New OCC e-mail server
From this day on please use the new OCC List Serv – email@example.com
The “test” list serv firstname.lastname@example.org will be disabled and no longer available.
The “old” list serv email@example.com will remain enabled for a short period of time.
Why do we have a new list serv?
Bluehost, the company that provides our web hosting services, does not allow for email throughput (750/hr) that is adequate for our needs. The result is that we would see emails dropped on the list serv. Some people would get them, some would not. We would also see emails to certain domains not get delivered due to SPAM rules.
For the “occ2” list serv, we are using a 3rd party package, DadaMail, to send our emails over to Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES). Using an industrial strength email service such as Amazon SES will solve our throughput restriction (now at 50,000/day with a max throughput of 14/sec), as well as have a high deliverability rate due to Amazon being a trusted mail origin.
Do I have to do anything ?
All of the email addresses have been ported over to the new list as well as the delivery preferences. If you find something amiss, please contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In summary, send any list serv messages to email@example.com
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me.
