Flood of emails

Posted on Apr 18 2014 - 8:28am

Due to a recent flood of emails we've temporarily disabled the announce@troop685.org email distribution. Upon investigation, this appears to be the result of changes SOAR (our website vendor) had to make to their email system last week in response to global email changes on the internet. I've attached their response to all SOAR customers on this subject.
