I’m not entirely sure what’s going on right now, but the mail server for the domain — and all of the virtual domains hosted here — seems to be down. I’m assuming this is a temporary problem, but apologies go out to those folks who use this particular server anyway. I’d fix it myself if I could, but unfortunately it’s hosted at another location. Otherwise I’d just run down the stairs and give it a friendly kick in the side panel. The weirdest part of this outage is that if I traceroute to the mail server, the hostname resolves to an entirely different IP address than the one specified in the DNS. I’m wondering if it may be a firewall configuration issue. Please stay tuned. [ Update ] The server is back online again.
