In this month’s newsletter
1) Webmail Interface Improvements
3) ICUK News
Since our last newsletter, there have been further developments on the CIX platform, including improvements to the webmail interface and the new CIXReader desktop client.
On the webmail interface, we are currently testing a new spam filtering delivery system where customers can configure additional rules and the trigger point-score level the system considers an email to be spam.
This was temporarily removed on a per customer basis when we switched the CIX spam filtering service away from JunkScreen back in 2011 to the ICUK hosted platform.
Customers are invited to test this at cix:cix.beta/webmail
Further developments are afoot with the new CIXReader desktop client, with a release pending. Currently in beta 2, with beta 3 being worked on, we’re concentrating to removing important bugs and making the program as easy to use as possible.
The program improves upon Ameol by removing the need to ‘blink’ to download and upload messages, as users now have the option of instant interaction with CIX and read/unread flags are held on the CIX system. This obviously helps with customers that are away from their main computer and can use the web interface or another copy of CIXReader on a laptop and have message read flags and statues in-sync with each machine.
Plans to port to Mac and Linux are also in the pipeline.
If customers wish to try CIXReader, details can be found in cix:cix.beta/cixreader
CIX’s parent company ICUK has joined Superconnected Cities – a voucher scheme run by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport to encourage businesses to take up leased lines for superfast internet access. Full information can be found on the website at www.icuk.net/superconnectedcities.
We’re also up for another award! This time the Comms Business Reader Vote award for ISP of the Year. We’d be very grateful for any and every vote we receive: www.commsbusinessawards.co.uk.
Finally, we’ll be exhibiting at the Convergence Summit North in Manchester in March, on the 11th and 12th. It’s free to attend, so sign up and come and meet the team! We’d love to see you there. http://goo.gl/NbErGm
