Gandi Mail Heavy Load

The Gandi Mail service is currently under heavy load due to a multitude of botnets in Asia (principally India, Iran, and Vietnam) and Eastern Europe.  As a result the number of connections to the Gandi Mail service is multiplied ten-fold resulting in disruptions of service.  We currently do not have an efficient technical solution to deal with this kind of traffic anomaly.  We are investigating possible solutions and will be deploying them in the coming days.


We apologise for the inconvenience caused.


Update 3 October 2011, 16:30 CET:  Although the heavy load has subsided for the time being, we are leaving the service status indicator in orange for the time being while we monitor and attempt to implement a reliable solution over the coming days.
