The five most dangerous email subjects to watch for

Posted on December 12, 2013. Filed under: Anti-Virus, Email, Malware, Security | Tags: , , , , , |

ZDnet warns of The five most dangerous email subjects to watch for.  This will have attachments to open or link to sites that will infect you with malware (viruses, trojans, root kits, etc.).

The current (but NOT the only) ones are:

1. Invitation to connect on LinkedIn
2. Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
3. Dear Customer
4. Comunicazione importante
5. Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender

There are plenty more, but they want you to connect to someplace, and they are getting to be very good about fooling you, so be careful — messages may come from FRIENDS, RELATIVES or people you know who unknowingly have malware on their computers already that sends this stuff out.

PROTOCOL.BY – where to contact you

Posted on March 21, 2011. Filed under: Email, Gmail (Google Mail), Online Software, Phones, text messaging (SMS), Twitter | Tags: , , , , , , , |

PROTOCOL.BY by the MIT Media Lab is an attempt to show people how best to contact you.

Email?  Phone? Text? Twitter? Carrier pigeon (okay, that’s not one of the options, but you get the idea).

You can describe what you check, and what to use for what kind of communication (for example, email the links and phone numbers and details, but tweet the brief hello messages).

As the options multiply, this is a great idea for a service.  In Beta, but working.

Send A Fax From A Computer For Free

Posted on February 3, 2009. Filed under: Email, Online Software | Tags: , , |

[updated 2009.2.8.a]

MakeUseOf has an article on sending faxes for free using TPC.

Method One: One way is using a browser. You just need to fill in the recipient name, destination fax, your valid email address and the body of the fax. The site maintains a dynamic coverage list. You can enter the fax number to ensure that it is reachable before you actually send the fax.

Method Two: using regular email from your PC. In that case, any email software can be used to fax from computer. To send a fax via email, you just need to start your mail software and compose a new email message.

Features:

  • Free online fax sending service.
  • Send faxes world wide (see current coverage list).
  • Option to quickly check and verify if the fax number is covered by TCP.
  • Send fax using browser or email client software.
  • Desktop client is also supported.
  • Similar websites: FaxZero, K7 and  Scanr.

Other sites offering free fax service is FaxZero which sends in .doc or .pdf format, eFax, and freeFAX.  FreeFAX, for example, adds advertising: “The fax recipient will receive a cover sheet which contains a third of a page advertisement along with sender and recipient information. Again, this ad helps to support the free fax service” — which should be expected with any free service online.

Be aware that privacy may not be guaranteed with such services.
