ECE mail delivery delays, (Sep 9-10, 2015)
Due to an automounter failure on the SMTP server, mail delivery to @ece.ubc.ca addresses stopped working on Sep 9 around 4 pm. The outage also caused Request Tracker tickets submitted via e-mail to be delayed as well.
The problem was rectified on Sep 10 at 10:30 am, and the delivery backlog has been cleared.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
We are working on adding more servers to handle mail delivery.
