Hi-mail upgrade – Version 8.1
Today we are pleased to announce that Hi-mail version 8.1 is almost ready for deployment and brings with it a range of new features and enhancements for all of our new and existing customers to benefit from. Below you will find some important information about the upgrade process, downtime and other useful info.
The Hi-mail upgrade will take place towards the end of August and will involve not only an upgrade to the Hi-mail software and services, but also brand new dedicated hybrid server upgrades which will improve performance, reliability and over capacity.
