More servers installed to deal with spam load

We’ve now setup and installed two new servers to deal with the increased mail delivery load that’s been occurring the last two days. These new servers are powerful dual core Xeon 5130 processor based servers, and so should be able to handle the processing load. We’ve also lowered the queue warning level, so we’ll be paged earlier if there does appear to be any excess email building up so we can deal with it quicker.

With the new servers, we’ve also taken some time to update our SpamAssassin installation to the latest version, and also install the FuzzyOcr plugin to try and deal with the large number of stock “pump-and-dump” image spams that are plaguing Internet email users at the moment.
