E-Mail System Running Again at the White House
By Michael D. Shear
White House e-mails are flowing again.
After stranding frustrated White House staffers without e-mail for nearly 24 hours, the West Wing servers came back to life early this morning.
E-mail began trickling in at about 7 a.m., and by 8:05 a.m. the "Daily Guidance" e-mail to the press had gone out, indicating that the normal flood of e-mails was set to begin.
The outage, which began at about 10 a.m. Monday, was apparently the result of a server failure, aides said Monday. It left the normally connected Obama administration suddenly cut off from the lifeblood of Washington.
But that lifeline was returned Tuesday -- for good or ill, as BlackBerrys suddenly came back to life, buzzing incessantly.
