No incoming or outgoing email was lost.
Technical background: Earlier today, the SSL certificates on our LDAP servers expired. This caused the LDAP daemon on ldap.eecs to hang, and refuse new connections. This cacscaded into a failure of part of IMAP system, and the IMAP daemon on imap.eecs similarly hung. We’ve managed to restart the daemons on both servers. Unfortunately, we’re running into a problem on the LDAP server, and are unable to install new, un-expired SSL certificates. As a result, we’re not completely confident that our LDAP servers won’t crash again, and take the IMAP server with it. Again, we’re continuously working on trying to fix this.
