|Affected||Employees with mail in RU Exchange|
Monday morning several employees of FNWI were affected by a fault within the RU Exchange design whereby they could not send their mail to recipients outside of the RU Exchange (i.e. @science.ru.nl, @cs.ru.nl or elsewhere). ISC had added two additional servers to the RU Exchange service the week before, which were not yet allowed to drop their outgoing mail on designated servers for that purpose. Not all FNWI employees using RU Exchange were affected, however, since four out of six servers were still functioning properly and employees using e.g. Thunderbird use servers outside of the RU Exchange for sending their mails.
