Some of our customers and developers have written automated email processes for reading and storing SPOT email notifications. On September 8, 2009, we are making some enhancements to both our email and SMS formats and want to prepare developers for those changes.
The majority of customers need not take action.
Please visit here for a preliminary layout of the changes and stay tuned to the newsletter and previous link for updates as they become available.
