Hi everyone,

We're currently investigating reports of email issues affecting Reckon Accounts Hosted.

Early investigation is showing that outbound emails are being sent from the Hosted service but not being delivered to the recipient.

This affects recipients in the To, CC and BCC fields.

Our Hosted team is currently looking into this as we speak and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this is causing at the moment.

Further updates and more information to follow.

    Paula - print to a pdf from Reckon - then email it from Outlook or whatever email client you use.  At least that will keep you ticking over in the meantime.

    Hi Angela,
    Unfortunately this is affecting all forms that are sent outbound from Reckon Accounts Hosted at the moment.

    ** UPDATE 2:55PM (AEDT) **

    We're about to commence testing a potential fix which we're confident will resolve the cause of this problem.

    If the results of this testing is positive we will be looking at rolling this out to the full Reckon Accounts Hosted service in its entirety.

    I'll keep you all posted on this. Thanks again for hanging in there while we get this sorted.

    Is anyone else experiencing completely non-functioning Reckon Hosted? Nothing is working while this "Fix" is being done.

    Pat,
    I've just logged in and created some invoices, purchase orders and created a few reports. All was working fine with the exception of outbound emails as mentioned above.

    If you're having trouble with operations outside of email, I'd recommend logging out in the first instance before trying again, secondly checking if there are any active sessions in your Hosted control panel and logging them off before logging out and trying again in 2-3 minutes.

    ** UPDATE 4:25PM (AEDT) **

    Hi folks,
    Unfortunately rolling this fix into the Hosted environment is proving more problematic than anticipated. We're continuing to work on this aspect, and at the same time are also looking at developing a more permanent solution which is to create a new build of the Hosted mail client.

    Work is ongoing at this stage. I'll let you know of a further update as soon as I can.

    Thanks everyone.

    Has someone cleared the email server out? It has probably reached maximum capacity.

    Rav this isnt good enough. Without email I cannot run my business and run the risk of loosing clients/customers. This is now urgent as it has been down for at least 7 hours now.

    Seriously this is now getting ridiculous. This email system has been working for years now. It shouldn't take this long to find a fix. we are all trying to run businesses here and this is so disappointing! Please give us an update.

    When you go to print the document, if it automatically goes to the print screen, just press cancel and it will show you the document. Next to the printer icon in the top right hand is a download icon. Just click that and save a PDF to your computer without having to print and scan.

    Paula,
    There are a couple of options to save an invoice as a PDF copy.

    As you've mentioned, the first is to select print and select the destination as Save as PDF rather than your printer.
    Screen capture of this process HERE

    If you'd rather not go down that route, the second is to select Save as PDF from the File Menu then download the PDF using the Hosted floating toolbar.
    Check out my screen capture HERE to view the process. In all honesty this option probably takes more clicks and time as opposed to the first.

    ** UPDATE 13/11 9:00AM (AEDT) **

    Good morning everyone,
    As you're no doubt aware, this problem is still outstanding at the moment. The Hosted team were working late into the night in their efforts to incorporate a potential solution into the Hosted environment however unfortunately this has failed.

    We're going to regroup and attack it again this morning. 
    I'm really sorry folks, I know you've been putting up with this so far and I know how frustrating, not to mention inconvenient it is. Be assured, resolving this is our top priority.

    Further updates to follow.

    Hi Rav
    Can I assume that when this is up and running again, all documents that I have tried to email (but have not been received by clients/employees etc) will go through, or will I need to resend them all?

    Hi CK,
    I've just asked the team and the latest information I have at this stage is that any emails that have been sent from within Hosted since this problem started will need to be resent after we've got it back up & running.
