By the time I disabled the email sending on BZ it was already too late.

The impact was pervasive, hitting the email infrastructure in general.
 Essentially, Google saw an unusual number of emails coming suddenly
from Apache, and put a rate limit on emails that it would accept from
us.  That directly impacted those with GMail addresses, but also
backed up the outgoing mail queue at Apache which impacting everyone
else as well.

The queue should be clearing now and the old notifications delivered.
I don't know if new account emails have a time limit on when the
accounts can be confirmed, but if it is shorter than a 24 hours users
might need to register again.

Sorry all for the trouble I unleashed here.
