Last week I scheduled an email to deploy this morning at 10am. I just checked it a few moments ago at 10:28am and it was still sitting there as scheduled and hadn't gone out yet. We try to adhere to a pretty strict send schedule so when I saw this, I immediately unscheduled it and tried to manually send it out now. It is still showing as scheduled and hasn't moved. it's now 10:34. It looks like the time keeps changing too. Has anyone figured out if there is a glitch or something stopping emails right now? And has anyone else had the scheduler issue? This is the second time a scheduled email hasn't deployed when it was supposed to, so any advice is appreciated!!

Hello @CeliaQuitugua and to anyone else noticing this issue,

 

The engineers are doing a routine stress test of the systems ahead of the holidays. This may cause some emails to be delayed in sending a bit, but they will sendout within the hour. 

 

To ensure your email gets sent out in its queue in the backlog, please do no unshcedule it and reschedule it, as that will only delay its sendout further.

 

I'll be marking this response as "Accepted Solution" for the sake of visibility.
