Anyone else getting errors on clara.net Pop3 server like rejected name or no response ? Nothing on the status page
At approximately 8:15 this morning (Monday 16th May 2005) power issues affecting a rack of equipment at one of our London datacentres would have interrupted access to the mail service for all customers collecting mail from pop.clara.net and corppop.clara.net.
Power was restored by 8:30 and we are actively investigating the cause of the failure. Claranet would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused.Followed by...
Note sure if this is related, but it arrived not long after...There are currently delays between receipt of customer mail by mailspool.clara.net/corpspool.clara.net and delivery of that mail to some customer mailboxes. In addition customers with filters redirecting mail away from Claranet mailservers may not be receiving mail at present.
We are actively working to address these internal delays and further updates will be posted as more information becomes available.
As of Thursday 19th of May 2005 support for the "bounce" functionality currently present in the Claranet mail filters will be removed.
Customers should be aware that existing filters making use of the bounce directive will cause mail to be silently dropped from Thursday onwards.
