2008-01-20: 20:12 UTC     Rebooting 3 IMAP servers

Between 18:00 and 20:00 EST (UTC -0500) ms1.mxes.net, ms5.mxes.net, and ms6.mxes.net will be rebooted to change a kernel parameter. These are the scheduled reboot times.

  ms1.mxes.net 18:00 - Back up and accepting logins at 18:04
  ms5.mxes.net 18:45 - Back up and accepting logins at 18:48
  ms6.mxes.net 19:30 - Back up and accepting logins at 19:33

Downtime for each server will be 3 to 5 minutes. Expect IMAP and POP3 connection failures during this maintenance period. New mail will be queued. No mail will be lost.

We apologize for this service interruption.

2008-01-12: 04:00 UTC     Unresponsive server

At 21:35 EST (UTC -5) IMAP server ms1.mxes.net became unresponsive requiring a switch to its replica. The switch was complete and IMAP/POP3 access restored by 22:00 EST. All queued mail was delivered by 2300 EST. No mail was lost.

We apologize for this service interruption.

2008-01-01: 15:20 UTC     HP/Compaq Server Migration

Several months back we decided that all new machines would be HP/Compaq and most existing machines would be upgraded to HP/Compaq machines. Today we will switch customers that have accounts on ms1.mxes.net to its replica that has already been upgraded to HP/Compaq. Later in the week or next weekend we will switch to the new HP/Compaq primary.

The switch will take about 60 seconds and during that time customers on ms1.mxes.net will not be able to connect to the IMAP or POP3 server. No mail will be lost.

And last but not least, Happy New Year!
