System slowdown: Fixed

We're currently investigating a problem with slow sending. Messages are still sending, just very slowly. We're working on this now, so please come back here for status updates.

Update: The slowdown problem turned out to have been caused by some unusually large user-supplied content exposing a major bottleneck. The slowdown had actually been happening for a long time, it had just never had content of a type to cause it to slow down so much and make its presence felt. This underlying problem has now been fixed, with a bonus that we're now seeing much higher send speeds than before! All pending mailshots have now been sent. We apologise for the inconvenience, but hope you'll enjoy the improved performance.
