This is the awaited upgrade to SC v4.5 :-)

Due to some unexpected hardware problems, this maintenance/upgrade has

been delayed until Tuesday March 17. Probably around the same time, but

will update once we know for sure.

> v4.5 - does it fix anything? Does it improve anything?

The upgrade will be virtually transparent to the users, though it will

fix the nagging copyright notice :-)

Mostly it fixes some things that will provide behind the scenes

stability and also gives us some tools to tweak some things we couldn't

tweak before. It incorporates fixes for a long list of bug reports

we've been reporting for quite a while.

In the last year or so Ironport has gone away from hot patches, instead

stacking things into version builds, unless it is a critical issue.

These go through extensive beta testing before going live.

Those that have been around for years will remember the infamous hot

patches that would break things severely, sometimes for days at a time.

The maintenance has been rescheduled from today to Thursday. I do not

have the exact time yet -- I will update you when I do.

Please propagate as needed.

Anyhow, it's been announced it'll be 1400 PDT. Same time, same place, just different day.

Richard

Let's cross our fingers this is finally going ahead.

Scheduled server maintenance and software upgrades Thursday, March 26,

2009, starting at 2:00pm PDT. During this time the SpamCop Reporting

Service website may not be available for a period of up to two hours in

duration. Emailed spam submissions will be accepted, but processing will

be delayed during the maintenance process.

This will not affect the SpamCop/CESmail email service, newsgroups or

forums.

Richard

And we start the countdown again.

AFAIK everything is still a go and this process will be starting in a

couple of hours. Visitors will see the SpamCop reporting website in

"Maintenance Mode" through the process.

Emailed spam submissions will still be accepted, but processing will be

delayed. It will no doubt take a few hours to catch up with the backlog

when things are brought back up.

Richard

tick, tick, tick...
