Dreamhost mail server down for over 24 hours

The Dreamhost mail server I’m assigned to has been down for over 24 hours… and it’s still down! Luckily, I have mail forwarding setup so that everything is mirrored to my gmail account (and that is still working).

It seems that every time I setup a new service on Dreamhost, it mysteriously goes down. When I initially setup letsmakegames.org, the webserver went down for a few hours. This time I had just setup a new email address.

Rather than saying “I hope it’s not me“, I’ll stick with “I hope this doesn’t happen again“. It make me disinclined to use shared hosting.

Update: Almost 36 hours and no resolution!

Update: Finally working after approximately 39 hours!
