We are aware that our post.merula.net server was slow / unresponsive between approx 5pm and 8:30pm this evening.
This was due to a customer sending a significant volume of SPAM through the server. We have blocked the affected customer and cleared the Mail Queue on this mail server. Service is now restored.
NOTE that there is a small chance of some outgoing emails being lost while the queue was being cleared – although we believe all legitimate emails have been sent OK.
IF you have sent an email during this time via post.merula.net and have not received a reply you may which to re-send it to ensure it has arrived
We apologies for any issues caused here
