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?
