We're investigating a problem with outbound email delivery via Help Scout's servers, including replies that you send to your customers and system emails that we send to you, such as notifications or confirmation emails. Mailboxes using custom SMTP or Google oAuth settings are not impacted. We'll post more information here as we have it.
