Georgia Numbers 706-xxx-0514 Upgrade Schedule
Our numbers in area code 706 in Georgia ending in 0514 received a hardware upgrade by our local network provider on 6/9/04 but we are still getting some intermittent busies during peak hours. There is another bigger upgrade scheduled for 7/1/04 that will resolve the last of that issue. Thank you for your patience in that regard.
We are receiving a significant
number of calls regarding emails that went to our
customers concerning their email accounts. These e-mails
are not from us. This is a virus epidemic called The
Beagle Virus that started 3/3/04. We are not sending
these messages and you should delete any that get
through. All ISPs are getting hit with this. We are
adding filtering on our mail servers to stop them from
getting through. However, a bunch have already gotten
through as the virus was just discovered 3/3/04. Subject
lines will be: E-mail account disabling warning. E-mail
account security warning. Email account utilization
warning. Important notify about your e-mail account.
Notify about using the e-mail account. Notify about your
e-mail account utilization. Warning about your e-mail
account. It will appear to have been sent from one of
the following addresses: management@yourispname;
Please update your virus definitions today! In fact, we
recommend that you set your anti-virus software to
update virus definitions at least once per week if not
daily. There are always new viruses popping up and you
need to be prepared. Thanks.
We do not send virus reports. Do not open if you get one.
There is a mass e-mail going around that claims to be from your ISP. It says that your ISP has detected a virus and that you must click a link in order to stop the ISP from closing your account. DO NOT CLICK THE LINK. It is probably either a virus or a scam. Although we are not aware of any of our customers receiving the spoof at this time, a lot of ISPs are reporting this problem and it could happen to our customers too. Please keep in mind that we cannot stop these e-mails. They are coming from someone else. It is similar to trying to stop someone from putting your return address on regular postal mail and sending it out. On a related note, we strongly encourage all of our customers to install anti-virus software and then scan for viruses on a regular basis. Please update your virus definitions on a regular basis since new viruses get launched every day.
