Webmail was down

So email wasn't working earlier today for a bit. This is the email they sent out:

Good afternoon
We are currently having issues with accessing webmail from mobilenet, the residence halls and from off campus. We are working to correct the problem and will notify you of any updates.
We apologize for the inconvenience. 
Pretty standard, but I have a few issues with it
1)  How were we supposed to see an email about our email not working if our email wasn't working?
2)  If email was not accessible from mobilenet, residence halls, or from off campus, where was it available from?  I'm assuming nowhere, so why not just say that it wasn't available at all...
3)  Everyone should use Gmail

That is all.


  1. I totally agree about Gmail. All the cool schools use Gmail for their school mail...

  2. gmail is god.

    (in fact, i'm using my google account now to leave this message)

  3. i use the mail application on my macbook, and mysteriously still got all my emails. CONSPIRACY TO GET EVERYONE TO SWITCH TO APPLE?!?!?!?

  4. my macbook mail app won't let me send emails anymore though :(

  5. it was down in the alba program in italy

  6. also if no one could access it, who sent it, and how?
