The University's incoming mail server ( may be taken down for emergency maintenance this evening. The maintenance, if it happens, will commence at around 5.30PM and may take up to three hours to complete. During this time users will be unable to receive or read their e-mail; they should still be able to send outgoing mail. The webmail client will also be unavailable, since it relies on this server for authentication.

Any incoming e-mail that's delivered whilst this work is happening will be queued by our backup systems and delivered later.
