This work to restore the configuration store is still ongoing, we will provide an update when we have any further details. Unfortunately, we do not have a firm timescale for this to be completed, due to the nature of the work.

At around 2pm BST our monitoring systems alerted us to issues with the Active Directory domain which stores information for the Hosted Exchange platform.
The issue resulted in a corruption of a vital configuration store causing all Exchange databases to become dismounted. Data held in the Exchange databases at this point was not lost. The dismounting of the databases will have caused many customers’ mail clients to show as ‘disconnected’.
System Administrators then proceeded to run a restore of the configuration store to resolve the issue.
