"ON THE   

As a Neighborhood Watch Block captian
of over 10 years,
and with a fervor to help others,
I have found some very informative websites
that can help us all be more
aware, informed and healthy overall. So…

False Spam Detection on Out-going Mail through Verizon
         Are you a Verzion.net email user & have found an email in your Windows Live Mail outbox that just won't seem to send? Did you receive a "An unknown error has occurred. The message you attempted to send was determined to be spam. Please visit http://www.verizon.net/spamfaq for more information." notice from Verizon?
    If you believe Verizon erred in identifying one of your outgoing emails as spam, here are some steps you can take:
  1. Check the content of your email for hyper-links and web addresses and remove any in your reply.
    • Pointers:
    • If you put a web address in your reply, with or without the "www.", Verizon will detect it as spam.
    • If you include the original message you are replying to in your reply, and the original message contains links, it's okay. Verizon doesn't seem to detect links in that area of the of the email reply, only in the text you actually write.
    • If you put a space after the web address and before the ".com", Verizon doesn't detect it as spam. For example: "www. mistisjewelry. com" would work, but "www.mistisjewelry.com" wouldn't work.
  2. Send the original message to Verizon.
    • Please be sure that the above email address is the sole recipient.
    • Do not add other recipients in the "To", "CC" or "BCC" fields, or they will not receive your message.
    • Do not alter the original message by adding or removing comments, text, or attachments.
      What happens:
    • According to Verizon, within an hour of receiving your report, they will reevaluate the digital signature and, if the message is believed to be legitimate, they will adjust their spam filters as appropriate.
    • Please note that Verizon won’t notify you about the outcome of their review. Rather, you should try resending the message 30 – 60 minutes after submitting your report to Verizon.
  3. If that doesn't work, per tech support, go to Verizon's Whitelist page and submitt an inquiry there. I'm in the process of trying that, but it says on the form that it is for emails from others you are not receiving, or email to other Verizon customers only. I still tried, though. I'll post the results.
  4. As a last resort, call Verizon at 1-800-837-4966 or have them call you through the "Call Me" button. (In tab #1, choose "Internet", tab #2, choose "Email", tab #3, choose "Call me".) Online live chat tech support is slow and pretty ineffective, although they are very polite.

Why Am I Getting this Pop-Up Ad?
Here's a site that will help answer your questions, AND help you get rid of them!

Here's another highly rated site that will help.
Once on the site, click on "Free Version Download" under the little man with his arms raised. After it downloads, run it & then quarentine all malicious items found.

Those two actions will clear up a lot of problems on your computer. If the nasty Rockettab ad keeps coming up, the following is what worked for me:

1. Open Internet Explorer. In the upper right hand corner, click on the sprocket to go to settings.
2. Select "Manage add-ons".
3. Select "Accelerators".
4. Don't do anything with "E-mail with Windows Live". This is what makes your email program come up when you click on an email link
like the one below on my webpage.
5. Disable the two below it, by clicking on the "Disable" button near the bottom of the open window.
6. Restart your computer. Then open Internet Explorer to test it out. If you still get pop-ups, try the Geek Squad.
