Re: Where has the spam gone?

Is postini actually "live" then? I don't think I joined a trial.
If so then why on some accounts and not others?

Re: Where has the spam gone?

Many people on the Forum have stopped referring to it as a trial since most if not all customers were migrated onto it.
Some DNS changes took longer to propagate worldwide particularly hosted domains.

Yes, customers are being moved to postini in batches, so some will only just have started.
btw lacedemonian = laconic

Thanks for the info Chris.
I'm fairly well read but Webster's Revised Unabridged is not on my bathroom bookshelf.

Hopefully not to be confused with Laodicean---to be spat our of the mouth because neither hot nor cold Smiley
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Where has the spam gone?

I just thought I'd mention that since having been moved to postini a few days ago the spam  has ground to a halt.
Makes a nice change not having to keep deleting all those ads for viagra and watches... Smiley

Re: Where has the spam gone?

Same here. What a relief. Seems to be working very well. How do I check bona fide mail isn't being filtered out though? I believe it can be done but don't know how.
