Mon, 22nd January 2007, 03:23

1&1 recently endured a week long mail server issue as a result of an "important update" to their mail server software.

1&1 states that no e-mail has been lost however there will be continued delays in service. A representative from the company stated there are millions of queued messages awaiting their systems to process.

The maintenance was entirely planned according to Press Chief Richard Stevenson, although there doesn't appear to have been any announcements regarding it made on their site. A large number of the 1&1 clientbase appears to have been affected by the issue. Both their SMTP and POP3 services were also down throughout the situation.

1&1 offers a complete range of web services from shared hosting to dedicated. Their guarantee is the highest product quality, top security and "unshakeable reliability".
