    Spaghetti and beans

    Bottled water?!? BOTTLED WATER??? Are you insane?

    Spaghetti and beans

    It's my recipe. :angry: Water is water. Whatever you use, that will be the proper amount.

    Commercial 'search' spam?

    Once I was trying to clean a stubborn spot from the floor. I tried some chlorine bleach; it didn't work. Then, with some bleach remaining on the floor, I tried using some ammonia. Some fumes began to rise from the floor. Then I remembered reading that chlorine+ammonia is how you make mustard gas.

    ConstantContact

    This an old thread, but it looks like the relevant place for this post. Is the constantcontact DOT com of 2014/2015 more reputable than they were in 2005? Some legitimate organizations with which I correspond use constantcontact DOT com for their email announcements. The URLs in these announcements, which often are necessary to visit in order to read the full content of the email message, contain long strings of letters and numbers. What information, encoded in these strings, am I providing to constantcontact and the subscribing organization, by visiting these URLs? Maybe I should tell the subscribing organizations: "I don't visit constantcontact DOT com pages. If you want to communicate with me, please provide the full text of any message you wish to send me in the email itself." What is your opinion on this?

    Commercial 'search' spam?

    I find that C2H5OH in sufficient doses is helpful in counteracting the effects of 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine.

    Report email rejected by someone

    If Comcast won't cooperate, an alternative is to use a third-party email service provider. My ISP is also a large company whose policies I don't like, so I only use their internet connectivity, and use a different service for email. That may or may not be an acceptable choice for you.

    Commercial 'search' spam?

    Don't Departments of Motor Vehicles sell their customer records to anyone who wants them? I thought that was the case, unless it's changed recently. What about this (caution, site may not be safe): dmvfiles DOT org
  9. Since I have a web hosting account with my own domain, with Cpanel and shell access (GNU/Linux), in theory I should be able to set up my own Sneakemail-like functionality, using my domain. This would only be for my personal use, not a service like sneakemail DOT com. Has anyone written scri_pts to do this? Are there any pitfalls I'm overlooking?

    Sneakemail

    Thanks.
  11. Dave_L

    Sneakemail

    Sneakemail is different from typical forwarding services in that it creates a temporary email address for use as the from-address, so that you can reply without revealing your real from-address. Is that a factor when reporting spam received at a Sneakemail address? I.e., should anything special be done? Or should the report be submitted normally? I've already added Sneakemail as a Mailhost.

    CESmail System changes

    Ah, the old "cesmail flag" trick. Thanks for posting the explanation.

    CESmail System changes

    According to http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/topic/14392-important-spamcop-announcement/?view=findpost&p=90126: Doesn't that mean that you should never have to "add fuel"?

    POODLE ATTACK

    Thanks, that answered my question.

    POODLE ATTACK

    From https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disable-ssl-30/?src=api In my firefox settings (about:config): security.tls.version.max = 3 security.tls.version.min = 0 To disable SSL v3, shouldn't max be set to 2, rather setting min to 1? Or do I misunderstand something here?

    Forwards not working

    That's why one of the options is to discard the messages. If the account didn't have this feature, it would simply mean that the server automatically discards everything. This way, I have control over it. One advantage to that, as I mentioned earlier, is the ability to support arbitrary plus-addresses (if I wanted to do that).

    Forwards not working

    What's wrong with a "catch-all" address? On my hosting account, I can set up the "default" address handling however I like: discard-with-error, forward to another address, pipe to a scri_pt, or drop.

    Keep getting hacked please read

    I view Mac address filtering as analogous to locking your door. It's not going to stop a determined thief, but it makes it a little harder for him; he may leave you alone and choose an easier victim. It definitely shouldn't be your only layer of protection.

  20. If that doesn't get any results, you could also try contacting CISCO: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/siteassets/contacts/index.html That page has a toll-free phone number and an email form. I'm not saying it will produce results, but it's something else to try.

    flood control

    One reason, maybe the main one, for the search flood control is that searching can stress the database backend and overload the server. It's not a issue for normal use, but when overdone can significantly degrade a web server's performance. There probably aren't actual users doing enough searches to matter, but there could be hundreds of search engines hitting the site over and over again. My only gripe is when I don't get any results from a search, possibly because of a mistake I made on the search form, and then have to wait 20 seconds before I can try again.

    Forwards not working

    I haven't actually tried creating any plus addresses in my web hosting service control panel, but it lets you specify that incoming email with no defined forwarding address be sent to a shell scri_pt. I've experimented with that feature briefly, and it worked. I suppose it could be used to process plus addresses, but I haven't actually tried it either.

    Forwards not working

    Thanks for those details. So if an email is sent to NOBODY+TAG[at]CESMAIL.NET, and the forwarding address is SOMEBODY[at]EXAMPLE.COM, then the email will be forwarded to SOMEBODY+TAG[at]EXAMPLE.COM ? I'm forwarding to my own domain, so I could theoretically handle that. But at this point, it may not be worth the trouble to set up, especially since I already got rid of the plus-addresses I had been using. I wonder why CISCO couldn't have told us about this?
  24. Thanks for the "wget" tip. I found that wget returns a zero result if the URL works, and non-zero if it fails, which is helpful for using it in a scri_pt.

    Forwards not working

    So that confirms that Plus Addresses are NOT supported now?
