I was going to wait and wait before putting in a bad review, in the hope that such a simple basis service could be restored to how it once was (reliable!). But I guess after 5+ years its time to accept this is a complete waste of time. Bigfoot is dead, and shuffled off etc. Totally unreliable and I have refused to upgrade to the paid service because I can see its NO BETTER, so no point.

my experience is identical to first reviewer. In using them for years, they go down frequently and when they do they don't even respond.

Absolute rubbish, stay away from this provider, mails servers are always down, spam protection is a joke.
To give you an example of how bad Bigfoot are their servers are usually down at weekends, this happens 3 out of every 4 weekends.
Also their customer service is a complete joke, they never respond to any specific emails, they send out standard foboff emails which never answer your questions.
