Email failure cripples uni

MELBOURNE University has been closed to electronic communication for two days due to email failure, cutting off about 5000 staff from students as they finalise enrolments.

Academics yesterday vented frustration over the crashing of the elite Parkville campus’ email server during orientation week.

A senior academic who did not want to be named said the failure left researchers “paralysed”.

“It is ironic that the university that most aspires to an international reputation is today completely cut off from the outside world,” the academic said.

“It is the worst possible time because of orientation week and people trying to book tutorial sessions for next week. They can’t.”

A note posted on the university website last night said the staff email server failed on Tuesday, was fixed on Wednesday night but shut down again at 8am yesterday.

"Information Services advises that staff access to email is now available, but the service is running in a degraded state." (23-Feb-2007)
