Server Upgrade Complete


As a follow-up to my blog post from last week, everything I said we were going to do is now either complete or underway. We’ve reconfigured all of the servers that were having problems at the beginning of last week, we’ve put new servers online, and we’ve placed the order for the 50 new servers we’re going to put online in order to build a plethora of excess capacity into our email hosting system.
