  1. I gotta agree with dapozo on this one TCH When you click on the "Mail" icon in your control center you get various options on the Mail Manager Main Menu... Web Mail Email Domain Forwarding Manage/Add/Remove Accounts Default Address Auto-responders E-mail Filtering Forwarders Mailing Lists SpamAssassin BoxTrapper Spam Trap Trace an E-mail Address Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry) The fact that these items ("Mailing Lists" and "SpamAssassin") are in the Mail Manager Main Menu implies a level of compatability and configuration. You've got S
  2. Thanks guys. I'm really getting there now. I have made the filtering changes and have gone into Horde and verified the spam is getting diverted to the Spam folder, and the messages in that folder now have "*****SPAM***** in their subject lines Is the "blacklist" and "whitelist" stuff in Horde tied into SpamAssassin? That is, if I find something in the Spam folder that should not be spam, do I just select it and click "whitelist?" Or, is there some other way I need to tell SpamAssassin that it's legit. In short, how do I teach it where it needs teaching? As an aside, I went to the Sp
  3. Ah ha!! That bit of information helps Andy! Now the instructions actually make sense! (and doesn't this point out that the help page needs a little work?) I have followed the instructions to the letter, except that I have input "Spam" instead of "Discard." I assume this will direct all such email to my Spam folder instead, correct?
  4. Bruce, thanks. I saw that page. And it *appears* it is *not* talking about SpamAssassin configuration settings. Rather, it is talking about *Horde webmail* settings and getting it working with SpamAssassin. But nowhere on the page does it explicitly say that. So, this help page needs some editing. Now, let's assume my SpamAssassin settings are correct (which you have not verified one way or the other yet). I therefore assume the section that applies to setting it up in Horde is "Automatically discard spam email." So, I go to Horde and try to follow those instructions. First line *shou
  5. Can someone give me a screen shot of their "SpamAssassin Configuration" screen in cPanel? I have been looking through the forums and doing google searches and I have yet to find a good article on how I should setup SpamAssassin. The "Required score" is already set to "5" I filled in the "rewrite_subject_header" with "*****SPAM*****" (no quotes) But I have no idea what to put in the "blacklist_from" area, the "score" area or the "whitelist_from" area. I went to the SpamAssassin site and tried the configuration generator tool (http://www.yrex.com/spam/spamconfig.php). But it
  6. Exactly my point Mark. It begs the question of how we protect these types of mailing lists - from both Spam and virus attacks. In the case of Spam, it seems it is possible to use SpamAssassin with Mailman (see my prior link). And in the case of virus protection, I understand there is a program called CLAMAV (see http://www.tummy.com/Software/mailman-clamav) that can be integrated with Mailman. I would be willing to slog through the configuration integration tasks in both cases, if that were possible, but since it is not then I have to wonder how I can install these types of protections shor
  7. I have activiated a couple of Mailman mailing lists on our website via the control panel (Mail > Mailing Lists). I have also activated SpamAssassin. But I am unsure of how I can integrate these two programs. I want to be able to use SpamAssassin to intercept spam sent to our mailing lists. There is an article online on how this can be done. See... http://www.jamesh.id.au/articles/mailman-spamassassin/ But the procedures outlined in the article appear to be out of the scope of what I can do through our website control panel. In fact, I have looked copiously via FileZilla at our webs
  8. To address Andy's question...I want to back them up automatically on a regular basis. But since there is a chance I could be over-writing good with bad (my site was recently hacked), the best thing would probably be to back them up incrementally - that is, not just overwrite yesterday's backup but give each a new backup name (include the current date in the filename?). To address Bruce's question...as mentioned above, on or about December 23 my site was hacked . I found spurious links in my pages and even an embedded virus on one of them. And it looks like they accomplished this because I
  9. Is there a way to use Cron to backup files (not a db) that are created by my Movable Type program? I have a number of my MT templates "linked to file" in a subdirectory of my site that I use to store them as backups. But there are some templates where I've specified the "link to file" to a different location that's in the root of my weblog site (I use these as sidebar includes). How can I create a Cron job to copy these template files in their current location to my templates backup directory with the others? I tried this as the "Command to run" line... >cp /home/<name&g
  10. Thanks much. That looks really helpful where I really need to list an email address on a page. And I have some sites where this *will* come in handy I've done a little more research and found a couple of helpful ideas in this article at the HealYourChurchWebsite.com. I have installed Jim Seymour's Simle Contact Form (SCForm) at my site. I invite you to give it a try. Let me know if you see any security holes. Thanks!
  11. To get away from the spam email I was receiving as a result of listing my email address on my website(s), I have been using a contact form produced by Christopher Heng at TheSiteWizard.com. Recently, I was spammed by somebody who found a way to use the form. TCH seems to be monitoring such events quite closely, and the way I found out about the attack was by visiting my site and finding my account had been suspended. This was in spite of the fact that I was the only recipient of the spam and my account had been suspended after only 15 messages. While this seems a bit over-reactionary it is com
  12. I was using BoxTrapper with good results for some time Recently, I decided to try Spam Assassan. But tonight I found my account (dave.englund.name) suspened due to spam I am still waiting for a reply to my help issue to find out the specifics - if it was related to an attack on a contact form I use on my site or my email that was supposedly being protected by Spam Assassan. Frankly, I don't think I like Spam Assassan. And as soon as my account gets unlocked I'm going back to BoxTrapper where NOBODY gets through unless I LET them through. The dirty dogs!
  13. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Humm...it sounds like your saying I'd have to use a strict TCH URL that is made up of (1)the server my account is assigned to, (2)the "totalchoicehosting.com" domain name, and (3)my username, as opposed to a URL that consists of my domain name. Is that correct?
  14. I'd like to explore using the SSL feature that is part of my hosting package with TCH. According to your online SSL Help, if I understand correctly: a. I need to have someone "turn on" (enable) the SSL feature for my account. b. I then decide how to incorporate the SSL refers (https) into my site structure. Got a few questions... 1. Are there any "hidden" charges I might run into using the SSL package that comes with my TCH account? 2. Once it's "enabled" for my domain name, then I can choose to use it or not. Correct? It's not going to mess up my site if I *don't* use it (if I
  15. Dudes, I have been looking around on your forums lately for various tidbits of info I need to help me on my website(s). And I like do a search and find a bunch of related posts. But when I click on any of them to read the post, they like don't load and I eventaully get an error page. Strange thing is, if I do a search via Google with the same search criteria, I'll find a hit for one of the same posts on TotalChoiceHosting forums, and I can like read it by going through Google. For example... http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/forums/l...php/t17609.html So, is this a problem i
