Conti Financial Services has been hit by a problem with a recent email, which has resulted in thousands of emails flooding other financial services offices.
An email sent yesterday to its business contacts seems to have been affected by problems with the servers of some of the intermediaries being mailed.
The problem was then compounded when complaints came in about the inflow of electronic mail that some contacts were receiving.
CFS recommend that financial advisers and anyone else using a server within their office that runs a Microsoft program called small business
server take the following immediate action.
Go to www.microsoft.com/uk
Go to support
Go to technical database
Search for file 835734
Follow instructions to download the patch.
CFS apologise for any inconvenience caused, which has not only shut down their own email system, but has resulted in their main email address, contifs.com to be deleted.
