Electrical outage

Our service went out somewhat briefly 11 July 2019. From 6-7 pm GMT our Upstream network provider had an electrical outage that affected their core equipment. Unfortunately 1984 and our customers were effected by the outage. Service was restored at 18:50 GMT and has been running bjútífully since. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Web mail misconfiguration

We hereby announce a systems incident spanning the time frame from April 11th to May 29th 2019. A default setting in a new web mail client which in some cases caused outgoing mail not to be saved to the "Sent" folder, as tradition dictates.

This setting was discovered in the late afternoon on May 27th and reparation was finalised at 10.04 GMT on May 28th. This setting may have effected the saving of outgoing mail from mail users using the web mail client named "Try the new beta Roundcube!" from April 11th to May 24th on the 1984 webmail site and those that used the default web mail client from May 24th until 10.04 on May 28th.
