Publications on request play another important role. It may be articles, reports, brochures, schemes, ebooks, audio, video files, any electronic media may be emailed inrepparttar body ofrepparttar 109567 email message or as an attachment to every person immediately on their request and to an email box they considered to berepparttar 109568 fastest to download from, presumably, ISP's.

As strange as it may seem, autoresponder may be used for tracking response rate as well. For instance, by putting slightly different autoresponder email addresses on different web-pages you can easily count how many requests came from each page, testing which web-page generatesrepparttar 109569 biggest interest.

To track ezine advertisement response you will also have to setup a different autoresponders for each ezine you plan to run your advert in. Atrepparttar 109570 end you will see how many people each ezine has sent you and generatedrepparttar 109571 biggest income.

Dominating majority of web-hosting plans, offered today onrepparttar 109572 Internet market, come with simple, usually unlimited, email autoresponders. That means they can help in 4 main cases that we have discussed above, except for timely delivered emails. That is because they imply one-time reply email, so you can setup (1) customer support emails, (2) subscription notifications to both your subscriber and yourself, (4) publications on request, (5) response tracking, but (3) timely delivered emails like email follow-ups or courses.

In order to offer automatic, say, weekly, email courses you will have to look for:

1) custom autoresponder internet application (script); 2) 3rd party autoresponder providers.

The rule of thumb is to know your needs and resources. First choice is preferable if you know what FTP and CGI mean or have someone with basic knowledge of how scripts are setup, want to install it once and forever, have time and money to make one-time investment. You can even try to find free script that in some cases may be even quicker to setup than sign up for some 3rd party service.

Autoresponder service, provided by independent Internet company, is easier for new comers as all technical stuff will be hidden, leaving simple web-interface to manage your autoresponders. For such convenience Internet companies will charge you on monthly or yearly basis, although there are free so-called adware autoresponders available.

In general you can find discounted all-in-one services, hosting offers or mailing lists coming with follow-up autoreponders and allowing you to save money.

You're getting warmer, but this still isn't going to dorepparttar trick. It's a good way to stop packet sniffers from searching for key words in a file, but unfortunately it is not as secure as you might think. If you ever forget a Zip, Word or Excel password, don't worry, just downloadrepparttar 109566 password tool from Last Bit Software, it works very well. There are many other packages out onrepparttar 109567 Internet but Last Bit's tool isrepparttar 109568 most robust and easy to use, if a bit slower that some others.

So what can I do about it? ==========================

OK, so now that you understandrepparttar 109569 threat, what can you do about it?

. Stop usingrepparttar 109570 Internet? - More than a few professionals are returning to phone calls and faxes for all their important communications.

. Complain to your IT department? - If you have an IT department in your company this is a good place to start. But didrepparttar 109571 spam mail stop when you complained about it to your LAN administrator? Unfortunately he is almost as helpless as you are. . Encrypt your communications with PKI, etc. - For email this is a bit drastic, and can be very expensive, especially since you will need to install a key on each PC and coordinate this withrepparttar 109572 receivers of your email messages, your IT organization, etc.

. Use FileCourier - This is by farrepparttar 109573 easiest and most cost effective way to protect your email attachments, or replace FTP transmissions. It takes outrepparttar 109574 "idiot inrepparttar 109575 middle" with a very clever solution.

The FileCourier approach to Security ====================================

I believe that FileCourier isrepparttar 109576 easiest out-of-the box secure communication system available.

FileCourier approaches Internet data transfer security in a unique way. Until FileCourier was first released in December of 2002, all secure email and file transmission systems relied on encryptingrepparttar 109577 data duringrepparttar 109578 tried and true method of "upload, store, and forward". When you send an email, it and any documents attached to it are first transmitted to one or more intermediate servers. These mail server storerepparttar 109579 documents and then attempt to forward it torepparttar 109580 receivers email server. To securerepparttar 109581 transmission ofrepparttar 109582 email requires eitherrepparttar 109583 servers to use extra encryption software technology, or forcesrepparttar 109584 individual sender and receivers to install encryption software and their associated keys, or both. Not only is this a costly and time consuming exercise but it also often fails to protectrepparttar 109585 data overrepparttar 109586 complete path ofrepparttar 109587 transmission. What do you do ifrepparttar 109588 receiver is in another company and doesn't have any encryption software installed? What if his company is using a difference encryption standard? Ignoringrepparttar 109589 complexity of existing secure email and FTP systems their biggest failings continue to berepparttar 109590 "idiot inrepparttar 109591 middle". From a nosey email or FTP server administrator, to a hungry co-worker, to an incompetent who lets a hacker have free reign of their server, if your sensitive documents are stored on a server maintained by someone else then that person, or his company, can view your documents. The FileCourier approach is creative, yet simple. FileCourier utilizes existing email and instant messaging systems inrepparttar 109592 same way you use an envelope to send a letter thrurepparttar 109593 US postal service, as a wrapper forrepparttar 109594 real content. We assume that EVERYONE can read what is inrepparttar 109595 email, so we don't send your documents inrepparttar 109596 email at all. In fact your documents never leave your PC, untilrepparttar 109597 receiver ofrepparttar 109598 email requests it. How it works FileCourier lets you ticketrepparttar 109599 file you want to email, and then instead of sendingrepparttar 109600 file inrepparttar 109601 email, sends a "FileTicket" instead. The file is only transmitted torepparttar 109602 receiver ofrepparttar 109603 email when he opensrepparttar 109604 FileTicket and is "authenticated". Afterrepparttar 109605 receiver is authenticatedrepparttar 109606 file is transmitted through an SSL (secure socket layer) tunnel directly fromrepparttar 109607 sender's PC torepparttar 109608 receiver's PC through our secure relay servers. SSL isrepparttar 109609 same security used by banks and is impossible for packet sniffers to penetrate. With FileCourier each packet is encrypted using a 1024 bit key and is delivered to your receiver through his browser. FileCourier lets your communications go un-detected by any sniffer, and removesrepparttar 109610 "idiot inrepparttar 109611 middle" threat by never storingrepparttar 109612 data on an intermediate server. More over, FileCourier isrepparttar 109613 easiest way to secure your sensitive data transmission in both an Internet and corporate LAN environment.

Take Action Now! ================

Internet communications security is one ofrepparttar 109614 most important privacy issues we face today. It might feel a bit paranoid for a law-abiding citizen to encrypt his email communications and computer document transmissions, but would you send a customers contract thru normal mail without an envelope? How would you feel if your employer sent your next pay stub to you onrepparttar 109615 back of a postcard? Use FileCourier, just like you would use a envelope for regular mail.
