Emails coming from outside the university system will be delivered as soon as the department server is back online provided the server is set to receive emails through the mail gateway. Otherwise, the e-mails may be returned to the sender depending on the configuration of servers along the delivery path.

The network of the other areas including Tokyo campus will not be affected, but it will, naturally, be impossible to connect to the suspended servers due to the power outage in the Tsukuba Campus area.
