After deploying a server update, some minor errors were reported via email to the Intuiface staff. Due to a very high number of such notifications, our email servers were overloaded, causing us to reach the 24 hour email quota imposed by our email service provider, AWS. All emails were blocked, including all emails generated by the Hosted instance of Intuiface’s Share via Email Interface Asset.
In total, the blockage affected the following services:
The affected e-mails were either delayed or lost.
We asked our cloud provider (AWS) to increase our email quota.
At around 2PM UTC on the 21st of November, our email buffer was emptied and emails were once again correctly sent.
To avoid this email overload problem, we have separated our email servers. An independent server is now used to send (possibly very high volume) notifications to the Intuiface staff. As a result, internal notification emails will no longer interfere with the quota for emails created for and by our users.
