We've received a report about a major backlog of messages going through messaging.sprint.com and messaging.nextel.com.  Since Nextel and Sprint are the same company, is there a correlation?  Most likely.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Update:  I haven't heard anything else about this today.

Update 2:  A reader writes in to tell us about a memo he received from Sprint/Nextel.  A quote from the letter:

"Effective September 15, 2008, Business Connection Enterprise Edition (Network & Server solution) will be decommissioned.  Sprint is focusing on core solutions our customers require. Based on our review, Sprint will focus on two standard products that comprise the majority of the wireless email market: BlackBerry and Windows Mobile.  These products comprise the majority of current and future wireless email users. These products also have enhanced technical and device support available to you now and into the future."

Don't know if this is related, but, it possibly could be.
