was why and it has been corrected.

June 12 - You may notice a change in the headers for some cotse domains as they are now traversing a different gateway, this is the first step in migration to the new setup. We are taking things slow to ensure this migration happens as seemlessly as possible. Our goal is that you don't even notice until you see the new features appear.

May 31 - Cotse web and email will be unavailable this evening for routine maintenance for 30-45 min around 9pm EST.

Apr 3 - The host1 cpanel webhosting server is back online on an upgraded host, accounts are restored. Those using host1 do not need to do anything.

Apr 3 - NOTICE - Someone is watching our notices and sending phishing campaigns based upon them. We have never sent links in email for this reason. Any mail you get that appears to come from us needing you to click something is fake. When in doubt, check with helpdesk.

Apr 3 - now supports spf, dkim, dmarc, and mta-sts. It is getting near to when we will be merging cotse into CodaMail. If you'd like to use CodaMail now, contact helpdesk.

Phishing: We are a constant target of phishing e-mail. We will never send you formatted e-mail, we only send plain text. We do not send links for you to click. Do not follow links or click things in emails. Manually come to our website and check notices, to make a payment, etc. As always, email helpdesk if you have questions.

Reminder: Because we are a privacy service, we do not back up your personal e-mail. This means that when you delete it, it is irretreivably gone. It is not floating around in some backup that can be retrieved from us against your will. However, it also means you must download and save your important mail, if you delete it, or we suffer a data failure, we do what we can with recovery tools, but we most likely cannot restore it.

For optimum privacy with the service use a pop3s mail app and set it to delete the mail from the server after retrieval. We also recommend that your local mail store be an encrypted volume. Once your mail is removed from the server by your mail app, we no longer have a copy, no mail backups and we are deliberately not with a large cloud service, instead opting to keep everything in-house, for the same reason. This puts you in full control of your mail and its privacy. When you delete it, it can't be retrieved and there is no record of it being there.
