      SMTP Server

      Due to the SkyUser SMTP server going down today we have ordered an additional HDD Just for the SMTP application as the problem was a disk space issue,

      This will mean at some point over the next 24hrs the SMTP/Radio/Game server will go down for no more then 30 minutes,

      We apologies for the downtime today and inconvenience the upgrade will cause,

      The SMTP server has been running for over 10 months with over 5,000 emails a day going through it by nearly 1,000 users.

      Re: SMTP Server

      Hey guys,

      Although I am no longer on Sky, I did use your SMTP server since you put it in and right up until about three weeks ago, and I just wanted to say two things:

      1 - THANK YOU! I have no idea why Sky - even with GMail - couldn't provide a decent server and yours has been wonderfully reliable;

      2 - Have patience guys - the Skyuser team do this for nothing, so when things do occasionally go wrong, bear with them. (Not that I'm saying that anyone _has_ been impatient, but... )

      Re: SMTP Server

      We have had an email to tell us that this work will happen at 8.15am 23/12/08 so try and hold off sending those emails

      We will have doubled the capacity, once this work has been done so hopefully we will not suffer from this problem again. How embarrassing was it logging onto the server to be greeted with a message, you have no disk space left.

      Re: SMTP Server

      Just a reminder, the SkyUser SMTP server will be down from 8.15am today, whilst we double the capacity of our storage space. If your SkyUser SMTP email is not sending, or authorising for approximately 30 mins today from 8.15am, this is the reason why.
