This week marks the beginning of a test of a new spam prevention appliance. If you have a wingnet.net address, your e-mail address will be protected more from spam than it was previously during the test of this equipment. Also, if you have received e-mails about quarantined messages, read more to find out what it means. If you have your own domain name and are tired of getting junk e-mail, contact WingNET for information on how we can reduce your spam levels tremendously.
After WingNET begins the testing of this equipment on a full scale level, you may begin to see e-mails that look like this:
Welcome to the WingNET MX Server. This message contains the information you will need to access your Spam Quarantine and Preferences.
Your account has been set to the following username and password:
Access your Spam Quarantine directly using the following link: https://mx.wingnet.net:email@example.com&password=asdf73ff9e13c346e4cff7f47deb7e9b&et=1164144548
What this means is that the spam protection equipment has held some messages that it THINKS is spam, but it is giving you the chance to look at the messages first. If you do nothing, the messages will be deleted automatically after a set period of time. Currently that is 21 days, but that may change in the future.
As well, you may receive a message once per day that looks like this:
This is your quarantine summary from the WingNET MX Server.
You have 2 messages in your spam quarantine inbox.
- Click on the Deliver link to have a message delivered to your mailbox.
- Click on the Whitelist link to have a message delivered to your mailbox and whitelist the sender so that his/her messages will no longer be quarantined.
- Click the Delete link to have the message deleted from your quarantine.
To view your entire quarantine inbox or manage your preferences, click here.
You can click on the Deliver link if you want one of the messages to be delivered to you. You can whitelist an addresses if you recognize the sender. Or you can delete the message by choosing that option.
Note: If you get a LOT of quarantined mail, there is no need to click Delete on every message. That can be tiring. Let it be automatically deleted after 21 days.
If you experience problems during this testing period, please let us know. As well, if you have a testimonial you would like to share, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Spam Testimonial” in the Subject: line.
Enjoy getting less spam!
