Internet Nebraska Provides New Junk Email and Virus Protection from Postini
Internet Nebraska has partnered with Postini to provide you the latest tools to prevent viruses and junk email from reaching your computer.
For a $1 monthly fee* per email account, Internet Nebraska will set your
mail up to be filtered by Postini for both spam and viruses. We're very
excited to offer this safe, effective, user-configurable solution to
reducing the amount of undesirable mail you receive.
With this service, email that appears to be junk or virus-infected
is redirected to a password-protected online Message Center where
you can review and retrieve selected messages if you wish. You will
be able to set the level of restrictiveness, specify what kinds of
subject matter you want filtered, and specify senders who are always
or never filtered.
You can even "disinfect" mail that has been "quarantined" because it
appears to contain a virus, and then receive only the safe part of that
It is important to say that we at Internet Nebraska do not share
information about our customers with Postini or anyone else, except when
legally required by authorized law-enforcement officials. If you
subscribe to this service, Postini will never know anything about you, not
even your real name. Postini services are private and secure. The junk
email and virus protection is an automated process. Nobody will read your
mail. Your email is not censored. YOU control the settings.
Here is a brief overview of the Postini service:
- Your email passes through Postini's automated filters that detect
suspected junk email and viruses, based on your personal preferences.
For exmple, you can have mail leniently or aggressively blocked based on
subject matter, including "get-rich-quick" and "adult" themes.
- Suspicious email is directed to your personal, web-based,
password-protected Message Center (it does not arrive at your computer's
in-box). Think of this as a quarantine area. In your Message Center you
can read the quarantined email online, delete it, or deliver (forward) it
to your in-box.
- Initially you should visit your Message Center often because Postini
"remembers and learns" from your interaction with it.
- Postini lets you "block" senders; meaning, email from them will always be
filtered. Or you can "approve" senders; meaning, their email will always
- This service is completely controlled by you.
