Email server upgrades

We are making some improvements to our incoming mail servers that we'd like to tell you about.

The result will be more checks identifying what is spam and what isn't before it gets to your mailboxes.

At this stage, we have scheduled our incoming mail upgrade to take place on Tuesday, September 14th.
The main impact your users may notice is that they will receive a lot less spam to their spam folder. This is normal. Because of the precision of these additional filters, we can stop most spam at the gateway level, rather than letting it make its way into mailboxes. As a result, less spam gets delivered to the spam folder.

The initial response may be linking less spam to there being some sort of system error. We can assure you though that less spam is only a good thing and that our systems are working correctly.

We are also looking into future upgrades that will include message archiving, email encryption, email continuity and advanced policy control.

Success at SOHO Rochester 2009

Our blitz into the Rochester market was a great success. We were positively surprised with the turn out and, despite the cold and rain early in the day, the attendance remained steady throughout the entire show.
Although we have attended SOHO many time in the past years, this was our first year exhibiting. We received very positive results and had many engagements with new faces that we were happy to meet with. Olga and Brian presented our solutions with pride.

Web design seemed to be a very popular topic with most of the attendees, as many businesses are becoming aware of how important an online presence can be. We demonstrated some examples from our portfolio, and explained how we can help to make a business successful. Our affordable business startup packages were created with the small office/home office in mind. We believe every business, regardless of size, should have their own space on the internet, and our goal is to make it happen.
