HostGator fails Apple Mail w Processes limits?!

Nov 4, 2013 by anonymous
I recently transferred nine URLs along with the accompanying email to host gator. There are approximately a dozen emails some of which are aliases. Apple Mail has a limitless connection and does not shut down server requests. Host gator restricts inbound server processes to 25 and then automatically crashes your website with a "500 Error."

They suggest multiple workarounds including a embedded cron  which closes all processes every 15 minutes. All of these workarounds are not sufficient for anyone running a substantial amount of email and HostGator feels it's appropriate to penalize you by pulling down your site.

Who's the best host out there that will allow us to use Apple Mail, multiple domains and unlimited email connections? As I am servicing some of this on my own and I'm not a technical expert, quality customer service is also important to me

Suggestions anyone? We left GoDaddy because their customer service has just gotten pathetic over the last year.

Both Inmotion and Hub hosters will not have limits to your email. Plus they have IMAP protocols that allow push to your mobile devices rather than POP3 that has to check for new mail every so often.
