Mail server down for 4 hours (oops!) 2006-12-28 21:27:12

Today we moved a few things around in our rack (hopefully getting a new half-rack cabinet with WHEELS soon), and apparently the mail server didn't like being moved while still running. Although the server was still pinging and accepting connections, it couldn't talk to its hard drives anymore and thus wasn't doing any real work. It's fixed now and the backlog of mail (99% spam, of course) should be done processing.
