Search Engines

To make things easier to submit a site to the various Search Engines, we recommend AceBit's Hello Engines currently in version 10 for under £100 and this version will allow submission of up to ten different websites (Free version allows submission for two websites).

Also available is the professional version of Hello Engines, called AESOPS 10 which currently costs approximately €350/£280 for an unlimited number of web sites.

 

Remote Assistance

If you are after Remote Assistance and we have agreed to this, we will probably connect via Teamviewer to your desktop. Please download this Quick Connect program in readiness. We will require the ID and password once this is run.

If we require FTP access, please arrange for us to receive temporary FTP access to your server and let us know the details, URL, username and password. Thank you.

If we are de-bugging something like Joomla or phpList please ensure we have the access details, url, username and password.

You run your email program, Outlook Express, Outlook and Thunderbird etc and download your new emails. Without clicking on the unread emails, how can you tell if they are genuine or spam or worse still, infected?

You could try to work out from the title or sender details if they are genuine, but if you've got the Preview Frame enabled, you've just told the spammer that your email address is valid, or you've just infected your machine.

The best way is to run a previewer type program BEFORE you download your emails. The best program I've found for this is MailWasher. There is a free version for when you have just a single email address, but if like me, you've a number of them in an attempt to limit the amount of spam you receive, then the pro version is for you.

This allows you to add your email accounts to Mailwasher, and once setup all you need to do is instead of running your email program, run Mailwasher instead. This searches your email accounts for any messages in your inbox(es) and displays them in a format that shows any link as well as where it actually points to. For example a spoofed link could suggest that it goes to your bank, instead Mailwasher shows you that it in fact is a falsified link sending you to a fake site in Poland for example.

You can mark all such fake, spam, and infected emails as spam and rejected by deleting them from the server, thus preventing them from ever accessing your computer. Once you've cleaned up your inboxes, Mailwasher loads your preferred mail program and you can now deal with a reduced number of emails safe in the knowledge that your emails are genuine and what you really want to receive.
