Affected Services: Central Email Servers Hosted on Generation 1 Servers are Degraded
Email Server Switch in Progress!Starting Sunday, July 13, 2014
We are currently engaged in switching all remaining customers from our old (degraded) Email systems to our shiny new Email Server Systems. These new email systems provide improved service, security, and reliability.
Webmail service (Roundcube, Squirrel) is not available for anyone on the old Email server (i.e., securemail2.gaiahost.coop). If you are a customer in urgent need of webmail access, please contact us through the urgent support phone 1-800-672-8060 x0. We will be able to prioritize your migration onto the new systems.
Inbound email and regular IMAP/POP3/SMTP are and have been active and working without interruption.
Customer Switch to New:
If you are having troubles logging in at all to the old server, it may mean you have been switched to the new one and you must update your Incoming and Outgoing server settings to the new and more simple:
Trying to log into the old email systems after the switch will result in your login failing.

Central Email Servers Hosted on Generation 1 Servers are DEGRADED12:00a US/Eastern: Sunday, July 13, 2014
Email service is degraded on our older Generation 1 email servers.
Currently only webmail service has been taken offline.
Inbound email and regular IMAP/POP3/SMTP are working.
We are working on this situation and will update as the service fully stabilizes or is migrated onto our new systems.
5:00a US/Eastern: Sunday, July 13, 2014
Regular IMAP/POP3/SMTP and incoming email continue to be stable and working. We are keeping webmail offline for now.
To resolve the degraded situation we are working on a mass migration of all customers still hosted on our older email systems to our new email systems.
This mass migration may take another 24-48 hours to finalize in a way that does not create anymore downtime.
Once the mass migration is complete you can expect some great improvements like: improved spam/virus filtering and much faster webmail and IMAP access.
If you are a customer in urgent need of webmail access, please contact us through the urgent support phone 1-800-672-8060 x0. We may be able to prioritize your migration onto the new systems.
