Email problems at SBC

Scottish Borders Council has apologised after the authority’s email system crashed.

The technical problems meant staff and members of the public were unable to contact one another last Tuesday via their computers.

The spokesperson from SBC said: “Our staff worked to resolve the problem and the email system was back up and running by the close of business that day. We are continuing to work on the system to improve the service and we do apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers.”
