  • UPDATE @ 26th March 2020, 11:10 UTC - After re-enabling our mailstores to resolve this ongoing incident we have encountered a different issue and needed to bring the mailstores offline again in order to resolve this problem.

  • UPDATE @ 26th March 2020, 10:00 UTC - The mailstores have been re-enabled. At this time service is fully online and we will be monitoring for any impact which is currently expected to be better than previous days.

We will be performing emergency maintenance this evening to resolve outstanding issues on this platform.

A small number of users may encounter issues logging in to their account via POP/IMAP/Webmail during the maintenance window.

Mailbox outage

Title: Mail client Syncing Issue Date: Monday 23rd March 2020, 14:46 UTC

We apologise for the issues that some of our users are continuing to face when attempting to access their hosted mail accounts.

As things stand, any messages sent to your mailbox during this outage will continue to be delivered, however, access to these mailboxes remains limited at present.

Technical Summary:

--

On the afternoon of the 23rd March 2020 at approximately 14:52 UTC, one of our mail platforms encountered an operational error which subsequently sent a significantly higher load to other nodes within the mail cluster. To address this load, our mail team took the decision to disable individual mailboxes deemed to be causing excess load.

Replacement nodes have been introduced into the environment and accounts are in the process of migrating to these devices, however, due to the excess I/O introduced by the excessive load and the account transfers. We have had to temporarily suspend logins to certain accounts on affected nodes.
