Email problems? You’re not alone

Campus email systems suffered intermittent interruptions throughout the day Tuesday.

IST’s website first said the problem “is believed to be MySQL related,” then pinpointed it as a network issue. Later, the diagnosis changed again: “Investigation points to a possible storage issue.”

Faculty, staff and students can track the outage on IST’s system status webpage. A 2 p.m. update said “IST staff is continuing to work on this issue. Estimated time of resolution is 2:45 PM.” A further update at 3:50 p.m. said that CalMail was returning to normal. At 4:18, more problems were reported.

Stay tuned.
