On June 13th, 2018 at 12:00 AM CST we will be performing a server upgrade to SmarterMail 16.0 (currently 15.5). SmarterMail the hosted mail solution provided as part of yourVCG email and website hosting solution.
You may lose email access during this period, however, no email data will be lost during the upgrade. You may also experience some slight delays in sending or receiving mail immediately following the completion of the work.
