RESOLVED / Dec 8: Temporary problem affecting incoming email

Dec 8 4:38 PM

We're working to resolve a service issue that is affecting email sent to Hushmail from Gmail accounts. Our servers are temporarily rejecting these emails due to a configuration error, which we expect to resolve shortly. Senders will receive a bounce message, and will need to resend their email. This service issue started at approximately 4:01 PM Pacific Time.

We'll post an update to this page as soon as more information is available.

Update 4:44 PM Pacific Time: Email from Gmail accounts to Hushmail is now being delivered successfully. This service issue is now resolved.

Update 5:55 PM Pacific Time: After further investigation, we discovered that the issue was more widespread. It actually had affected most incoming email, not only email from Gmail accounts.
