MailBox App for iOS Is Down (Update: Sync Restored)
The much hyped app MailBox for iOS is currently having issues delivering mail. The company has been fielding individual questions via Twitter, simply stating they know about the issue and are working on it. You are still able to get push notifications about new mail, but when you open your mailbox you are greeted with “Having trouble connecting, Please try again soon”.
We reached out to Mailbox earlier and they stated they are working to have a status page available soon for us to look up any services issues and are aware of the issues.
For now jump on GMail or back to the built in mail client on your iPhone.
We will update this article and sent an alert on our Twitter account when service is restored. If you are currently waiting inline to get into the service, take the day off, head outside and have fun.
Update 2: Current users are back online. They are still holding the line to make sure everything is operating correctly.
Update 1: Official Statement from Mailbox Team
We’re currently seeing intermittent issues with our servers syncing mail. We’ve paused filling reservations so that we can focus on a fix.
If you’re currently using Mailbox, you’re most likely seeing a message that says “Having trouble connecting, please try again soon.” Don’t worry, any messages that you take action on or any new emails you create should not be lost. Once we have resolved the issue your Mailbox will simply update and process all actions you’ve taken inside the app.
The team is working on resolving this now, and we’ll let you know as soon as we’re filling reservations again. We hope to get things moving shortly.
Thank you for your patience,
The Mailbox Team
