We've observed that the broken certificate chain at our ESP appears to be repaired. Internal test emails have successfully delivered and the overall failure rate of email delivery in has dropped significantly. We're continuing to monitor the incident from our own system and see that there are still occasional failures due to the repaired certificate chain not yet fully propagating.

We'll update and resolve this incident once we've confirmed a full recovery and emails that previously failed to send are accepted by our ESP.

Our primary ESP deployed an incomplete and invalid SSL certificate to their SMTP infrastructure. This is preventing outbound email messages from sending through for accounts that use SendGrid to deliver emails. This includes all accounts that are not using our Custom SMTP option and any Custom SMTP account that is using SendGrid.

We are in communication with our ESP to receive updates and ensure a timely recovery. Emails that have failed to send will be retried once our ESP has resolved the SSL certificate error in their infrastructure.
