AOL suffered its third major Email outage last week, days after the company had celebrated its ten millionth customer. The five hour blackout occurred during business hours in the US, prompting reports that the company now has too many members on board to keep itself afloat. AOL has about 530,000 people using its system simultaneously during peak hours, up nearly 150,000 on last year. The problem, according to the on-line service, was caused by a software bug that digs into the OS that runs AOL's Email servers. The bug brings the servers down one by one causing extensive delays. However, AOL officials assured users that its mail system is now up and running as normal and no more delays are expected. AOL's mail servers are on target to handle more than 80 million Emails a day by the end of 1998.
