Road Runner email outage

Time Warner Cable is currently experiencing an outage that is affecting about 10 percent of all Road Runner email users.

James Silverman is a CPA and receives approximately 3 to 4 hundred emails every day. He says he doesn't know how many emails he may have missed because of the outage.

Silverman first noticed the problem last Tuesday when he was having trouble sending and receiving emails. He then switched his emails to Gmail accounts, because the majority of his work is done through email.

"They should have had enough capacity that they could have rerouted the accounts to another server so service wouldn't have been interrupted to the extent that it was," said Silverman.

Silverman also stated that his wife's Road Runner account has not been impacted.
