Written by Dawn Gray

Continued from page 1

Unfortunately, people are becoming wary of giving out their email addresses. They get too much email as it is. Your offer must be compelling to convince them to hand over contact information. Even then, don't expectrepparttar email addresses to pour in unless you already receive a lot of traffic.

"Isn't There An Easier Way?"

I knew you'd ask that. There is another way to send information about your website via email, but you might not be able to get an exclusive ad. You can pay a small amount of money (some are even free!) for an advertisement in a newsletter, like this one. More people read newsletters than stand-alone commercial advertisements, since they generally have useful information. The list is built for you, and you can find one for almost any target audience imaginable.

There are numerous directories of ezines, many of which include information about advertising in email newsletters. My list is located nearrepparttar 109601 bottom of Also, considerrepparttar 109602 newsletters you already subscribe to. Chances are, many are related to your website's topic and are targeted atrepparttar 109603 same audience. Just scroll torepparttar 109604 bottom for information on advertising opportunities or contactrepparttar 109605 editor about it.

(For advertising information for this newsletter, send a blank email to )

There are many types of newsletter advertising, from stand-alone ads which are sent independently ofrepparttar 109606 newsletter to one or two line "classifieds" crowded together atrepparttar 109607 end. Make sure you know what your options are and what you're getting by subscribing torepparttar 109608 newsletter in advance. The things to look for are quality content and little competition (you don't want to be on page 3 of a 5 page advertising section).

1.Both OE and MSO are very similar to their mail receiving and filing function. 2.Both OE and MSO do offer backgrounds through "new mail using…" menu. 3.Preview pane could be kept shut when inbox is opened in both OE and MSO 4.Configuring accounts is very similar. 5.Both programs can disable automatic download of emails. 6.Both can have multiple accounts inrepparttar same user or identity.

OE is better for: 1.Multiple users usingrepparttar 109600 same computer. 2.For news from newsgroups on news server.

MSO is better for: 1.Large volume of emails to be saved in text format for easy accessibility. 2.For sending emails in MS OFFICE formats.

Tips for configuring both OE and MSO to block viruses 1.Switch offrepparttar 109601 preview panel inrepparttar 109602 INBOX. This prevents any virus getting into your system by automatic opening. 2.Switch offrepparttar 109603 "include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing" for every account you have. You can do this by disabling (no tick mark) on this feature, which you will find by menu chain: Tools, Accounts, account-name, properties, General. This will ensure thatrepparttar 109604 mail is not flowing-in automatically. 3.Before downloading mail, accessrepparttar 109605 mail onrepparttar 109606 net. Most of these webmail sites showrepparttar 109607 size ofrepparttar 109608 files, which unfortunately is not a feature with either OE or MSO. Any mail over 100KB is suspect should be deleted. Also delete any junk mail. Only download and receive mail that you want to save on your computer. 4.To download and receive mail, don't click on Send/Receive onrepparttar 109609 mail Tool Bar, but go into Tools, and moverepparttar 109610 curser on "Send/Receive" and move right to get a sub-menu where you selectrepparttar 109611 precise account, with which you want to send or receive. 5.Send by clicking onrepparttar 109612 small arrow next to "Send", and selectingrepparttar 109613 precise account by which to send. The mail will wait inrepparttar 109614 Outbox till you send throughrepparttar 109615 Tools, Send/Receive menu as given in 3 above.
