Cause of Parliamentary downtime on Microsoft Office 364½ revealed


Re: Email Continuity Services

Their "backup MX" service won't help if the primary provider is still receiving email but then deletes it from their infrastructure. A backup MX is also not needed for a 13 hour outage, as the origin mail servers should spool the messages for several days before considering them undeliverable and notifying the sender to try again.
