Week 2 of the trial of our new anti-spam solution is upon us. Initial feedback from the users is good but we’ll be asking for some formal feedback later on in the trial. A few comments have been made about the speed of the quarantine area website. The website can be a bit slow at times, but there’s a very good reason for this. If we were to go live with the product we would have multiple units in place to deal with the load, we currently only have one. If we decide to buy into this product we will purchase additional units which will speed up the service. All incoming e-mail is being scanned by the new anti-spam product, by the end of this week all our out going e-mail will be scanned by the new product as well.
Our suppliers have also been looking in on the trial and they have gained some useful information by watching our use of their product. They have made a commitment to make some changes to the Quaratine area website to improve performance. I am having a review of the trial with our suppliers on the 18th July, and then a final review on the 27th July. If you have any questions for our suppliers or any comments that you would like me to pass on please e-mail me or post a comment here.
