The outbound relay systems have been maintaining expected behavior and performance today. The incident is being marked as resolved; however, the team continues to monitor and investigate yesterday's problem.
High traffic from foreign IP addresses was blocked, but this is not considered the root cause of the problem. The high traffic contributed to the issue, and additional resources have also been implemented to mitigate a recurrence. Thank you.

The backlog of outbound queued email has been processed. A definitive reason for the outbound processing slowing down has not been identified, and we will continue to closely monitor the situation. At this time, the outbound relay should perform as expected.
The team will continue to examine the situation and watch for issues when normal business hours open in the morning. Thank you.
