Email Server Hard Drive Sub System Failure 6:14 am Today!
COMPUTER TEAM, INC. has had a partial email server failure this morning at 6:14 am. While the server is running this error has caused the server to slow down. Currently it is having issues keeping up with the normal volume of email. We are going to bring it down to fix the problem. No email will be lost because outside servers configure properly will continue to retry sending. We hope to have it back up and running with the hour. We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.
Email Spam Filter Changing
COMPUTER TEAM, INC. is about to make some major changes to the way we handle spam email. For years now, COMPUTER TEAM, INC. has filtered your e-mail for spam messages. As some of you may know, we sometimes get false positives. A false positive is an e-mail marked as spam but is not spam. We then spend considerable time searching through our logs and history to find those false positives to ensure our clients get the e-mail they are expecting.
Going forward we are going to mark the spam messages as spam and deliver them to you in case of false positives. This will give you the opportunity to review spam messages. This will help to ensure that you are getting messages even though they may look like spam to our leading edge spam filters. The spam messages will be available for review for 14 days. We will then delete spam messages that are 14 days or older on an ongoing basis. Read more...

Agents are instructed to obtain a copy of the taxpayer’s data base for the year under examination only when it is necessary. This examination tool will not be used in all cases – it is the judgment of the examiner.
