After rapid growth during the first weeks of 2004, FastMail.FM over the last couple of days has struggled to keep up with all the new users. Therefore, today we installed 3 new high-end IBM servers, which has dramatically improved performance and ensures trouble-free operation in the future.
Update: one of the servers has a hardware fault, so has been taken offline. Full performance may not be achieved until this fault is repaired. We will provide an update shortly.
Update: the server has been brought back online, and FastMail.FM is now running a full speed again!
