And we're back

The new server is up and running, with the majority of services having been restored and all accounts have been recreated on the new server (which is 4 times as big and 8 times as powerful as the previous server). The new server has two hard drives, with an 80GB for backups. We will be initiating automated backups as soon as possible, though it's still in all client's best interest to maintain their own backups as well.

The SPAM blocking and anti-virus scanning software are now being reinstalled as I type this, so the SPAM that you've likely seen today will be stopped very shortly. Email accounts were recreated to the best of our ability, though due to privacy concerns we didn't have access to personal passwords, and those had to be changed. Please contact me with any questions.

A reverse DNS record, or PTR, was requested more than 24 hours ago but hasn't been implemented by the NOC. I've put in another ticket on this, as some email will be rejected by other mail servers without one.

More updates will be forthcoming as they are available. Thank you all for your patience during this time.
