Your Cruzio Email

We know email is an important part of your day and how frustrating it can be when it’s unavailable.

If you’ve been affected by Cruzio’s email outages this week, our apologies. To bring our email back online as quickly as possible—and avoid any further outages—we’ve moved our email over to a different server. This will allow folks to send and receive email normally. Any saved emails will temporarily be unavailable, but should be accessible on Friday, 7/15.

We apologize for the unexpected disruption and expect this fix to resolve the issue.
