Thursday 01/19/2006 - In a continuing effort to provide our customers with enhanced service we have added a new feature to how eMail is processed. This will have no effect on valid eMail traffic that conforms to the current eMail standards [RFC’s]. We are making this change in a continuing effort to cut down on the amount of UCE (Unsolicited Commercial E-mail) SPAM that is being delivered to our customers.
Thursday 11/03/2005 – We performed eMail server update maintenance, and the eMail server was off-line for a brief period. The maintenance was completed, and the eMail server was brought back on-line around 4:00 a.m. We now have the latest versions of SpamAssassin™ , and ClamAV™.

Internet Partners, Inc. completed the renumbering of our network. Even
after well over two years we still have some customers who continue to request DNS
lookups from our old DNS host on the old IP addresses. Please note that
when you setup a new host computer unless otherwise instructed every thing
should be setup to automatically obtain this type of information.
Internet Partners, Inc. now has added a new feature to our eMail server. Clam
AntiVirus™ as a new frontline protection for eMail processing.
Clam AntiVirus™ is a GPL anti-virus toolkit. The main purpose of this software is the integration with eMail servers (attachment scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs are based on a shared library. Most importantly, the virus database is kept up to date.

Tests on our network [Note: Java base tests require that Java be installed www.java.com ]
- File based Bandwidth Speed Tester source obtained from http://www.tss.net
Tests from other points on the Internet
Internet speed depends on a lot of network factors. The internet speed you receive is determined by the slowest link in the chain leading to and from your computer. This includes numerous switches, routers, servers, and host computers it takes to transfer data. Tests are only as accurate as the network factors between your computer and the other end of the connection. Try these tests numerous times at different times of the day to get a good idea of your true speed to the internet.
