Sophos Anti-Spam Service Outage – Tuesday, October 14th from 5:30-7:30am

All Sophos pure message anti-spam and anti-virus email servers will be down for maintenance from 5:30-7:30am to upgrade the software to the latest version. This upgrade is required to improve spam blocking for UPS email users.

During the upgrade mail should continue to flow between the University and the Internet, but may be slightly delayed at times until the upgrade is complete at 7:30am. The spam quarantine will be unavailable during parts of this outage as well. If the quarantine is not available please check back later in the day.

Update — 10/14/2008 @ 6:54am

All upgrades are complete and working as expected.  Due to the upgrade process some email may have been delayed by a half hour or more, but should now be back to normal.
