The purpose of WebWiz@rdry is to help our subscribers maximize the effectiveness of their website, thus providing them with expert advice and keeping them current on trends in the web world. WebWiz@rdry also includes a client profile, which we feel is a great way to introduce some of the fantastic clients that we work with to all of our subscribers.
Spam. We all detest it. Unfortunately it has become a regular part of our lives whether you receive it to your personal inbox, or your business account.
Fortunately, there are services/systems in place to minimize the chances of you receiving spam directly to your inboxes. By now, most email hosting companies have a Spam Security Service in place to minimize or even eliminate spam from coming directly to your inbox. Instead, the spam or suspected spam is "trapped" in a quarantine. You are then able to log in to the message centre to check for "false positives"-- email that is actually not spam, but contains something in the message that could be considered spam.
Our Spam Filtering System has detected and blocked a vast majority of spam attacks, and continues to release protections to stop the new mutations. Their capture rate is over 99%; however, the attack volumes are so large (in the hundreds of millions of messages) that a 1% passthrough rate means that a few messages may end up in your inbox.
The latest form of spam is bogus Microsoft downloaders and other messages that contain links to download malware. Spammers have created false Microsoft Outlook notifications and Amazon/World Pay confirmations, and added links that prompt users to download a fake update or invoice.
For best security practices, if you see any suspect security notifications or strange messages either in your inbox or in quarantine:
- Do not deliver these messages from your quarantine center to your inbox
- Delete these messages from your inbox
- Do not click on any links in the messages and do not open any attachments
- Visit the vendor/company's web site directly if you need to access any of the services listed in the suspect email
Thank you for your interest in WebWiz@rdry and REM Web Solutions.
Until next time,
"I would like to give a big thank you to the team at REM Web Solutions for all of their help over the years! I have been a client for many years, and I have developed 2 different websites with them. I have recently started a new business, and Rob and his team were invaluable in helping me get started and achieve my initial goals.
I am a professional proofreader, which means that I proofread fiction and non-fiction books, corporate reports, marketing material, website copy, textbooks, instruction manuals, and even college and university reports.
I offer a quick turn-around time, and accurate, comprehensive work. I always make sure my clients understand the changes that I have suggested, as well as the reasons why I have made them.
I work electronically and on paper, which means that my clients could be anywhere in the world. This is one reason why having an effective and well designed website is so important!
The technology that REM Web Solutions offers allows me to change my website at any time, and with ease. I have just updated my site, as I am currently offering a special offer to new clients - 50% off their first project!
If you, or someone you know, could use my services, please visit www.amproofreading.com, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to doing business with you!"
