4:05 PMEmail via Gmail and Yahoo mail, ect. (i.e. SMTP traffic) and email from "@uh.edu" alias accounts were not being delivered. Admins are investigating a possible problem with a mail queue that delivers these types of emails. Queues are currently being manually flushed to deliver the stored emails. In addition, there was a recent spam incident, which may be causing Yahoo and Gmail emails to be throttled, further delaying delivery times. ETR is currently unknown.Resolved: Email Service DisruptionMarch 12, 2014
