We've had a few reports of hacked accounts this week. We won't ask you for your password or anything that can be used to access your account (probably someone trying to trick you if you are asked). Ensure your secret questions and passwords are not easily guessed or brute-forced. Usual "good security" stuff.

There are way to many features to list here!
I guess the first thing you guys will need to know how much - We are charging $20/year US for an account, $10 US/year for each additional account after that. Once paid, your quota will be adjusted up to 1001MB! We're not charging for the first 30 days of service, so feel free to sign up on the left and take a look around!
As for how - There is a button in the menu-bar called "Account Mgmt" that will allow you to send a payment through our automated system (using PayPal). If you prefer to not use the automated system - We still support paying by mail!
A Quick Word on Viruses!
It seems like there's a new virus every time I turn around! As always - Someone needs to be on top of these things, and it looks like the guys at Symantec have gone the extra mile!
They have a slick little on-line virus scanner, which
can tell you what you need to fix - And the removal tools to help you do it!
For a more pro-active solution - The people at Grisoft have an
antivirus package that I've recommended to a number of people.
The "single home user" package can be downloaded for free, and works pretty darn good if you ask me!
While we're at it - There have been numerous security holes found in all commonly used
versions of Windows. You will want to use the 'Windows Update' feature to ensure you have all of the latest security updates.
We have our own mail checking utility! Just download it to a location of your choice and run it. For the
most part it's pretty much straightforward - It will check your email
on a timed interval (which you can set). You can double-click on the
icon in your system tray to have it re-display the last message that
appeared. Right-clicking on the icon in the system tray gives you a
number of functions to choose from as well.
