I imagine that most of the email you get is because of problems and that
people rarely go to the effort of taking the time to commend great service.

I’m simply writing to tell you that your service has been great since
you’ve completed your updates to the systems. I can only describe it as
responsive, smooth, reliable and a great value.

In particular the addition of spamassassin has been a boon. I am now
manage more than 90% of my spam filtering on eskimo before email even
reaches my home workstation. I don’t believe a single spam has actually
made it to my in box on my home system so far this year.

Thank you for this wonderful service!

Server Upgrades Complete

     The server upgrades were challenging.  The actual upgrades went fine, it’s what newer versions of software broke that was problematic.  For example, nfs-kernel-server and nfs-common, those upgrades broke the NFS server’s ability to talk to eskimo.com which is a SunOS 4.1.4 machine although it worked fine with all, even very old, flavors of Linux.  So I backed out the upgrade for those two packages.

     Then the upgrade also upgraded php from 7.0 to 7.1, but many of our web applications are not yet compatible with 7.1, most notably squirrel mail.  So I had to uninstall 7.1, and add a third party repository to re-install 7.0.

     I believe everything is working but if you find something please generate a ticket, use Support->Ticket’s from https://www.eskimo.com/.  Since I was up until 7:30AM, I will not be available before around 2pm.
