Hardware upgrade on server NC018

3 September 2010 21:36:09 +0000

To improve the performance of server NC018 and to address recent issues with this server, we will be adding more RAM to the server during our weekly maintenance window this weekend.

Server NC018 will be taken offline at approximately 19:00 UTC on Saturday, 4 September during this process, and will be offline for 30-45 minutes.

During this time, any inbound email destined for your account will be held on the sending mail servers until server NC018 is online again, at which time it will be delivered. No email will be lost.

If you have any questions or concerns about this maintenance, please contact NinerNet support. Thanks for your patience.

Implemented blocklists on server NC020

3 September 2010 21:29:39 +0000

As part of the ongoing reconfiguration of the relay and secondary mail servers on server NC020, we’ve implemented use of blocklists — the same blocklists that have been in use on server NC018 for several years. As expected, we’re already seeing a pay-off from this, with spam being rejected.

This implementation of the blocklists should not result in clients using the relay server being blocked, even if their IP address appears in the blocklists we’re using. However, if you use the relay server to send email and should you experience any problems trying to do so, please contact NinerNet support immediately.

Relay/secondary mail server operating smoothly

2 September 2010 07:34:14 +0000

Based on monitoring over the last three hours or so, the reconfigured relay/secondary mail server on server NC020 is running smoothly. We’ve sent email to the administrative contacts of all clients using this server for these purposes requesting feedback.

As always, if you have any concerns or problems, please contact NinerNet support for assistance. Thanks for your patience as we improve the configuration of this server to better serve you.
