SPAM Blacklist Change to be made on the Symantec Messaging Gateways tonight 12/12
Entered on 12/12/2013 at 12:58:20 EST (GMT-0500) by Howard Cohen:
We will be removing the SPAMCop blacklist and adding the Barracuda blacklist in it's place at approximately 8:00pm tonight. After the change we will be watching the email logs closely for some time to assure email is flowing properly.
Recently SPAMCops reputation has diminished and we are trying to avoid false positives.
