Interchange Mail Services Unavailable, Thursday, October 11, 2007 10:00pm- UPDATE

We are proceeding with the migration of accounts to the UBC Storage Grid. We expect approximately half of the email accounts to be migrated successfully with no loss of email sometime tonight.

Unfortunately despite best efforts and our earlier assurances, we believe that we will be unable to restore all mailboxes. There are likely to be mailboxes that are irretrievably corrupted, and these will need to be restored from back up tapes. We anticipate that this may result in a loss of one day’s mail and a small number of new messages. We anticipate being able to bring the service back up by end of day Friday.

Please visit the Email Bulletins page for complete details and status updates.
