Are email notifications working? I haven't had any since the outage on the weekend.

Hi Mal,

when the main server went down, Andrew had to switch the forums to the backup server.
while we're on the backup servers, all sorts of things wont work right.
email notifications of any kind are on the things that dont work.

should be fixed when the main server is back up.

As far as I'm aware, emails are the only thing not working. The main thing is that the forums are up and working for everyone.

<technical>The issue is actually the data connection to the main server and the problem is in the hands of Telstra</technical>

Hey Mal,

Email notifications not working go hand in hand with the issue discussed here, with regards to the error that appears when posting.

Telstra have advised that they expect to have the issue resolved today, the ETR is close of business, and then afterwards the website and forums will need to be moved back to the primary web server.
