Planned maintenance and upgrade — Tuesday 10 July 2012

Hi everyone,

This is advance notice of planned maintenance work on dotMailer; this will include a few small upgrades as well as maintenance fixes.


Tuesday 10th July 2012, at 18:00 BST (17:00 UTC).

What changes will I see?

In addition to the usual fixes, tweaks and clean-ups we'll be releasing a few upgrades to the segmentation tool currently available to dotMailer testpilots. Full details will be available in the release notes on Tuesday after the update.

How will it affect me on Tuesday?

dotMailer will still be usable throughout, but during this time you may notice:

  • Slowness. We do not anticipate any significant delays; however there is potential that some areas of the system may be slower than normal, including segmentation and behavioural queries. Sends may go out slower and contact imports may be affected too.

Do I need to do anything before Tuesday?

No, everything will happen automatically.

Can I get up-to-date information during the maintenance?

Yes – follow @dotMailer on Twitter for updates. We will (as usual) be using the hashtag #dMmaint if you wish to filter out just our maintenance tweets

Planned downtime on Saturday 14 July 2012

Although regular upgrades such as this one involve no downtime, don't forget we have planned downtime for exceptional upgrade work on Saturday 14 July 2012.
