Well folks, you may or may not have been inundated by forum messages in your email inbox today. This is because I found out why messages were not being sent, but the queue was certainly growing. After "flipping the switch", I was bombarded with roughly ~70 email messages and I knew that the problem was over. I assume everyone else will be receiving their messages now as well.
I apologize for this mornings email bomb. Thankfully we're back online and steps have been taken to prevent this particular problem from happening again.
