Our virtual hosting network (mail1.ownwebnow.com) is experiencing performance issues at the moment. We are troubleshooting the problem but a performance profile has been unusually low since about 4 PM EST (GMT -5).

We will update this item as soon as the issue has been identified. In the meantime, we have added some extra horsepower to the cluster to keep it moving.

The issue is classified as critical due to the potential mail loss that can occur when the system loads across the cluster spike beyond a certain level and shut down the inbound SMTP channel. We do not expect this to happen but are working under the assumption that the further performance degredadation will shut the network down.
