Major email problem - jon_potter - 01-21-2003 11:06 PM

There seems to be a major email problem at the moment. I assume it's not just me and that other people are affected too. Postfix just seems to be outright rejecting all incoming mail. I have a couple of support requests in the queue but they've been at #174 and #181 for the last hour and haven't budged so I assume all the little happy dreamhost people have gone home for the night.

Anyone know what's going on?

We too have had probs the last few hours. Very very frustrating!

Just tried sending and receiving without a problem. The email I sent from my Yahoo account to my primary DreamHost hosted email account had arrived by the time I was able to alt-tab to Mozilla Mail and click Get Msgs.

My mailboxes are on jareth.

I'm not sure where all my mailboxes are but the ones on willum and ludo are all bouncing.

Even worse for me -- I'm locked out of interactive logins (my host: frigga). IMAP refuses my password too. My site is refusing connections.

"Total protonic reversal!"

What reason is Postfix giving for rejecting the mail? User unknown errors? Temporary deferrals?

Hi Will,

Unknown user errors. Needless to say the users DO exist (well, I haven't deleted them and they worked a few hours ago).

Here's a sample:

This is the Postfix program at host ludo.dreamhost.com.

Hm, my mailbox is on jareth, and I can't receive any email at all.

Support request has been in queue for the past 3+ hours, and shows no signs of moving forward.

Dreamhost have really dropped the ball on this one. The System Status page still shows everything as having been up for months on end. Where's the announcement telling us what's going on? Not good enough guys!

lol. The last time I checked the system status page, it was down. =) think that was last month or so.

In any case, I really don't pay too much attention to that page. I've never actually seen it say 'down' when something has been down. =/
