Dear Client,
This notice is to alert all webmail mail users that there has been a recent flaw in our mail server. Due to this downtime most email relays will be delayed. Some accounts will be unable to receive mails.

Our technicians have fixed this problem but in other to migrate to the new server manual update is required from you as the email owner. This update is simple as it only requires you to login. Please click or open the link below and login to have your account successfully migrated to the newly repaired server.

Thanks for your understanding. Please remember that in a few days the old server will shutdown. Any email account that has not been updated will become unfunctional.


Again, the above e-mail is not a legitimate e-mail from Insight and should be disregarded and deleted from your e-mail.

Insight will “NEVER” ask you to email or go to a website and provide your information/ including password.

Always be aware and keep your system software and anti-virus up to day.
