mail server update at 4:15pm on Wednesday March 8, 2017

The departmental mail server will have software updates applied on Wednesday afternoon, March 8, 2017 which will require rebooting (the server will be unavailable starting at 4:15pm). Since some updates will be applied while the mail server is still up there may be some temporary issues with some software. We hope that any such issues will be minor and by doing most of the upgrading before bringing the system down the shorter downtime will be worth the potential minor problems. Please restart any programs if you observe problems during the upgrades (and please let us know at requests@math.toronto.edu, so we can investigate). We expect the mail server to be back up by 5:00pm.
