Summary: U.S. Department of Education's E-mail System is Down
Author: ODAS - Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary - SFA

Posted August 27, 1998

The U.S. Department of Education began experiencing difficulties with its e-mail system this week, and e-mail messages sent to ED after midnight on Monday, August 24, may not have reached their intended recipient.

While some e-mail is being delivered, the system is not fully reliable at this time, and if you need to contact someone in ED, please do so by telephone or by fax. We expect to resolve these difficulties very soon.

You will find a phone directory of ED employees, as well as other information for contacting ED, at:

These difficulties do not affect the ED website; nor do they affect web-based transactions using the Grant Administration and Payment System (GAPS).

Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this temporary e-mail difficulty.
