  1. Thanks for the info. Looks promising for TCH. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to make it work with my old host :-( Can't find the options described in the tutorial...
  2. I've got Spam assasin at another host, but each time I enable it, nothing seems to happen! Soo... I wonder if it WORKS right out of the box here? I really need to start shifting the filtering to happening on the server instead of on my own PC...
  3. Or if you anticipate going over regularly, you could upgrade your account to the next plan?
  4. You're so screwed! Unless you are Happy! Hosting Network, Inc., and unless they give over control over the domain to you without any trouble.
  5. Quick question: Is it possible to have moderators who won't appear to be moderators? In effect moderators who don't want to appear to be moderators to the users? EDIT: Think I answered my own question by reading this thread: http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?...opic=116724&hl=
  6. OK, thanks. Guess it'll be invision board then.
  7. Another issue. With Invision Power Board, is it just new topics that can be moderated, or can I hold off on individual posts in that thread being visible too?
  8. I've been surfing the net now for an hour or two, and it seems like it's currently down to either Talkshop or Invision. Invision is free on TCH? Like I don't have to pay for it?
  9. mmm, I need a board type thingy, where the posts aren't expanded (like they usually are on a blog). It should be pre-moderated, open for guests, and some members should be allowed to posts without pre-moderation. And it should be less comprehensive than the really big forum types, in that it won't power a busy forum.
  10. And again, that whole board is way overkill for my use. Maybe a blog would be better? Geeklog? On second thought, it doesn't look right either. I quite like Talkshop, even though it's VERY basic and often a pain. Something similar in PHP would be good, but with way better admin tools.
  11. I need to install a forum where posts need to be approved before they appear on the forum. This is not a high volume forum - few posts, though higher traffic. There's a pre-approval mod for phpBB, but that whole forum is overkill for my use. I also found Talkshop (cgi), and http://phorum.org/ (PHP). Can I use any of these here, or are there other good choices for me?
  12. Hmmmm.... Remember that virus that sent mails to all sorts of addys on your domain name? That was a real bummer. With catch all e-mail, I couldn't filter it out. But maybe you've got filters that would handle it some other way? I saw something about filtering attachment file types.
  13. Make sure you encode your e-mail address on your website so you won't get as much spam (nothing is foolproof, some spammers seems to collect addresses by HAND or forwards!). Formmail type scripts with the address encoded inside the script is one way. Another is something like this: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/emailriddler/ If that one isn't enough, please advise!
  14. I went through something similar a while ago when I wanted to read my e-mails through wap on my cell phone. Not yet a TCH customer, but this should work here too: I get loads of spam on one of my primary accounts that I use a forwarder on. So I needed an account that would filter spam. Tried Hotmail. The Hotmail spam filtering is done by analyzing the SMTP server connecting to their server. So that broke the filtering. Plus it doesn't work with wap except through third party services Settled on Yahoo. Their filtering isn't broken even when you forward through another server. The filtering is obviously done in some other way. I had to fish out an e-mail from ONE friend from the bulk folder, and of course plenty of mail doesn't get filtered. Apart from that it's absolutely wonderful. Wap works great too. BTW, if you want to try the same thing: wap.yahoo.com There are also different country portals, just check Google for wap yahoo. Another thing, make sure you use GPRS (only slightly newer phones) and check what you'll be paying for traffic.
