Tue May 14 21:35:27 PDT 2002 — A runaway procmail script caused some mail servers to sporadically refuse SMTP connections. Some customers may have received a “Connection refused” error message while trying to send email. The issue has been resolved.
Sonic.net’s load-balanced array of six mail servers is designed to handle issues such as these. Our mail load is such that we can run on three mail servers and still continue to process mail in a timely fashion. -Matt and Russ
