Due to a reconfiguration, the University’s antivirus gateway stopped forwarding email. The system was rebooted, and the problem was cleared. A slight email backup occurred, which was cleared in 1-2 hours.
The ASUPS web server was moved into the server room today, since the University calendar system developed by ASUPS has become an official service.
During the implementation of e-mail routing changes on 2/2/04 the MX record for the ups.edu domain on the internal DNS server was inadvertantly disabled.
This problem has been fixed and a backlog of messages, held by the anti-virus gateway are now being delivered.
A high volume of messages has been noticed in the queues of the anti-virus gateway. The cause of this situation is not clear. Currently message are taking anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours to be delivered. One cause may be the high volume of virus/worm traffic.
