  1. bell, I use dodos mail for a feedback form - my email isn't posted on m site anywhere, to get it people have to use the form =)


    has helped a fair bit, I'd say. My spam used to increase daily, since I put that in its stayed a steady amount. =)

    I use that too. I don't have my email address posted anywhere on my site.

  2. I use Locked Area They have 2 versions Pro and Lite. This works better than AMember, in my opinion. I used AMember before. The problem I had with AMember is that if there was a page in the "protected" folder.. anyone could just type in the URL and get in without being a member. So I found Locked Area Lite and it "locks" the entire folder. Any URL in that folder requires a log in.

  3. go into your cpanel, then file manager... then public_html.. then go into your cgi bin find the file then click on it. On the right hand side you will see some options.. Select Change Permissions... change the numbers in the box to read either 755 or 777.

  4. I downloaded PopTray yesterday and I so far I like it better than Mailwasher.. I didn't think I could find anything to beat it. LOL The only thing I find that PopTray doesn't do that Mailwasher does is bounce emails back to the sender.

  5. There was a critical update released today for users of 2000 and XP.


    I suggest everyone download this update now.

    My computer automatically downloaded an update this morning. So I'm assuming it's this one. <_<

  6. The email address of the sender was something like Visa@visa-security.com. I put in www.visa-security.com and it went to a site that said that site was available. There was a link in the email, but since I never downloaded it, I never went to the page. And since it didnt go to the email address I use when ordering online, I ignored it. There was a case with my debit card once and I call a phone call from the Visa Fraud department. It turned out what my husband and I were ordering (we had to order several of the same item) could only be ordered 1 item per order.. so we put in several orders and it triggered the Visa Fraud department to call us to verify that we were placing the orders. But in the past several days, no unusal activity has been noted on our checking account (I checked).

  7. I'm either just lucky or savvy. . .I won't open a link unless I'm expecting it, or it comes from a friend. . .and at the risk of sounding paranoid . . when checking mail in outlook: if I have any question, I right click "properties . .details . .and message source" before opening.


    The best thing to do is to keep your virus software updated, but still, that's no guarantee.

    The nice thing about mailwasher is I can preview an email before deciding whether or not to download it. Any spam I get I can bounce it right back to the sender :)

  8. You won't be sorry coming over to TCH. My last host was one of those "Bad Experiences". I've been here since April and long ago decided that TCH is the last hosting company I will ever need!! Customer service is wonderful.. Lots of very helpful people in the forums. I recommend TCH to any one who asks about a hosting company!! Just read on in the forums and you will see many glowing reports!


    Rock Sign ;) ;)

  9. I've gotten 2 emails like this in the past week and bounced them back. I viewed the complete headers and the emails did not come from PayPal.. they were not the PayPal domain emails. I know if PayPal has a problem with your account, you are notified of it when you log in, not by email :D
