Sounds serious, and it is.

As an AT&T Mobility BlackBerry subscribver, I first started to pick up something wrong when I sent some photos of me swimming in a spa pool yesterday to some of my other email addys.

They aren't getting thru.

But it's not just me. Reuters just moved this:

E-mail service of Research In Motion's BlackBerry smartphones experienced a "critical severity outage" on Monday, the company told clients in an e-mail.

"This is an emergency notification regarding the current BlackBerry Infrastructure outage," stated an e-mail from RIM support account manager Bryan Simpson. The e-mail said the outage affected enterprise clients and "users of the Americas network."
