[Postponed] Scheduled database replacement and downtime underway

We’re getting ready to stop all email services in order to switch to the new database servers.

We will redirect www.runbox.com and beta.runbox.com to this blog so you will be able to follow our updates.

Once we have stopped the services we will import into the new database the records that have been added/changed since the full import we did last night,

Then we will move the database service address to the new servers, and start them up. If all goes well, the email interfaces will be started shortly thereafter.

UPDATE 07:10 AM CET: IMAP and POP services stopped. Stopping database services.

UPDATE 07:19 AM CET: Starting import of database records that have been changed since last night’s full import.

UPDATE 08:09 AM CET: During the import we discovered records that will need to be converted to another format. The safest solution is to revert to the old server and reschedule the switch once the conversion is done. We will inform everyone when this will occur.
