Province of PEI Email Outage

If you’re trying to send email to email addresses (inside the provincial government here in Prince Edward Island) and your email is bouncing back, it’s likely because of a server outage they’re experiencing today. I just got off the phone with the Help Desk there, and they indicated that there was a power outage in the Aubin Arsenault Building and that, as a result, GroupWise email and other network applications inside government aren’t operating properly. They hope to have the problem corrected this morning.

Chuckle. I thought the headline said “email outrage”, so I clicked through to read more. Just goes to show how we’re attuned to news about scandal and crises.

I got word back from the Help Desk that the problems should be cleared up by now; a test email into that was received and acknowledged suggests this is true.
