Mail Forwarding... Why would you do it?

Written by Steve

First of all when you think about tampering with mail such as remailing, forwarding etc. you think "dodgy" or is that legal? Quite simply yes, it is legal but it all depends on whatrepparttar intent ofrepparttar 139332 service is. I will explain why people need to have a fake mail address.

First of all we need to get some terms stated. I have been inrepparttar 139333 business for just over two years and there is still some confusion overrepparttar 139334 topic.

Mail forwarding: is a service that allows you to have your mail sent to a "mailbox" and then they will forward it off to your location. This mail is generally sent in bulk torepparttar 139335 recipient and is very useful if you travel, or don't have a permanent address.

Mail Redirection: is when you have mail sent direct to a mailbox and then it is "remailed" to another location. This is mainly used by organisations or individuals who wish to keep their physical address a secret.

Remailing: is as simple as receiving a letter, re-stamping and addressingrepparttar 139336 letter then posting it again. This is pretty much what happens when mail is forwarded or redirected.

Mail Drop: is defined as "an address or place at which a nonresident person receives mail, often of a secret nature" (2005)

So why are there so many names forrepparttar 139337 same services? It is pretty simple to understand why there are so many names and that is becauserepparttar 139338 vendors that offer these services are trying to obtain as many hits through search engines as possible, they use phrases such as "forwarding" "redirection" etc. In doing this they can confuserepparttar 139339 customer and they will not have a clear understanding ofrepparttar 139340 services that are available.

What service should I use then? Mail drops are generallyrepparttar 139341 most defined term and are understandablyrepparttar 139342 most common. I define Mail Drops as a mailbox that has been purchased on your behalf and all mail withinrepparttar 139343 mailbox is sent to your predefined recipient address. Most Vendors provide shared mail boxes, where you share a box with many users for a cheap price, or dedicated services where you actually rentrepparttar 139344 whole mailbox. You should look at how manageable your account is, can you have multiple predefined recipient addresses, and can you see what mail you have and how much mail you have inrepparttar 139345 box at any time.

How to choose VoIP service without losing your shirt

Written by Jason Stewart


Just mentioningrepparttar word to yourself either brings up images of walking in a new city whererepparttar 139146 grass is greener, or it brings up fear ofrepparttar 139147 unknown. Some will tread carefully aroundrepparttar 139148 subject, waiting to hear others opinions about a specific service and some may charge fearlessly into a service that they know little about. Which way isrepparttar 139149 right way to choose a VoIP service? I say neither.

Is there a safe way to choose a VoIP service? You bet there is, but it does take some work and careful research to make sure that you don't get stuck with something you cannot use or worse yet, be forced into a scenario in which your telephone communications is impaired.

There are 3 general steps to choosing Broadband Phone service. They are: 1.Qualify Yourself 2.Qualify a specific Provider, and 3.Researchrepparttar 139150 provider.

1.Qualify Yourself – Ask yourself “why do I want voip?” Is it because you want to save money? are you attracted to voip by all ofrepparttar 139151 features that it offers? Maybe you're sick of your local telephone company. Whateverrepparttar 139152 reason, make sure thatrepparttar 139153 benefits are better than what you're already getting now. For instance, you might want to save money on long distance with a voip provider but don't want to give up your old phone number. In this case you would have to ask yourself whether it would be acceptable to lose your old phone number to save a few extra dollars. These days, most providers (but not all) will allow you to keep your old phone number. Do you have a secondary means of communication such as a cell phone?

When your internet connection goes down, so does your voip line. That means that if a large storm knocks out power to your house, then your internet connection will also most likely be down. Another thing to consider when qualifying yourself for voip service is that 911 service is not as robust as a land line service would be. You may have to giverepparttar 139154 dispatcher your name and address. The good news is thatrepparttar 139155 larger providers are working withrepparttar 139156 dispatchers to provide 911 service that is just as robust as 911 on a land line.
