Scimail update

An update from Science Computing:

Scimail is up - after migrating to some old hardware. So now it is very slow.

There may be problems with missing inboxes since the drives that were hosting the mail folders was corrupted.

Also ongoing sending problems due to load on the outbound channels.

Scimail is offline

On Monday November 24th Scimail had a hardware failure and was cobbled back together using other resources. Unfortunately it was not a single failure - there are now other problems involving the data on the disks and failures in mountpoints. This also means we have lost all web services since scimail is also the web server.

Science Computing is working on the problem.

Expected up time is 12 p.m. - but no guarantees on meeting that deadline.
