I'm having problems with my Orcon email account at the moment. I can check the account via POP3, but any emails sent to it are returned and webmail is down. The only new emails I'm receiving are the returned messages I sent to myself.

Is anyone else having the same problem?


For reference, the error from webmail is: Error, cannot connect to database: Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 111


The error from the returned email is:
