Email down.

My email is down. I tried to directly check it at the myhughes account webpage but it just cycles to the home page whenever I click on the My Email tab. Any ideas? Have gone thru 3 chats and when they hear "email problem" they mysteriously disconnect! Have also sent 2 emails with no response. I don't expect much from this message either but at least it gives me something to do! 🙂




Thank you for reaching out again. There are no current reports of the email section being down. I will look into this to see if this is a new problem. In the meantime I would just clear your cache and cookies for whatever browser you are using. Also if you can, please test to see if it affects all browsers or just one. -Damian

You missed the part where I tried to log in directly at the myhughes website without using my mail system. I CANT LOG_IN!



After researching it appears your other Hughes email ( were associated with a different account that has been canceled. That Hughes email address along with using your Gmail account as a log in token both appear to have finally expired. Your current account would need a new email address set up. As far as why the email section is not loading, I am not sure as there are no website issues being reported.  I would try going to the email section logged in to the account you are using right now. - Damian  

Of course the old account was cancelled! You guys recommended that I switch to Gen5 service after 15+ years of Gen4. But that should not have cancelled the e-mail account, that should have been switched or at least an email sent telling the me (the owner) that it was going to be cancelled. I am getting all 3 of my gmail accounts without problem thru the Hughes server but the Hughes account obviously wasn't switched when you guys installed the Gen5 server. Here is a screen shot of the old account. Is it possible to have it installed on the Gen5 server under my account and I'll just put up the missing 6 days of emails?


Use any password you want. I'll change it later. By the way, the change in service was back in December, why would it take so long to cancel? If it was done at the time of service I could have gotten it corrected then rather than out of the blue. And why do your chat techs keep disconnecting? I only posted transcripts of 2 out of the 4 chats that I initiated.



You didn't just upgrade to Gen 5, you canceled the old account and had the Gen 5 upgrade installed on a completely different account. If it was a simple upgrade on the old account, the email associated would have stayed active. We do not transfer email addresses between two completely different accounts. There is no system in place for that. Normally, the email is canceled along with the service without much of a delay. My assumption is that it stayed active during the cancellation grace period. This is a grace period we give every account so they can re-initiate service if the customer changes their mind. Some can be longer than others, but almost all accounts get one. This is automatic and is not circumstantial unless an immediate shut down was specifically requested. This has to be specifically requested during the cancelation call as a normal cancelation does not fall under it. I understand having this said to you earlier would have helped. My guess is that the rep may have perceived this as assumed knowledge. I do apologize for the inconvenience.    -Damian  




As far as the live chat disconnecting, this can be caused by many different things. If you would like to start troubleshooting your service, we can explore what may be causing these disconnects. -Damian 

Follow-up on original post. Hughes still unable/unwilling to answer why usernames aren't re-usable after cancellation.
So, I attempted to create a new email account. Simple right? After creating a secondary account with the username jimjumper2 I attempted to create the email account. The on-line instruction didn't match what the screen I was seeing so back to tech support! I have spoken to 3 different techs and each is convinced that there should be a "checkbox" after logging in to the account that says " email created". Trust me it isn't there!!!! One tech even logged into the account herself and was flummoxed when she couldn't see it! It has now been escalated higher and assigned Case#151639097. They said to contact them in 48 hours and they might know something. Not getting my hopes up....



Correspondence for your escalated case will not be handled through here. Additional troubleshooting can be handled here after the conclusion of your escalated case, if needed. I do hope a resolution is able to be met -Damian 

NO! You guys are being obtuse! The old account has been deleted, gone, never more! I agree!!!

Why is the name unavailable to use for a NEW!! account? Notice, "New" account!!
