We've looked at clouds from both sides now

No one can deny that cloud services offer the most affordable solution for file storage.

Email delivery delays to Videotron and other email service providers

Periodically, there is a delay in delivering mail from McGill to Videotron, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and Sympatico email addresses. This mainly occurs when sending a large number of emails (several hundred and up) at once as part of a McGill mailing list (such as a LISTSERV).

IT Services is investigating the issue. Further updates will be posted here.
