Webmail2.cazarin.com Relocation in Progress

posted Aug 7, 2018, 8:02 PM by David Bartholomew   [ updated Aug 7, 2018, 9:25 PM ]

  • 10:50PM COMPLETE all services restored. Email messages have been tested flowing in and out of the server.
  • 10:20PM UPDATE the relocation is process is complete, services are being restored to normal process.
  • 10:00PM Update relocation is in process.

Email Server Relocation Scheduled for Tuesday, August 7, 2018 after 10:00 PM (CDT)

We are moving the email server referred to as webmail2.cazarin.com in preparation for a huge and mandatory upgrade next week.  

The email servers have been replicating between Dallas and Minneapolis for more than two months. All data has been and will continue to be synchronized until the cut-over at 10pm tomorrow night.

During the cut over you may notice a brief impact on sending emails for a very limited time. Incoming email will not be impacted but will be delayed during the outage. We expect the outage to last much less than 60 minutes. To reduce the impact to our users we have scheduled the process from 10 to 11 PM, Minnesota time. 

This move is necessary to prepare for new security standards and compliance requirements that affect all users. In a week we will migrate to the new platform which will give you the newest platform that functions extremely well with all email clients and platforms.  The new platform also supports all security standards and requirements. 

Every effort is being made to minimize the interruption to services.  Cazarin Interactive will be monitoring throughout the upgrade and we will post an update on https://helpdesk.cazarin.com once the upgrade is complete and all systems are stable. 

If you experience issues after 11 PM (CDT), or you experience downtime longer than 60 minutes please phone the help desk at 763-420-9992 Option #2.   If we are unable to answer your call, please leave a detailed message so we can return your call as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Email Service Delays

posted May 11, 2018, 5:57 AM by David Bartholomew   [ updated May 11, 2018, 12:34 PM ]

**FINAL UPDATE ** 1:08 PM - The delayed messages have been all released and processed. All mail is flowing.
We thank you for your patience during this issue.

The email server had issues this morning with a huge spam hit. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of defense available. What happened was an email account's password became compromised. Someone obtained and then shared the password to an email account. Over 350 thousand email messages flooded the server over a short span. This caused extreme delays in processing messages. 

Today's activity raises the awareness of using complex passwords for all online accounts. We recommended that you use a different password for every account you own.
 
Update 9:55AM - The email spool is clear. This means all New incoming and outgoing messages are flowing.
Messages sent and received from earlier in the day will continue to flow until all are complete.

Update 9:21AM - We have identified the issue and are clearing the issue.

7:55AM - Customers are experiencing an email delay, on both incoming and outbound emails.
We are working to resolve this issue as fast as possible. We will post updates here.

All access to the blocked systems have been blocked and normal service has restored at 2:03 PM.
