Subject: [OMPI devel] Fwd: Update on CS mail problem
From: Joshua Hursey (jjhursey_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-01-08 11:18:03


You may have noticed that some of the messages from this morning were marked as a virus (prefixed with [PMX:VIRUS]). This was caused by the problem described below by Rob. This affected the various mailing lists (including all the Open MPI project lists) that were hosted by IU.

The admins at IU think they have the issue resolved, and should be resending the quarantined messages sometime today.
