EQUAL WORKSHOP: Wednesday 09 December 2009


Following ideas discussed in TF-MSP meetings over the past 12 months, it was agreed to consult with the TERENA community to see if there was sufficient interest in arranging a one day workshop on the topic of Improving the Quality of Email Services. Staff of many NRENs have expressed an interest in such a workshop.

The workshop included presentations on community members approaches for spam reduction, technologies and practices and concluded with a discussion on the way forward.
