Outlook Web Access, as well as Activesync, IMAP, and POP connections to the university email system are currently unavailable. This affects all mobile devices, users of Mac OS X and either Entourage or mail, and other email clients that use POP or IMAP. We are currently working on the problem and will update as soon as we know more.
This issue does not affect students with Live@EDU accounts.
Update from Matthew Stublefield at 1:50 p.m. on 2010-07-09:: Email is still inaccessible through anything other than Microsoft Outlook using an Exchange connection, but we continue to work on resolving this problem. The Enterprise Systems Administrator in charge of email is currently on the phone with Microsoft in an attempt to fix this problem, and another issue with the domain controller was fixed earlier today (though whether or not this was related to the email problems is unknown).
Unfortunately, at this time we do not have an estimate of when BearMail service will be restored. We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you updated as we receive further news.
Update from Matthew Stublefield at 2:01 p.m. on 2010-07-09:: And in proper Murphy’s Law style, soon after I updated that we still didn’t know what was broken, the problem was fixed. Email has been sent successfully from both an iPhone and Thunderbird. Comment below to let us know if yours is working or if you’re having any other problems!
