Comcast filtering Lotus Notes (Update 2)

We started getting reports from some of our users last week that large e-mail transfers via Lotus Notes were once again working on the Comcast network. I did some testing this weekend and every upload was successful.

So it would seem the filtering, at least for Notes in the Chicago area, has been lifted by Comcast. There is no telling if this is permanent since Comcast denies ever doing this in the first place but I will be watching it.

Well, how's that for quick damage control? Don't worry -- they'll stick it to us in some other way.

I am still unable to send email with large attachments from Lotus Notes in the Pittsburgh Area.
