Mail server at least partially down

Bytemark, who host the web and mail server, have been listed by Spamhaus as being the originators of Spam email.

It looks like it is one user whose Virtual Machine on one IP has been compromised but Spamhaus have listed the whole of Bytemark's IP blocks.

It is rather unlikely that mail will work in any consistent way as most ISPs (including Bytemark themselves) check against Spamhaus so their own internal mail will bounce.

I have left them an urgent message and hopefully this will be sorted out before the end of the weekend but the situation may persist into Monday 17th.
