      You dont know how much you rely on something until its gone. keep wanting to email people and thinking "ah cant just yet!"

      Hopefully they will get things sorted, cant be easy when you have a day job.

      Yes, same as the other day.

      Attempt a telnet on port 25:

      421 Cannot connect to SMTP server 77.240.11.49 (77.240.11.49:25), connect error 10061

      Re: SMTP Server down again 31-01-2012

      Sorry about this guys, we had major server problems last night, and at 3:30am this morning, I had to authorise the hosts to replace a hard disk drive.

      Although it wasn't the SMTP server's HDD this may have had something to do with it.

      I have just restarted the server again.

      I would have seen this earlier, but I was goosed.

      There is still something wrong with this, as it has crashed again.

      We are looking into it as we speak.

      It would appear that someone's exchange server (one of our SMTP users) is flooding our server with spam.

      I have blocked 2 user's access to the server, as they are sending out tonnes of spam.

      I would not be surprised if we end up on a few blacklists because of this. There were literally thousands in the queue.
