Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Please note that there was an unexpected disruption to Middlebury’s incoming email services this morning. The issue has since been resolved. Please see below for more details.

Between 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM (ET), Middlebury’s email system was unable to receive incoming email sent from external addresses. Email messages sent to @middlebury.edu and @miis.edu email addresses from external addresses were rejected by Middlebury’s email servers.

The problem was corrected at approximately 10:00 AM (ET). External senders should be advised to resend messages that were rejected before the problem was resolved.
