Supposedly the problem is now fixed. Our other IT guy here chatted with
the ATS people, and they've eventually figured out "Had a problem with
one of the filters on the mail coming in from "outside" MSU. The filter
was fixed around 1:30 and mail has been flowing since then.".
Now, that doesn't really sound like something like what you're
describing, with MX issues. I actually had no problem with mail all
morning on a non mail.msu.edu system, it was just mail trying to go *to*
the main msu email servers.
Of course, that also sounds like anything that came in that never made
it was probably lost forever.
