What happens to any email being sent to addresses hosted on these servers at the moment?

Do they get bounced back as undeliverable, or are they being stored somehow or what?

That's entirely up to the sending mail server - most servers will queue outgoing mail for up to 72 hours and attempt to deliver the email once per hour or so.

As someone who has experience with half a dozen hosts - I am happy in the knowledge that MDD continues to deliver the best service around - and when attacks like this happen (which they inevitably do) - they are promptly resolved.

Same here, we are lucky to have Mike onboard. Many hosts would have just ignore us, and our backups

Very true. You only need to visit some of the admin forums around the net to find some horror stories of well known hosts not restoring data or recovering servers when things turn to custard.

It's a pleasure knowing MDD Hosting has your back when it matters.

The server restoration has approximately 1 hour remaining. Once it is completed there is a good chance we will need to conduct a file system check which may take 2 to 6 hours depending on the state of the file system after restoration. We will update this thread once the restoration is complete to let you know if a file system check was required or not.

The restoration is completed, the server is rebooting and we will update you if a file system check is required.

I like mdd they have been pretty reliable.

But this is a disaster . I have 3 clients on this server. One of which is a nightmare. Whoever has caused this should be banned from the server. I hope this gets sorted very soon.

A file system check is indeed required, it could be as quick as 30 minutes or as slow as 6 hours. I wish I could give a more accurate ETA but there is simply no way to do that.

Nobody is specifically responsible for a file system corruption.

It was a DDoS attack by hackers. Even Facebook and Twitter have been taken down by DoS attacks. That alone should provide some scale of how uncontrollable and undefended these attacks can be.

The DDoS didn't directly cause the file system corruption however, but your point is still valid about DDoS/DoS attacks.

Update at 6:28 AM GMT-5:
The file system check completed and due to the repairs done we're running an additional file system check to ensure that once the server comes back online that it is stable and doesn't have to be taken back offline for another file system check later today or in the near future.

The first check took approximately 50 minutes and we estimate the second check will take approximately the same amount of time.
