WPI email outage

OK, while I'm annoyed that the mail is out (and appears to still be out, though I can't be sure until I'm home), this amused me.

From IT's announcement of the outage:
Groups AffectedAll WPI E-mail users; Faculty, staff, and students
Impactmail1.wpi.edu is the primary mail server for WPI. While mail1.wpi.edu is unavailable, the following services will be impacted:

1. No incoming mail to WPI will be delivered
2. No outgoing mail from WPI will be delivered.
3. No internal server-to-server mail will be delivered.
4. Users will be unable to connect to the server from E-mail Clients. Users will receive "Connection refused" or other connection failure messages from their E-mail clients. This includes Pine, SquirrelMail (UNIX webmail), and other POP or IMAP clients.
QuestionsContact the Helpdesk by calling x5888 or
e-mail helpdesk@wpi.edu

Heh. That email link isn't going to be too useful, though, is it?

my favorite part about the WPI CCC is they email you when your connection comes back up.
