Sept 18th 2004. The mailing lists are slowly coming back to life. Since the failure of 6 days ago, mail has been stored. Approx figures are 25,000 mutt.org emails of which 4,600 were viruses (virii) and about 35 actual list traffic. Much being to invalid addresses and backscatter from forged mutt.org addresses.
