Whois Updates Downtime

Between approximately 09:00 - 16:20 (UTC+2) on 1 September 2022, the Whois Mail updates service was unavailable. Any email sent to auto-dbm _at_ ripe _dot_ net during this time failed with a message "Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender".

This issue has now been resolved and was caused by a maintenance update. This inadvertently included a major revision to the mail software which then caused the configuration to become invalid.
