WASHINGTON (AP) - Crisis averted at the White House. The e-mail system is back up and running.
E-mail went down at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. late Monday morning, leaving some of the most tech-savvy political operatives in history unplugged. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs gave no explanation for the outage at the time.
It was nearly 24 hours before the press corps received their next e-mail from the White House staff. Finally, at 8:05 a.m. Tuesday, it arrived - the daily guidance and press schedule that journalists across the nation's capitol had been waiting for with bated breath.
