But you probably hadn’t heard that despite the damage caused by the fire, Brown Ledge has been rebuilding in preparation for the originally scheduled opening of camp on June 20. As a long-time friend and client of ours, we’ve been closely monitoring their rebuilding efforts and are excited to post this update on the remarkable progress they’ve made just in recent weeks.

This week Comcast Xfinity sent out an email warning about outgoing email issues relating to email clients still set to use port 25. Due to spambot abuse, Comcast has been gradually blocking this port over the past 3 months and this belated warning email indicates to me that they’ve had a lot of upset/confused customers experiencing sudden, seemingly unexplainable issues with sending email. Today we talk about why Comcast is making this change and show you how you can proactively adapt instead of panicking when suddenly your email stops working.
