We are enthused to announce this month zMailCloud will benefit from scheduled upgrades to Mail Stronghold, our anti-spam and virus service.  We expect new features and improved performance.

If you have noticed an increase in spam recently, there is a good reason – the amount of spam in the Internet has more than doubled in volume since January. Cisco reports on recent spam volumes shows:

  •  A spam increase of 150% in February compared to January
  •  A spam increase of 210% March (to date) compared to January

Much of this spam are new types, and we have already updated our system with some new rules specifically created to trap these new types of spams. The upgrade will enable us to even more effectively identify and prevent these new types of spams, and prepare us for other planned improvements later this quarter.

We are enthused to announce that on April 8th, we will upgrade zMailCloud.  This major upgrade will bring many new features and improved performance.

Service will be interrupted temporarily during the upgrade.  No emails will be harmed during this process.

Beginning on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 between 10:00PM and 4:00AM CDT (GMT-5), we will be upgrading the Zimbra Collaboration Server software on which zMailCloud is based from version 7.2.1 to version 8.0.2. This upgrade brings hundreds of new features and improved performance.

During this upgrade process, zMailCloud customers will not be able to log in to accounts.  As usual, we will post a message to the Customer Center when the maintenance starts, and when it is finished.  It is possible we may delay the upgrade again by a week or more, based on the results of continued pre-upgrade testing.

Here are a few of the highlights from the hundreds of new additions and features that come with with this major upgrade:
