Early Monday, May 23, the process to better balance the load on the various mail servers continues. This includes moving some user mail files from their existing servers to other servers, which have been upgraded. The change should not be apparent to users, except for more reliable access.

Over the next few weeks, the rest of the servers will also be upgraded. Users will then be moved to the upgraded servers overnight. This method has been used in the past, as it is nearly transparent to the user community with no down time.
