Malfunction: E-Mails from external contacts cannot be delivered

Message-Id: 201609282100
Time: since 09/28/2106, 7pm
Affected: Email users using Exchange or mailer.gwdg/mpg.de as imcoming servers
Impact: Mails from external contacts cannot be delivered

Due to a malfunction of the incoming mail relays of the DFN which the GWDG uses, incoming e-mails from “foreign” providers are not delivered to Exchange and institutional mailboxes since 7pm last evening. Mail traffic within the Exchange organization and systems using exclusively mailer.gwdg/mpg.de for incoming and outgoing mails are not affected.

We are working with the DFN mailsupport to fix this problem as soon as possible and are sorry for this inconvenience. When the problem will be fixed, all mail will be delivered with some delay.
