So they kept servers down all because people couldn't get their mail? I'm sure we could have enjoyed our last day in TBC while they resolved the problem....

Hi. I'm no wow expert, but I'm pretty sure TOMORROW is the last day of TBC. :)

Yes, they had to keep the servers down to address the issue. They either had to re-import a backup of the SQL database, or restore a copy of the SQL database for mail and re-import that database to send all of the missing mail back to people. There is no way they could have done this while allowing people to play. It really is sad how little people that use a computer know about managing a network, let alone a full fledged major server like this. I could care less if the server was down for a day, oh no. The last time I can remember it being down this long was shortly after launch, maybe I missed some time in between when there were issues, but seriously, the size of these servers, its amazing how little it happens.
