Mail Server Performance Degraded

Some users are reporting problems logging into email through Webmail and other email clients. CISS is currently investigating the matter.

Update

This issue appears to be resolved. Work on the appliances that block virus and spam from reaching ISU accounts caused intermittent connectivity problems to email for some users this afternoon.

Update

Email delivery is currently very slow. Email sent through the university mail system will be delivered, but it may take longer than normal.

Campus Mail Performance Degraded

It has been discovered that @ilstu.edu accounts with forwards in place may have seen their outgoing mail delayed since the SMTP security filters were put in place on Friday, March 18. That problem has been resolved this afternoon, and all outgoing mail that had been queued up is now being sent. No outgoing mail was lost or rejected in this process.

Mail.ilstu.edu Performance Degraded

One of the blacklists used to block spam on the campus mail system became corrupted this morning, and caused a temporary problem where most email sent from outside the University was blocked by that blacklist as spam. Senders should have received a message back from their email service provider stating that "550 Denied by policy: Sender is listed on DNS-based RBL.". The corrupted blacklist was removed, which resolved this problem. The @ilstu.edu domain has not been blacklisted, although it may appear that way from the messages.
