Brief scheduled maintenance June 7, 2014 (completed)

Between 10:00 PM and 11:59 PM Pacific time on Saturday, June 7, each of our hosting servers will be restarted. This will cause a brief interruption of service (less than 10 minutes) for each site at some point during this 2 hour period.

Mail arriving while a server is being restarted will be queued and delivered after a short delay. No mail will be lost.

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes. This is necessary to install a Linux “kernel” upgrade for security reasons.

This is the same type of maintenance that was done two weeks ago, but it’s not the same cause. A new, separate Linux kernel security vulnerability was announced on June 5, affecting all companies using Linux servers. It’s just bad luck that they were so close together.

Update 10:51 PM Pacific time: The maintenance was completed on all servers with approximately 5 minutes downtime.
