Can't access webmail today

Hi,
I can't access either the old or the new webmail system today.  Trying webmail.plus.net I just see "Waiting for webmail.plus.net" forever.  If I try betawebmail I get the login screen but it hangs forever after I enter in my username and password.

Re: Can't access webmail today

I’m able to access the new webmail but not the old; Is the old webmail no longer accessible permanently?

Planned Webmail Maintenance - Tuesday 10th April 7.00am-8.00am
Email
Posted on: Thursday 5 April 2012, 17:41
When's this work happening?
Tuesday morning, 10th April.
What does it affect?
Our Webmail platform.
How long will it take?
About 5 minutes.
What does the work involve?
We are officially launching our new Webmail platform -
http://community.plus.net/blog/2011/12/01/roundcube-launch/
Am I likely to notice the work?
Yes. If you click the 'Webmail' link on our website you will be taken to our new Webmail platform. Any bookmarks you have saved will also point to the new site rather than the old one.
Is there anything else I need to know?
The old platform will remain available for several months but will eventually be decommissioned. You will be able to continue accessing the old platform by browsing to https://webmail.plus.net/squirrelmail or clicking the 'basic webmail' button on the Webmail login page.
Kind Regards
Bob Pullen

Re: Can't access webmail today

The switch has happened, but seems to be some teething problems afterwards. You'll still be able to access the old webmail for now at webmail.plus.net/squirrelmail

I managed to get in on webmail.plus.net/squirrelmail.  However,  to say it's sluggish is an understatement!

Re: Can't access webmail today

I am (again) having to use https://www.mail2web.com to access my Plusnet Webmail because of problems at Plusnet. If anyone else would like details re. how to do this (it is easy) I will post them here.

Re: Can't access webmail today

Morning folks,
As alluded by Jim, we've encountered some unexpected problems following this morning's maintenance.
I've just published a Service Status announcement and we hope to have things back up and running ASAP.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

https://betawebmail.plus.net/ and https://betawebmail.plus.net/squirrelmail both working ok at the moment, but https://webmail.plus.net is not. (ref: Webmail problems (71023) service status). HTH.

Re: Can't access webmail today

Things should be looking a lot better now. Latest announcement is here.
We encountered a few stumbling blocks. Roundcube wasn't processing attachments very efficiently, some of the server logs were growing to silly sizes and the boxes were under extremely high load until we enabled an additional server. We also had some issues with the Metronet build and some of the updated Apache config.
We're still seeing the odd spike in load on one of the boxes so we're keeping a close eye on things. There's also the missing address book entry problem as reported by @roughyed here.
