|Anti-Spam personal mail accounts.
Tired of Spam? Not interested in making $70,000/year working from home, or getting hot
stock tips and investment opportunities from fake addresses? Spam is the unsolicited
phone call of the internet world. Unfortunatly, there is no unlisted number. People are
forced to give out their email in online transactions, and contrary to popular belief
or promises from vendors, these lists are sold.
To combat this problem, people began creating filters to stop email from certain addresses.
The filter lists would grow and require constant attention. Even worse, spammers would use
fake addresses that could be easily changed, ie. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com,
etc. Something more drastic needed to be done.
Enter the CyberShot Personal Mail Filter. The way the mail filter works is the reverse of
the above case. Instead of saying who can't mail you, it says who can mail
you, similar to having an unpublished number and giving it out to only your friends. It also
has the abililty for people to request addition to your list online. You have to grant
premission for a person to email you. Addresses that are not allowed receive a warning email
stating that the email was not sent because they were not authorized. All the lists are
managed online using a web browser in the Admin section.
- Will I know if someone tried to mail me and it bouced? Yes. There is an option to
capture email addresses that were not allowed. These addresses can then be added to your
- Will I need to change my mail settings? No. Nothing changes on your machine. Your
filter mail address would be <YOURNAME>@cybershot.com and all mail would be forwarded to
your current email account.
- How much does the service cost? The service is free to CyberShot hosting clients.
Personal accounts are $2.99/month.
