A fix is being deployed for the inbound email issue affecting our Japan Data Center.


During a routine software upgrade of our mail server software, an error was introduced in its configuration file. The configuration error caused us to defer inbound email for Zendesk accounts in our Japan data center. A fix was identified and implemented in the mail server configuration to return it to normal behavior.

Once the issue was resolved, all email being held by senders was successfully delivered to us.
