Google Postini Service Update: 6:20 PM ET

For our customers, mail flow for Google Postini Services has been “normal” since about 3:25 this afternoon. A short while ago, the Message Center and System Administration consoles came back online.

The Postini service will continue to add deferred messages to the stream of messages being process and delivered in real-time. While we have no official word about how long it will take to forward all of the deferred messages, we expect the process will take several hours.

We will continue to monitor the process and post updates as appropriate.

We certainly understand the frustration and pain that accompanies email service disruptions. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
