Out of the Blue

Running our mail server on an HP scientific calculator has proven an interesting and eventful experience, but unfortunately we seem to have stressed it once again, since it seems to currently be blindly redirecting incoming mail into the bit bucket. Considering the amount of spam and viral mail we receive, this demonstrates pretty good judgment. Unfortunately, no matter what proportion of it is worthless, we still get loads of mail we would like to read, so once again we've got Scotty running around engineering making metaphors about our chances at a repair, while also furiously looking to see if we can get something more reliable to serve as a mail server like a C-64 or one of those clever birds from The Flintstones who can chisel words onto slabs of rock so quickly. In the meantime, if you have anything you'd like to let us know about, please continue to use the temporary bluesnews@abydos.com address.

Blue,

Have you considered giving SpamCop's (http://www.spamcop.net) e-mail services a whirl? Their filters are supposed to be excellent nearly eliminating 100% of any incoming spam... The viruses, well, you should have a good AV software running anyhow, so, no biggie there. Just a suggestion if missed mail continues to be a problem. And no, I'm not an employee and Istand to gain nothing from recommending SC.net.
