Server Level Security Details 

  • There is no third-party or client FTP access to the domains.  Sound Strategies staff members are the only ones the FTP access.
  • There is no third-party or client server access.   A limited group of Sound Strategies senior staff members are the only ones with server access.
  • All access to the server is further limited by IP address.
  • Several third-party tools are installed on the server to prevent incursions including brute force password hacking.
  • The file permissions within EVERY WordPress application are carefully controlled so that known vulnerabilities cannot be exploited.

Access Your Email from Anywhere by entering the URL http://mail.yourdomain.com

Important Consideration for Outlook Users
If you are sending email from your Gmail account, the sent items will appear in your Outlook Inbox, to correct this you need to create a rule in Outlook that will move mail that is sent from your email address to the Sent box (Tools –> Rules)
 
Important Consideration for Blackberry Users
If you are using a Blackberry or other mobile device and do not want to see duplicate copies of what was sent when using your GMail account, you need to log into the Blackberry internet site and create a filter with your email address in the “contains” field and selecting “do not forward messages to handheld”
