  1. I have done some research and found language options for Spam Assassin that may help, but I don't know where to enter this information on the Spam Assassin configuration page. I am thinking the following expression would work since I do not get emails in languages other than English. I believe this would allow only English emails. ok_locales en The CPanel Spam Assassin configuration page lists options for the following: blacklist_from required_score score whitelist_from Does anyone know where to put the above expression and if it will work? =============================
  2. I have recently been receiving Spam with Asian (Chinese or Korean?) looking characters in the subject line and body. I searched the forums for an easy way to block it through CPanel but could not find anything. I used the International setting in Outlook and this may have blocked some but not all. Besides, that doesn't work on my mobile devices (naturally). I would like to block them with Account Level Filtering or Spam Assassin. Is there an easy way for a beginner to do this? Thanks for your help!
  3. Alex, Thanks. I went to cPanel and saw what you did. I don’t know how I did it. Thanks for fixing it quickly. Al
  4. When I type in my website address, www.partners4success.net, I am directed to a TotalChoice Hosting web page that says the following: WELCOME TO YOUR NEW WEB SITE! PLEASE REVIEW YOUR WELCOME EMAIL. WELCOME TO TOTALCHOICE HOSTING I also receive a popup message, “Your ClickChatCold Account does not exist. Please visit www.clickchatsold.com to create your Live Chat account.” I can access my website with the following address http://partners4success.net/index.html I used to be able to access it with www.partners4success.net. I do not know how long this problem has be
  5. An update for anyone who may have the same problem. The name server change is still working after a year!
  6. It has been a little over a month and no problems. Changing name servers may have been the issue .. go figure!
  7. Andy, I got access to my web site about an hour after changing nameservers. This could be coincidence, could be the problem. I have been running five days now with no problem. One month and I might cautiously declare success. Thanks for the advice to everyone. Al
  8. Susie, Welcome to the forum. I am new to this forum also. You will fine the people very helpful. If customers are going to upload photos and fill out forms, ensure you have strong, up to date virus protection. I was involved with my local soccer club website that allowed people to fill out forms and such, and they were hit with a virus that propagated to people's machines who accessed the site's form page. My virus protection protected my computer, but many people had problems. I am not too sure how it happened to the web site, but it did. My hobby is photography so I look forward to
  9. Thanks for the idea, Andy. The DNS servers were pointing to NS3.TOTALCHOICENETWORKS.COM & NS4... I will change them and see what happens. The domain name people say this takes 24 to 36 hours to go throughout the internet, so we'll wait and see how this works. I appreciate your help. Al
  10. Well Bruce, I really haven't sorted it out yet. The problem has occurred twice since then, including tonight. I called the ISP and spent a little over an hour on the phone with them. They were having problems access the web site, but they checked their blocked ports to make sure that they weren't blocking my site. They also reviewed this forum thread so they could see what we have done. They could not find a problem, although they promised to look into it some more. There was one interesting thing they noted, however. My ISP had bought out the local one about two years ago. When I had done
  11. I checked my host file and compared it to the link from Madmanmcp. My file matched what the link had, so there was nothing wrong with the file. For those who may be following this thread, I have received some tips through private message that I would like to post, especially if anyone else may be having this problem. I did the following (Microsoft Tech Support article links are in parenthesis) PING NSLOOKUP (NSLOOKUP) _____________________________________________ The private message tip concluded: The results of the nslookup helps a lot. What it tells me is that the DNS server that
  12. Unlucky for me, I get a chance to see if the host file is causing my problem because it is happening again. Once again, it is only on my Total Choice site. In addition to the comments, my host file has two lines. The first one is a numeric address (nnn.n.n.n, where n is a number). The second line is ::1. If safe, I’ll post the numeric address, let me know if necessary (don’t know if this should be a “secret” number from hackers).
  13. The host file would have been something good to look at before I reformatted the computers. I read about the files on Wikipedia after your post – there is some interesting information there (especially if there are any beginners reading this thread). I was suspecting a virus or malware on my network but discounted that because I am rigorous about virus protection software. It seems that the host file could have blocked me from access my site. Once again, why only my site I have no idea, and why intermittently also is a mystery. Considering I have been running longer since I reformatted than an
  14. Where would I find the host files? I agree that reformatting was overkill, but it was one of those diminishing return things that you read about all the time - project due, things not working, desperation. At least the computers run faster now.
  15. The ISP didn't help. They could see the site. I ended up reformating my computers and restablishing my network. This was a lot of work and it will take weeks to get things back to normal, but it had to be done. So far, things are working alright with access to my site. I still am intrigued that it was only my site that I could not access...
