iCloud Mail Experiencing Issues for Second Day in a Row [Update: Fixed]

Apple's iCloud Mail service is experiencing issues for the second day in a row, and Apple's System Status page says that the service may be slow or unavailable for some users.

General iOS Mail Feature
The outage began at 5:06 a.m. Pacific Time, and affected users may not be able to access their mail until the issue is resolved, which is the same problem that the service was having yesterday.

Apple has not provided a timeline on when a fix might be available, but we'll update this article when the outage has been addressed. Yesterday's outage lasted for several hours, and has recurred twice now.

Update: Apple says that the outage has been resolved.

Well, my iCloud email is working just fine. A few seconds ago, I got spam from Mod Pizza.. oh look, there's more spam from Fred Meyer... and something about a LastPass security breach...

Dammit, why isn't my email broken? I could use the break! ?

Unrelated but Gmail's spam filter has become phenomenally bad over the last few months. It's incredible what kind of garbage is actually making it to my inbox.

Looks like someone at Apple tech team didn’t get the memo. Can’t think why?

Till now nobody explained the advantage of Mail iCloud ON – if you use IMAP/SMTP setting in your email accounts they are synchronized on every device automatically.

Yeah I was going to say, Apple Mail has been working fine for me - I saw the notices about the outage but never had an issue. I have about 5+ emails going to my Apple Mail. (Domain through Apple, Fastmail, Gmail, etc).
