This issue is now marked as resolved.
You may have seen this thread regarding file systems errors on the Echo Server: http://forums.mddhos...dow-is-2-hours/ [If not, I suggest giving it a quick read].
The system is not reporting the file system as damaged, however, the file system is obviously damaged from the standpoint that it's getting to where new folders cannot be created in specific locations. While it is theoretically possible that this is fallout from the previous damage - we suspect there to be a silent corruption issue on the server.
Due to this we are going to be migrating accounts off of the server as soon as possible to avoid/prevent further damage to customer data. We are going to do our absolute best to keep IP addresses the same so that this transition is as seamless as possible. There may be a brief period [up to an hour] where you are unable to connect to email or FTP at the server hostname, however, we will also be re-routing this IP to the new temporary server as well to restore this without DNS propagation as well - you may experience SSL Certificate Warnings which you can safely ignore/accept.
While we apologize for any trouble this may cause you we do appreciate your understanding while we take immediate action in order to protect your data integrity and your services with us. Without taking this action the server could, at any point in time, go read-only or complely crash/lose data and we want to avoid this if at all possible. We do have backups of the server and will have those on-hand just in case.
We are going to be sending out an email to all affected clients regarding this issue.
