Incoming Email Service  Reply with quote  

Incoming email was unavailable from approximately 7:10pm to 11:10 EST. The email server was reset and services returned to normal.

We will be looking into what caused the outage and why our own call tech was not paged properly.

During this time, there was an unusually high number of constant connections to the pop server (over 3000 per second) which basically prevented most other users from connecting to it. This performed like a DoS (Denial of Service) attack. The server was reset many times during this period of time with no noticible effect on those connections. These connections returned to normal around 11 pm EST.

Email was still arriving on the server, it was just unable to be retrieved by users.
