White House (.gov) Email Down Due to Microsoft

The new White House team found out there email systems were down for most of the day on Monday. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs mad the announcement of the technical difficulties at his 1:30 p.m. briefing. He apologized for the e-mail silence and blamed it on a Mircrosoft Outlook server.

Both incoming and outgoing email were not working. They resorted to making photocopies of the executive orders that President Obama signed.

Mr. Gibbs said, “Our apologies if you’ve e-mailed any of us in the last two-and-a-half hours. Our e-mail system is not working so well. So our apologies on that, and we’ll endeavor to get you information from earlier in the day, hopefully in a little bit more of a timely manner, if we can get the e-mail to work.”

When questioned further he replied, “We don’t comment on security issues.”
