Mail services only partially available

Due to unathorized use of a user account our mail server has been used as a spam relay. This has been done using falsely authorized SSL/TLS protected connections from a botnet outside the university network. This has accumulated a queue of more than half million e-mail messages. It will take at least a few hours to clean the queue from the spam messages.

Update at 16:25: Cleaning of the queue takes longer than acticipated, estimated time of end of break is 20:30.

Update at 20:30: Still more time needed, estimated delay until midnight.

Update at 22:40: The queue has now been cleaned and mail is again flowing in every direction.
