Secondary mail exchanger upgrade

17 October 2019 17:57:17 +0000

We have switched from using our old secondary MX (server NC020) to a newer server (server NC037) with modern software and better spam filtering and blocking. This information is only applicable to those clients who use our secondary MX in the DNS for their domains. It does not change anything for any clients who get their primary mail service from us, and should not change anything for those clients who use our secondary mail server to handle incoming email when their primary mail server is down.

For your information, the IP addresses of the new secondary MX are as follows:

  • IPv4: 50.23.135.218
  • IPv6: 2607:f0d0:2002:15::a

If you have any questions please contact NinerNet support. Thank-you.

Mail server latency issue resolved

30 September 2019 23:25:22 +0000

This issue on server NC036 appears to have been resolved, although we are awaiting official confirmation from the data centre. Should there be no change of status this issue will be closed with no further update here.

As always though, if you have any issues or concerns please contact support. Thank-you for your patience.

Email server (NC036) latency issue

30 September 2019 22:28:56 +0000

We are aware that connections to the primary mail server (NC036) are slow to the point they are timing out. We are told by the data centre where this server is located that this is an infrastructure issue of which they are aware and on which they are actively working.

We apologise for this temporary inconvenience. We will post further updates here as necessary or when the issue has been resolved. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact support. Thank-you.

NC036: Maintenance complete

10 June 2019 15:11:11 +0000

Our scheduled maintenance to increase the storage space available for email accounts on the mail server (NC036) is complete, after a delay completing the final step. The ability to send and receive email was not available between 19:23 and 20:19 UTC on 8 June. The expanded disk space has been tested and all is running normally.

If you have any issues or questions, please contact NinerNet support. Thank-you.

NC036: Scheduled maintenance underway

8 June 2019 19:15:56 +0000

The scheduled maintenance to increase hard drive space on server NC036 is underway. We will post progress reports or notice that the maintenance is complete as necessary.

NC036: Scheduled mail server maintenance

7 June 2019 16:00:22 +0000

During this weekend’s maintenance window we will be adding hard drive storage to server NC036 to continue to provide more storage space for a growing number of growing email accounts. This maintenance is scheduled to start at 19:00 UTC and we anticipate it will last less than one hour.

During the maintenance the ability to send and receive email will not be available, both via standalone email programs (e.g., Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) and the webmail. Incoming email will be queued on the sending servers until our server is back online again, after which it will then be delivered to our server and your email account. This may result in a delay longer than the planned hour of the maintenance though.

Please monitor this status page to be notified of the start and end of the maintenance. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact NinerNet support.

Thank-you for your patience as we continue to work to improve our services to you.

NC023: Secondary issue resolved

12 March 2019 20:26:33 +0000

The secondary issues referred to previously were not issues at all. A single test out of several failed, but the failure was unrelated to this server.

This issue is now closed. We apologise for any inconvenience this emergency maintenance may have caused while the server was offline between approximately 13:26 and 14:03 UTC.

If you have any questions, please contact support. Thank-you for your patience.
