Email Tutorial

  • Setup fetch email using Yahoo! Mail

    Setup fetch email using Yahoo! Mail


    Why Should I Use Fetch Mail Instead of an Email Forwarder?

    We are committed to improving the stability of services.

    Unfortunately, it is very common for mail forwarding to cause blacklisting with many large email providers. This most commonly occurs when large amounts of mail are forwarded and then marked as spam after it has been received in the end user's inbox. This results in our server's sending reputation being penalized since it was the last server to send the mail. Ultimately, our server will be blacklisted with the email provider and it will affect all of other users on the same server.

    A solution to this is to disabled mail forwarding altogether. change to using mail fetcher, you can access mail in a other system without having the mail routed through that system's server. This way, you can mark a message as spam without it affecting our email server's reputation.

    The following articles explain how to set up mail fetching for other services and are for reference only.

  • What is mail policy and email limits?

    What is mail policy and email limits?


    Mail Limits

    There is an maximum amount of emails which can be send out per hour is 30 emails from one account or 100 emails per domain and 300 emails per day, this limit is also applied "Web Hosting Service", "Towards Mailing Lists" and "Online E-Store System". Focus Network Company reserves the violation of any of the foregoing may result in immediate deactivate or termination upon any indication of such activity without notice.

    Many of our servers have a 60 pop checks per hour limit per email address.? If you go over this you're likely to get a wrong password error message saying login incorrect. Just wait an hour and it will automatically unlock you. to prevent this from happening again make sure to disable auto checking or at least set it to something higher such as 10 minutes.

    Any mailing list larger than 2000 will require a dedicated server solution from us. Note: dividing one large list into smaller lists to get below this limit is not allowed.

    We have a maximum size of emails of 50 MByte and under, any email over 50 MByte will be automatically rejected, please use your FTP to transfer big files!

    Mailing Lists Rules

    1. Anytime you're sending a message no matter how large your e-mail list is you must throttle it.? We recommend you throttle it to at the very least sending 1 email every 6 seconds. If the mailing list software you're using does not allow you to throttle you must switch to something else. We recommend Mailman which can be found in your control panel under PLESK. If you do not throttle and you try sending let's say 1500 emails the server will try sending all 1500 in 1 second which is not possible. This will cause the server load to go very high and for the entire server to be sluggish until this process is completed. It is our job to keep the server up and running without being sluggish. Anyone who causes the servers load to go high will be suspended and the process will be terminated. If you choose not to throttle you will most likely be suspended for crashing the server without notice.

    2. Any mailing list over 100 emails is only allowed to be sent to during off-peak times to prevent high server loads. Off peak times qualify as all day Saturday and Sunday, and 1am - 8 am eastern time M-F.

    3. You are not allowed to mail to a mailing list you were given or purchased. This is spamming because they never agreed to you personally sending them mail. We do not care and how you justify it this is spam and will result in termination of the offending account.

    4. Any unsolicited e-mail being sent will result in termination of the offending account without notice. We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail.

    “支援服務記錄”為您提供完善而有效率的客戶服務處理,使用這項獨特的功能,您可以集中管理所有經由商店發出的查詢,更可擺脫以往依靠電子郵件的零碎方式。

    無論顧客針對一般事項、產品、訂單、以及合作的諮詢,所有雙方的對答都會被獨立而順序地記錄,而且在檢視處理進度裡,雙方都能由下至上了解當前的最近狀態。

    我們強列建議您或其他相關的管理員,直接依賴這項“支援服務記錄”集中處理所有客服查詢,並且放棄舊模式的電子郵件作業。

    進入“支援服務記錄”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訊息中心/電子報”

    2. 點擊左選單的“支援服務記錄”

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.

  • 「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿

    「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿


    所有個人或企業,於2009年2月3日起可以註冊「.tel」域名,作為對外溝通的渠道。這新域名特別針對流動上網,據報道,美國意大利法拉利車廠與《哈利波特》小說作家羅琳、微軟公司等等都已率先註冊該域名。

    「.tel」域名的特點是讓企業將所有聯繫方法,如電話、傳真、電郵等放在「.tel」,讓網民更方便與企業聯絡,甚至直接透過網站撥打電話或發送文字短信。企業還可以用它通過即時消息(Instant Messaging)工具、博客平台甚至語音電話(VoIP)服務等低成本通信渠道來降低其成本,從而做到既省錢又能加強客戶服務。

    「.tel」域名不同其他網域名稱的部分,在於不需有自己的IP,就能直接有完整網頁的呈現,並透過創新技術使得網頁內的聯絡資訊或關鍵字得以直接儲存,並同時被大眾所查閱,在透過其他常用軟體的支援下,點選EMAIL, MSN ID, SKYPE ID 或地址, 都能呈現極佳的互動效果。

    Telnic表示,他們會以「先到先得」的方式處理申請,預計一些極具吸引力的域名將很快會被搶購一空。

    全球網民在香港時間2009年2月3日23時起,就可到Telnic的網站 http://telnic.org 登記,每個.tel域名售300美元,為期3年,之後每年20美元。

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.

  • PHPwiki

    PHPwiki


    PhpWiki is a WikiWikiWeb clone in PHP. A WikiWikiWeb is a site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Multiple storage backends, dynamic hyperlinking, themeable, scriptable by plugins, full authentication, ACL's.

    A WikiWikiWeb is a web site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Linking is done automatically on the server side; all pages are stored in a database. This may sound rather simplistic, but a Wiki is a very unique way to collaborate on the Web. I set up a few while working at the New York Times on the Web, and the technical staff really took to them in a big way. They wrote 500 pages in just a few months (all to document the internal systems). The addictive quality of a Wiki is that making pages is as simple as making a link to them. If they don't yet exist, the page link will be followed by a hyperlinked question mark; follow that link and you can define the new page. With this setup, you can update and create pages from anywhere there is a web browser handy. Visit the PhpWiki here at Sourceforge. You can try it out yourself! Installation of PhpWiki is as simple as untarring the source distribution. PhpWiki works right out of the box. You will want to make configuration changes later for better performance and permanence, or to run PhpWiki off a relational database like MySQL, mSQL or Postgresql.

  • e-Commerce

    e-Commerce


    Electronic Commerce is exactly analogous to a marketplace on the Internet.

    Electronic Commerce (also referred to as EC, e-commerce eCommerce or ecommerce) consists primarily of the distributing, buying, selling, marketing and servicing of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks.

    The information technology industry might see it as an electronic business application aimed at commercial transactions; in this context, it can involve electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, e-marketing, online marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), automated inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Electronic commerce typically uses electronic communications technology of the World Wide Web, at some point in the transaction's lifecycle, although of course electronic commerce frequently depends on computer technologies other than the World Wide Web, such as databases, and e-mail, and on other non-computer technologies, such as transportation for physical goods sold via e-commerce.
