Fri Nov 15 11:30:10 PST 2002 — Mail Server Issues: Our mail server cluster experienced a brief failure this morning. We had a cascading failure which started in one of the SpamAssassin boxes and then led to failures on the mail server cluster, and then the other SpamAssassin box followed suit. During this time, most email handled by our system was unaffected, however some mail may have bounced and pop sessions may have failed to complete properly. At this time all services have been returned to normal.
We are in the process of re-architecting our mail server cluster and are addressing this problem, and others, as we design the new system. Once completed, these kind of failures will hopefully be a thing of the past. -Kelsey and Scott
