If you’re trying to send email to @gov.pe.ca 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 gov.pe.ca that was received and acknowledged suggests this is true.
