|New Windows malware: turn off autorun?||
A number of new virus and malware threats have appeared for users of Windows XP and Internet Explorer recently.
|A guide to spam||
You’ve received it, you don’t want it, you don’t understand who it’s from or what it’s about. So just press Delete. Or, if you want to recognise, report or block some of the offensive, fraudulent or just plain annoying email that very occasionally gets through GreenNet’s anti-spam systems (or that you’ve come across with other email providers), here is a rundown of the main types.
The facility is located in outer London.
|Domain Registry of America scam||
We have had several reports from GreenNet members about "phoney bills" relating to domain names they have registered through us.
If you have received a letter in the post from "Domain Registry of America" (DRoA) or "Domain Renewal Group" urging you to pay them for renewing your domain name, please ignore it. It's a scam, so don't worry about your domain and do not send them any money.
|How to avoid email spam||
E-mail spam, also called junk email or unsolicited bulk email (UBE), is now an unfortunate fact of life for most internet users. GreenNet does more than most to remove spam. What can you do to reduce your chance of getting spam, or to deal with it if you do?
|Sending email via SMTPS||
In order to provide additional security when you use email, we intend to enable a feature called “secure SMTP“ from Tuesday, 10 October 2006. Most people will not notice any difference. However, for people who use Eudora versions 4, 5 or 6 for Windows, it is likely that you will need to make one or two changes to your Eudora options, which are described below.
