Mail Bans

     Last night when we had a server lock up owing to a kernel bug, there was an unforeseen consequence discovered today.

     It appears the mail server was bound to this server as the NIS server it was using for authentication.  This caused authentication to fail during this interval.  If you attempted to access the mail server too many times during this period, your IP address may be locked out now.

     If you are presently unable to access the mail server, in order to unblock you, I need to know your device IP address for the device or devices that can not access mail.

     To find this out, FROM the affected device go to our website, hover over “Web Apps“, and in the pull-down menu that results, select “Your IP address” from the bottom.  Let me know what that IP address is then I can investigate and unblock you if you are blocked.
