Is Twitter Mail having a problem?

Bird National 26-Aug-2011 08:57:19

Emails sent through twitter aren't landing at twitter and haven't been for the past couple of hours, is it you or me that's having a problem?

Same problem here... I haven't seen one go thru since last night.

Also having this same problem. Seems to be a wide spread outage.

Hi all, it seems that some of you aren't able to use Twittermail. Our apologies for the inconvenience. We'll look in to it and get back to you asap!

Frederick Scanner 29-Aug-2011 11:56:42

Thank-you Jorg. It appears as if your email gateway is down or just not accepting inbound email from us. My SMTP server times out trying to send to you.

The Twittermail suffered an outage which forced us to reset the server and check everything. The service is back up again, but Tweets might still be delayed due to the high volume of email it's receiving.

I'm seeing "connection refused" again. Are things still getting caught up or is the problem back again?

Meteo24-Culemborg 01-Sep-2011 13:41:52

Here the same "no connection", from about two hours ago until now. The problem I think is back???

Same problem here again. Since this thread is marked "Answered" do we need to start a new thread to be heard?

The Twittermail service was down again. The server has been rebooted and we're monitoring the situation. It appears the server is suffering from intermittent spam attacks, which cause everything to lock up.

As this is the second time in a short period we're working on a better solution. We've implemented more spam filters and are engaging spammers more actively.

The service could become unavailable again in the next few days as we change the setup to account for higher usage and other variables.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.
