Around 7:30am today the power failed in this part of Yuba City, our system dropped back to batteries, and ran until 7:50am or so, at which time the batteries ran dry.  After everthing came back up around 8:40, 1 of the servers here suffered a hard drive failure, and the mail server came up in a failed state.  Mail is currently rebuilding its array, and should be fine shortly, and I have moved services off the other machine.  Its still running just slowly, but that repair won't affect you guys.
So, 10:27am, mail is almost done rebuilding, and the other server (virtual host 01) is getting fixed soon.
Power is my curse lately.  Sorry again!
10:35am, the mail server is happy again
(oh yes, wanted to add, Since last week I have been working on a new mail server, with new fancier features.  I think the old server knows it)

Email is (was) broken!!!

Yes, Sunday morning, at around 05:23 the mail server power backup failed. Yes, second one in 2 weeks.
So, when it was brought to my attention around noon (sorry!!!) I ran down to the office and started repairs. These servers aren't very happy if the power fails, and recovery can take a while, but its moving forward now.

I have added additional notification methods to my "is it broken" system, next time this happens (It better not!!!) things will be caught much sooner.

(4:08 pm the last of the mail has cycled through, all services are back to normal)
