Announcements pertaining to Writing.Com!
On June 15th, Writing.Com will be upgrading to a brand new email server. It is time for our site to move up to a bigger, better machine and this upgrade will allow us to retire our current email server, which is a bit over three (3) years old.
Due to the enomorous size of our email service, the move will mean some time of inaccessibility to your email services on Writing.Com. While we transfer approximately 70+ Gigabytes of email data from the old email server to our new one, you will not be able to access your Writing.Com email account or its contents.
Access to your Writing.Com email account will be unavailable from approximately 12:15am through 6:15am Eastern Time on Thursday June 15th. We will do our best to minimize the amount of time that your email is inaccessible, but please do plan accordingly for this scheduled six (6) hour email service upgrade.
All email in your account will be transferred exactly as is from the old server to our new one. This includes your inbox and all email folders, including your sent mail and trash folders.
No loss of email is expected from this move. During the time that you are unable to access your email, the email server will still receive new emails for your account and hold them until we re-open access to member email accounts.
The upgrade will affect access to email services only and during the upgrade, all other Writing.Com services will be unaffected and fully available.
After the upgrade is completed, you should find no differences in your email account, (though accessing it may be faster). No changes to the interface are planned for this upgrade.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this the email upgrade. Thank you for your support!
