FlockUpdate: Quick Email Update

About Email Changes

So email continues to be a problem. Grace, Church, and Fellowship all have had a few tests which work without issue but requires a setup for each domain one-by-one. This solution launched to ALL of Lilly, in a single install method – No more one-by-one.

What this does is look for patterns of spam, so like incoming spam filters it filters, all the outgoing email to make sure it’s not something junk going out, thus making it easier to ensure mail has gone out cleanly!

There are some add-on’s I haven’t enabled yet, but it will give you the ability to find out why you had email dropped, but as it stands while I’m cleaning up, some of you likely have NO idea you are sending spam if your site is compromised. I’ll be emailing those with compromised sites as I find them.

This service like all those in testing isĀ 100% free of charge. The goal long-term is to provide you guys with trouble-free email if at all possible! We’ve got Spam better for most with MX GuardDog, if testing continues well, we may have a fleet-wide solution for outgoing email as well!

Remembering 9/11

Please be sure to keep those affected by 9/11 in your prayers.

Massive DDoS Attack

As many have noted over the last few hours things have been slow to offline, I apologize for the outage, our upstream was having a massive DDoS attack on going, they have re-routed a lot of traffic, and things are starting to smooth out slowly but surely.

I do apologize for the outage – things should continue to level out over the next few hours as traffic returns to normal! Your prayers and IM’s were appreciated during this time.
