[monitoring] We implemented a resolution to the database locks. The email service has been restored. We will be continuing to monitor the situation.

[unresolved] We are seeing further locks of the email database and at the moment mail access is down. We have found a possible resolution and brought that into place, it will take effect when the current lock goes and access is restored.

We are unable to give a precise ETA on this but expect access to be restored this afternoon.

[monitoring] Our email database has been successfully brought back in to service now and email service has been restored. Some sent emails and incoming emails will be subject to delays as queues are worked through but we'd expect everyything to be back to normal in the next couple of hours. We will be keeping an eye on the queue levels to ensure that they do return to normal as expected.

[unresolved] To clarify, this issue is affecting ALL email access, not just webmail. Sending and receiving via a mail program and accessing webmail are all currently inaccessible.
