Date: Fri, May 4, 2018 at 8:37 AM PDT - On May 4th, 2018, our system was hit with an unusually large volume of spam messages. As a result, our email provider has temporarily disabled our ability to deliver emails. This means that the following email messages cannot presently be sent:
- CAS Ad Status emails (New Ad, Ad Approved, ...)
- Account Related Emails (New Account, Password Reset, ...)
- Email Proofs
- Contact Seller
- Email a Friend
There may be other automated emails which are also affected.
Our Systems and Development teams are presently working with the highest priority to correct the issue and restore our service.
