Email issues, Server migration

technical difficultiesFriday, July 29, 2016:

Please note that we have experienced technical difficulties with some emails today - this should have only affected Gmail addresses due to a new encryption format pushed by Gmail that caused emails to bounce from incompatible servers. We should be back to normal on Saturday, so if you were affected by this, please try emailing again tomorrow.

There will also be a short disruption or slow-downs on the website tonight, while we migrate to new servers. This should only last for a few hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
