Viruses & ISPs

I’ve been receiving a lot of bounced email lately that I did not send. Almost all of these were rejected by servers because of attached viruses, sent randomly by viruses from other computers with my email addresses in their address books.

With at least a new virus a day, it is very important to update your virus definition file regularly. Also make sure your email server blocks viruses from getting to you. Find out from your ISP or network administrator and see if a virus scanner is installed on the server.

My hosting company (CrystalTech) updates their virus signatures frequently, and offers ColdFusion MX 6.1 (i.e. automatic support for things like CFC and Flash Remoting), ASP.NET, PHP, SQL Server, MySQL and many other features for developers. This is the only hosting company that I’m happy with (also heard the same from others), and they offer 24/7 toll-free telephone support. Tell them sent ya! 😎
