Mail and Database Status Update

We've begun delivering mail that was queued up during our array failure outage. We've also enabled IMAP and POP3 access again, so users should be able to read their mail using their favorite mail client. It may take a couple days for all mail to be delivered; hundred of thousands of messages were queued up during the outage.

MySQL databases have been restored as well as we can restore them. Once we re-import all the databases into our MySQL server, we'll bring MySQL back online. A small number of users have irrecoverable errors with their databases; we will be contacting each of the affected users individually to work with them on recovering their data.
