Sonic.net Company Picnic

July 31, 2014 – 5:02 pm by John Fitzgerald

Sonic.net will close early for our 20th anniversary party, Monday August 4th.

The domain name Sonic.net was registered on July 26th 1994. Bill Clinton was president. The Channel Tunnel opened between France and England. Brazil won the World Cup. Forrest Gump was in theaters. Ace of Base was on the radio. The video game Warcraft was first released. Eight megabytes of RAM was pretty impressive. VHS was a thing. We’ve see a lot of changes in two decades, but with the support of our customers, coworkers, and community we look forward to even more.

Our offices and phone center will be closed Monday at 4:30pm for our company picnic and 20th anniversary celebration. We are sorry for any inconvenience, and will be back on duty at 6:00am Tuesday morning. Thank you for your continued support.

Outbound mail filter issue

July 22, 2014 – 3:25 pm by Kelsey

A bug introduced this afternoon in our outbound mail filters would, under certain circumstances, add a non-compliant header to messages sent through mail.sonic.net.  While most servers we’re happy to accept these messages some systems refused to accept the messages.  A fix for the bug has already been released into production.  –Kelsey
