The latest report is:

"We are currently experiencing a DDoS attack. We have a number of mitigations in place to minimize the attack’s effects. Some customers will see a degradation of services."

The status page is: https://status.fastmail.com/

It's back for me now.

We are currently experiencing a DDoS attack. We have a number of mitigations in place to minimize the attack’s effects. Some customers will see a degradation of services.

In the future, should there be a problem with FM's domain name, keep this alternative FM-status URL handy:


https://www.fastmailstatus.com/


FM is back up for me too (West Coast USA).

Twitter is a good way to get notified when something is happening with Fastmail and POBox.com. This was Tweeted out 6 hours ago:

What makes you think that that poster is any particular specific gender? Surely "person" would have been a better noun?
