Paid mode gives you the same thing as Sponsored mode, without the advertisements, but you need to pay for and register it. Light mode is Eudora without the bells and whistles, but also without advertisements.

    When you install Eudora it will be in Sponsored mode by default. You can change the mode by choosing 'Payment & Registration' from the help menu.

    These instructions assume that you are using Eudora 6.x in Sponsored mode for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. The configuration might be slightly different for other versions of Eudora.

E-Store

  • 產品圖片處理

    產品圖片處理


    對於包裝精美的產品,實物和網上看到的圖片可能出現少許差別,而我們的系統預設主要產品圖片自動裁放及優化技術,每張上載到何服器的圖片會自動產生合符最佳效果的優化分圖,並非其他公司只改變圖片闊度及高度的原圖,所以在您上載圖片後再往商店主頁看到的圖片(經優化)是較美觀及低失真。

    而我們建議您在數碼相機或圖片掃描器取得的圖片擋案,最好先把背景除去,這可利用一些圖像處理軟件如PhotoImpact或Photoshop等完成,上載的圖擋必須是JPEG或GIF格式。

    雖然我們的系統能把上載的主要產品圖片優化及建立額外的縮圖(非主要圖片例如額外上載的附加圖片將不會進行優化及縮圖處理),但仍建議先把欲上載的圖片自已修飾,這可有效減少儲存空間的佔用、節省訪問網站人仕下載整頁內容的時間、增強網站整體的美觀感等。

    建議圖片符合以下規則:
    • JPG (Jpeg擋案交換格式)

    • 圖擋原尺吋少於640x480Pixel(像素)

    • 原圖擋案體積少於120Kbyte

    • 盡量調節原圖至較清晰及去除背景

    • 所有圖片的尺吋及內含影像盡量保持比例一致

    • 所有圖片的風格盡量相近

    不建議但仍可使用的規則:
    • GIF (圖型交換格式) (只能共存256種顏色)

    • SWF (Flash向量動畫文件格式)

    • 圖擋原尺吋少於800x600Pixel(像素)

    • 原圖擋案體積少於300Kbyte

    不應採用的規則:
    • BMP (未被壓縮的點陣圖格式)

    • PNG (攜帶型網路圖片格式)

    • TIFF (標籤圖像文件格式)

    • 圖擋原尺吋巨大 (闊度800Pixel以上)

    • 原圖擋案體積巨大 (300Kbyte以上)

    另外,如同其他檔案一樣,網站內使用的圖片“檔案名稱”應只由英文或數字組成,絕不可包含“中文”、“符號”、“空格”。

    *** The above information is for reference only, Please seek independent technical advice if found necessary.

    • 顧客持有的“電子禮券”只適用於您的“線上商店”

    • 由於沒有途徑修改顧客持有的“電子禮券”資料,所以在您的商店產品內,例如銷售的電子禮券,應註明“不可折回現金”

Glossary

  • Font

    Font


    In typography, a typeface is a coordinated set of glyphs designed with stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numerals, and punctuation marks; it may also include ideograms and symbols, or consist entirely of them, for example, mathematical or map-making symbols. The term typeface is often conflated with font, a term which, historically, had a number of distinct meanings before the advent of desktop publishing; these terms are now effectively synonymous when discussing digital typography. A helpful and still valid distinction between font and typeface is a font's status as a discrete commodity with legal restrictions, while typeface designates a visual appearance or style not immediately reducible to any one foundry's production or proprietary control.

    The art and craft of designing typefaces is called type design. Designers of typefaces are called type designers, and often typographers. In digital typography, type designers are also known as font developers or font designers.

    The size of typefaces and fonts is traditionally measured in points; point has been defined differently at different times, but now the most popular is the Desktop Publishing Point. Font size is also commonly measured in millimeters (mm) and inches.

  • Greylisting

    Greylisting


    Greylisting
    Greylisting reduces the amount of unsolicited e-mail (SPAM) delivered to e-mail addresses by capitalizing on spammers’ reluctance to configure their mail servers properly.

    Since most spammers do not retry sending email, the greylisting initially refuses all mail from unknown sources and accepts them on a later retry. This technology can cut spam as much as 95% of spam.

  • Browser

    Browser


    Browser is a software application that enables a user to display and interact with text, images, and other information typically located on a web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network. Text and images on a web page can contain hyperlinks to other web pages at the same or different website. Web browsers allow a user to quickly and easily access information provided on many web pages at many websites by traversing these links. Web browsers format HTML information for display, so the appearance of a web page may differ between browsers.

    Some of the web browsers available for personal computers include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Netscape, and Opera in order of descending popularity (as of August 2006). Web browsers are the most commonly used type of HTTP user agent. Although browsers are typically used to access the World Wide Web, they can also be used to access information provided by web servers in private networks or content in file systems.

  • Domain name

    Domain name


    On the Internet, the domain name stores and associates many types of information with domain names; most importantly, it translates domain names (computer hostnames) to IP addresses. It also lists mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain. In providing a worldwide keyword-based redirection service, DNS is an essential component of contemporary Internet use.

    Useful for several reasons, the domain name pre-eminently makes it possible to attach easy-to-remember domain names (such as "ec2biz.com") to hard-to-remember IP addresses (such as 202.123.84.161). People take advantage of this when they recite URLs and e-mail addresses. In a subsidiary function, the domain name system makes it possible for people to assign authoritative names without needing to communicate with a central registrar each time.

  • Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1

    Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1


    Microsoft is advising its customers to stop using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm in cryptographic applications such as SSL/TLS encryption and code signing.

    In a security advisory issued by the company, Microsoft said that it would stop recognising certificates using the algorithm after January 1, 2016. After this date, certificate authorities (CAs) that issue certificates under the Windows Root Certificate Program will only be able to issue SHA-2 certificates.

    According to Microsoft, SHA-1 is used in 98 percent of all certificates issued worldwide. However, it also claims that since 2005 researchers have discovered collision attacks against the algorithm that mean it no longer meets its security standards. Although the announcement to drop SHA-1 comes today, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has been advising government agencies to move to SHA-2 since December 2011.

    The ASD also has a slightly different opinion of when the collision attacks were first known, stating that "theoretically impressive attacks" against SHA-1 were known since 2004, but that they were not practical to implement.

    ASD has already removed the "weakened but not broken" SHA-1 algorithm from use in its Information Security Manual.

    The US National Institute of Standards and Technology, which published the algorithm, also stated in September 2012 that US federal agencies should stop using SHA-1.
