- In response to the ever growing problem of unsolicited commercial e-mail ("spam"), a new anti-spam e-mail gateway was put in place last week to filter e-mail set to the childrenwithdiabetes.com, diabetes123.com, and diabetesmonitor.com domains. This e-mail gateway is very aggressive and has resulted in a reduction in spam of almost 99%. If you received a notice that your e-mail was not accepted, please use our online feedback form to report the error message you received.
