Q: Under settings in webmail there is a section for rules - can I use this to stop Spam?
A: Yes you can, but be careful with the way you set them up. Rules are meant to help you sort your mail into folders if you use webmail. Most email clients like Outlook Express, have similar rules. These were not meant to stop spam, but if you tell the system to automatically discard emails with certain properties this will work. But be warned that the rules will work even if you have whitelisted the sender. For instance you may get lots of spam with the word "gift". If you set up a rule to discard all these emails and then your friend sends you an email with the word "gifted" in the subject line - it will be discarded as well.
Q: I received an e-mail from AOL telling us that some of our e-mail was undeliverable. We have not sent any e-mail from this address to the recipient listed in the e-mail below or to a second one about which we received the same message from AOL. Why would we be receiving these messages?
A: This is very common. When sending an email, saavy spammers can change the mail headers (code that makes the email work) so that it seems to be coming from any address they choose to use. What is happening here is that someone is using your email address name, even though the email is not going through your email account. Spammers are collecting email addresses from wherever they can get them and they will pick one of these addresses at random to use as a "from" address. Generally your address will be used for a few days and then they will switch to someone else. This is precisely why blacklisting spammers so seldom works - all we end up doing is blacklisting someone who is innocent of spamming and tomorrow the email will appear to come from a different address, so is not caught by the blacklist.
Q: Sometimes when I send mail, it does not "send" and I get a message similar to, "This system is not configured to relay mail from 'your email address' to 'recipient's email address'. What does this mean?
A: In your email program there is a setting to tell our server who you are before you send. All email programs do this before receiving, so if you do a send/receive your mail will go because the authentication is done first, but if you just send, and you have not done a receive for some minutes, then our server does not know who you are. Your email program needs to tell us.
In Outlook Express go to Tools / Accounts and choose the Mail tab.
Highlight your email account and click on Properties.
On the servers tab -at the bottom - under "Outgoing mail Server" is a check box labeled "My server requires authentication".
Please check this box and you will not have the same problem again.
If you are not using Outlook Express, your email program will have a similar setting. You will find it under "Account Properties", or "Change email settings" or something similar.
If you need help with this then please phone our 24/7 support line at 1-866-648-6617 and they will talk you through finding that setting.
