Email Account Changes Posted by:admin on 2008-09-19 15:25:52
Dear Internet Customers:
This Thursday on September 18th 2008, Internet Services for Okeechobee will be migrating mail servers. This move will require all users to modify their E-mail program configurations slightly. As of the 18th, usernames will need to be formatted to include the "@okeechobee.com". So if your username is JohnD then you would modify this to be "JohnD@okeechobee.com".
Old Account Name
New Account Name
The incoming and outgoing mail servers will remain "mail.okeechobee.com" as will all other information concerning E-mail account configuration including your password.
NOTE: This does not effect your dial-up account settings!
If you have any questions about this move, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org We apologize for any inconvenience.
Phishing & Other Scams Posted by:Walt on 2006-11-01 11:21:30
What is Phishing?
“The act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft. The e-mail directs the user to visit a Web site where they are asked to update personal information, such as passwords and credit card, social security, and bank account numbers, that the legitimate organization already has. The Web site, however, is bogus and set up only to steal the user’s information.” (source: Webopedia.com)
Beware of ANY email claiming to be a bank, PayPal or Ebay stating that your account has limited access or you need to verify personal information to regain access. REAL banks and the like will NEVER do such a thing. These sites use the information that people enter for identity theft and other illegal activities!
If you feel you have received such an email you can forward it to this site to help stop it. Reportphish.org
Another scam we are seeing a lot of are lotteries, give-aways and the like. Some of the scammers may pretend to be an actual site that you are playing so they are harder to detect as a scam. NEVER give any of them personal information. Pay attention to the site in your address bar and verify it's the correct site you want. It may look correct visually on your screen but if it's a different site in the address bar then you know it's a scam site. Most of the time the scam says you are winning something that you never even played in the first place.
