"We are sorry, the server that hosts your account is temporarily down for maintenance.
This is a result of hardware/kernel failures that occurred on Friday, affecting the server storing your account information and mail. The intervening time has been spent rebuilding the file system and restoring user data.

We anticipate a return to normal service by approximately 0400 GMT (8:00 PM Pacific)."

Engineers are currently looking into this.
We estimate that the server will be back online later on today."
