  • Access Problems with UZH Accounts

    Currently (Friday 5 OCT 17:10), the UZH servers are hit by many authentication requests designed to get unauthorised access. Most services react with a lockout for the username after about 10-20 login attempts. So if your mail all of a sudden stops working, do not change the settings etc. Lockout for mail is about  3 hours. There is little you can do except wait and retry after half a day. Hans Martin
