This message is dated Friday 23rd August 2019 for Maidenhead.
I have had a message through from our HQ Comms department asking to put something out about the ‘dippers’ (pick pockets) in Maidenhead Town Centre. Can everyone be on their guard and make sure their purses / wallets / mobile phones are not easily accessible. We have purse bells available free of charge, from the reception desk at Maidenhead Police Station. The fashion at the moment for open beach style bags is a problem and a target for pickpockets. Women carry them under their arm, with the majority of the bag, standing out at the back - where someone can easily reach in and remove a purse.
Please be aware this is happening and adjust your bag accordingly.
I have been receiving reports from people that they have not been receiving messages. As this affected quite a large number of people, I referred the problem to VisaV who wrote the software and support the system.
This was their reply:
I can confirm that no emails have been successfully sent to your recipient, since the 9th. August.
I'm not sure if you are aware, but our systems were moved to a new data centre, on the 10th August and we did have issues sending emails to some addresses, as they were not accepting them. The majority of messages are now sending successfully but we are still monitoring this.
I have sent 2 test messages to your recipient and he appears to have received both of them.
Once you send your next message, I would say to leave it for a decent amount of time, for the email to be generated and sent - it can take a few hours, for messages with a lot of recipients and then to check if they has received it.
If not, please let us know, so we can investigate this further.
Apologies to your members, for any inconvenience caused.
Kind regards, Nick Houghton
