      SkyUser SMTP Planned Downtime Thursday 27th May

      We have had the following notice from our server hosting company.

      As part of our facility expansion and development, we are currently moving our dedicated servers into our new Turing data centre. This new data centre is a secure facility to which all access will be accompanied by Melbourne staff and features the latest infrastructure developments.

      As a result of this, we propose to move your server, riga, to the new facility between 10pm and 1am on Thursday 27th May 2010. Your server will be powered down, moved into the new facility, re-racked and powered. It will then be tested to ensure the resumption of full service. Please note that your server will NOT be offline for the entire duration of the maintenance window, and we expect machines to be offline for no more than 30 minutes each. There will be no IP changes necessary and all facilities, such as NAS, KVM etc, will be re-connected to the server in the new facility.

      Hi:

      Just come across this posting and wondering if it has any bearing on the problem I PM'd you about (re' smtp issues) on the 25th evening. My bro. has PM'd you about this too (with a cross reference to your truly) as he is the one actually currently unable to send from Outlook using his BT account for inbound and outgoing mail; the latter via the server here...

      He's getting the usual request for logon/password scenario; and also the outbound server had been reset to BT version... He has no knowledge of when this actually happend and didn't do it himself... He PM'd you re' confirming his logon/password details for the smtp server; and is hoping you can/will respond (please).

      Appreciate you is likely tres occupe/busy now... with imminent serve tweaks etc...

      As always...

      Many thanks...

      Hi lms2k3

      This issue has now been resolved. There needs to be some text in the subject box, or the SMTP server would just bounce it back.
