System Maintenence Tonight.

Update: Maintenance complete

Tonight starting at 11:59pm SOC will be updating software on some of our core systems. The following services may experience brief interruptions:

  • Website hosting
  • IPv6 tunnels
  • Incoming and outgoing mail

We will also be upgrading the SSL certificate for imap.sonic.net from SHA1 to SHA256. This is the last of our SSL certificates that we need to upgrade so we don’t expect most clients to have problems, but very old mail clients may not support the new certificate.
