Email Tutorial

  • What is mail policy and email limits?

    What is mail policy and email limits?


    Mail Limits

    There is an maximum amount of emails which can be send out per hour is 30 emails from one account or 100 emails per domain and 300 emails per day, this limit is also applied "Web Hosting Service", "Towards Mailing Lists" and "Online E-Store System". Focus Network Company reserves the violation of any of the foregoing may result in immediate deactivate or termination upon any indication of such activity without notice.

    Many of our servers have a 60 pop checks per hour limit per email address.? If you go over this you're likely to get a wrong password error message saying login incorrect. Just wait an hour and it will automatically unlock you. to prevent this from happening again make sure to disable auto checking or at least set it to something higher such as 10 minutes.

    Any mailing list larger than 2000 will require a dedicated server solution from us. Note: dividing one large list into smaller lists to get below this limit is not allowed.

    We have a maximum size of emails of 50 MByte and under, any email over 50 MByte will be automatically rejected, please use your FTP to transfer big files!

    Mailing Lists Rules

    1. Anytime you're sending a message no matter how large your e-mail list is you must throttle it.? We recommend you throttle it to at the very least sending 1 email every 6 seconds. If the mailing list software you're using does not allow you to throttle you must switch to something else. We recommend Mailman which can be found in your control panel under PLESK. If you do not throttle and you try sending let's say 1500 emails the server will try sending all 1500 in 1 second which is not possible. This will cause the server load to go very high and for the entire server to be sluggish until this process is completed. It is our job to keep the server up and running without being sluggish. Anyone who causes the servers load to go high will be suspended and the process will be terminated. If you choose not to throttle you will most likely be suspended for crashing the server without notice.

    2. Any mailing list over 100 emails is only allowed to be sent to during off-peak times to prevent high server loads. Off peak times qualify as all day Saturday and Sunday, and 1am - 8 am eastern time M-F.

    3. You are not allowed to mail to a mailing list you were given or purchased. This is spamming because they never agreed to you personally sending them mail. We do not care and how you justify it this is spam and will result in termination of the offending account.

    4. Any unsolicited e-mail being sent will result in termination of the offending account without notice. We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail.

  • Setup fetch email using Yahoo! Mail

    Setup fetch email using Yahoo! Mail


    Why Should I Use Fetch Mail Instead of an Email Forwarder?

    We are committed to improving the stability of services.

    Unfortunately, it is very common for mail forwarding to cause blacklisting with many large email providers. This most commonly occurs when large amounts of mail are forwarded and then marked as spam after it has been received in the end user's inbox. This results in our server's sending reputation being penalized since it was the last server to send the mail. Ultimately, our server will be blacklisted with the email provider and it will affect all of other users on the same server.

    A solution to this is to disabled mail forwarding altogether. change to using mail fetcher, you can access mail in a other system without having the mail routed through that system's server. This way, you can mark a message as spam without it affecting our email server's reputation.

    The following articles explain how to set up mail fetching for other services and are for reference only.

  • Attribute Configuration

    Attribute Configuration


    “商品特性”能允許您在某一項產品上,預先設定可供顧客在訂購時選擇更合適的產品細節,而且有效減少收到訂單後的種種跟進工作。

    例如您正在售賣的西褲,應該具備不同的“顏色”、“腰圍”、“褲長”等,以供顧客選購,而透過“商品特性”的預先設定,您便可自定產品選擇上的各種“選項名稱”和“選項值”。

    當完成設定所有的“商品特性”後,您便可參考及使用下一節指南介紹的“商品特性管理”,逐一為指定的產品套用合適的“商品特性”。

    為有效管理“商品特性”及避免日常汲及的產品管理及訂購單出現混亂,強烈建議在開始設定“商品特性”前,細心採集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構。

    這些“商品特性”建議於未進行“產品新增”及“匯出、匯入資料”前的初始設定時一併處理,而由於某一特性將來會被套用到產品售出後的訂單資料,所以商品特性一經輸入和套用,不應刪除以避免無法正確查閱訂單資料。

    進入“商品特性設定”管理:
    • 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    • 點擊左選單的“商品特性設定”

    每項“商品特性”包含的資料:
    • 商品選項
      特性的“中英文”名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“顏色”、“尺碼”、“褲長”(必需輸入)

    • 選項值
      • 選項名稱
        已建立的選項所屬特性名稱

      • 選項值
        “中英文”的選項值名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“紅色”、“大碼”、“42吋”(必需輸入)


    針對“商品特性”的動作:
    • 增加
      新增一項“商品選項”或“選項值”,在新增“選項值”前應預先完成新增“商品選項”

    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的“商品選項”或“選項值”,例如更改名稱

    • 刪除
      將該“商品選項”或“選項值”刪除,此刪除動作只針對“商品選項”或“選項值”資料,不會把原有產品刪除

    注意事項:
    • 名稱相近的特性或選項值請盡量歸納,避免設定過於沉長和混亂的架構

    • 設定前務必預先集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構

    • 不可在“商品選項”或“選項值”的名稱內包含或使用符號,以避免跳脫字元影響資料庫存取

    Low Stock Report


    我們的“網上商店”系統提供專業的“報表及統計”功能,讓您能隨時檢視“即時”及“過往”的業績記錄,令掌握營運更輕鬆。

    每項報表皆具備多種不同的樣式,而且除了能線上檢視外,更可透過您的印表機,將業務數據列印以備參考。

    “存貸不足報表”能讓您掌握某些產品存量不足,以便進行補貨或停止顯示產品。

    進入“存貸不足報表”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“報表及統計”

    2. 點擊左選單的“存貸不足報表”

    每項“存貸不足報表”包含的資料:
    • 圖片

    • 產品名稱

    • 售價

    • 銷售數量

    • 現有數量

    針對“存貸不足報表”的動作:
    • 列印
      將當前資料透過印表機列印

    注意事項:
    • 請定期檢視所有報表及統計數據,方能掌握業務進展及變化

    • 所有報表數據屬您的商業機密,切勿隨意向第三者披露

    • 若有使用其他第三方供應商,例如“收款閘道”,基放計算方式、環境因素等,二者的報表數據結果可能並不一致

    • 報表資料屬即時狀態,而過往記錄有可能受其他因素影響,例如管理員對訂單的刪除等,所以資料將與實際稍有差別

    • 報表數據只供參考

    業務管理架構


    在貴公司採用我們的系統過程裏,除了初次完善的設定後,往後的管理可能會十分繁重,由於在互聯網上潛在著巨大商機和不分國別界限,所以因由開業初期的零碎訂單及客戶查詢,以至貴公司網站及業務續漸被更多人認識,這時會出現大量的客戶查詢及訂單,所以貴公司必須及早作好安排,提高業務效率。

    因為每間公司的業務均不盡相同,我們實難以一一說明,但以下是一些根據現時我們的客戶提供及經整理的重點安排:
    • 新產品的輸入工作

    • 售清產品的刪除或補貨工作(系統對於存量會有提示)

    • 產品的售價、存量、內容的更新

    • 經常校對輸入了的資料並試驗實際模擬交易,找出錯誤的地方並加以修正

    • 整個網站內容訊息定時更新,會讓顧客保持新鮮感

    • 定期觀察我們提供的網站報告,比較瀏覽量高低的地區作出相應的宣傳安排

    • 如網上營商是貴公司的重點業務,需多利用各動宣傳媒體,例如於“Yahoo”、“Google”放置廣告,把產品張貼到知名的拍賣網如“EBay.com”、“雅虎拍賣網”等

    “新會員優待”包含的資料:

  • Purchase Order

    Purchase Order


    “訂單管理”是整套網上業務的核心之一,為了能讓日常的管理更有效率,請您細心閱讀這份指南。

    當會員從“網上商店”挑選了有興趣的產品,並把產品放入“購物車”後,便可進行結帳,在顧客完成幾個步驟後,包括“選擇貨運方式”、“選擇付款方式”、以及最後確認無誤後,按下“確認”並完成訂購程序,系統便會把訂購資料記錄,並且向顧客及管理員發出訂購確認通知。

    這時管理員便需要盡快處理,以便讓顧客能知悉訂單狀態。一般情況下,我們建議管理員每天最少檢查和處理一次“訂單記錄”,日常亦需關注一些未完成的訂單。

    進入“購物訂單”管理:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訂單處理/客戶管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“購物訂單”

    3. 選擇相關訂單

    訂單型式:
    • 已記錄的訂單
      完成所有訂購流程的訂單

    • 待完成的訂單
      未完成訂購流程的訂單,主要是線上付款未交易成功,管理員可根據需要手動確認

    針對購物訂單的“浮動按鈕”:
    • 處理訂單
      針對更新訂單的每一個處理狀態,讓系統記錄,並選擇是否透過“電子郵件”和“手機短訊”通知顧客。

      • 更新狀態
        選擇一項適合的狀態名稱

      • 備註
        若有需要,可輸入有關該項訂單的備注,亦可選擇是否向顧客通知

      • 積分
        檢視該項訂單顧客可獲得的“現金積分”,可選擇是否批核這些積分給顧客

      • 產品寄出日期
        若有寄出的日期,可點擊“日曆”按鈕選擇日期

      • 產品送貨日期
        若有送貨的日期,可點擊“日曆”按鈕選擇日期

      • 貨運參考編號
        若有貨運編號,例如“郵政編號”、“速遞編號”、“掛號通知”

      • 電郵通知訂單更新
        選取後系統會透過電腦通知顧客

      • 短訊通知訂單更新
        選取後系統會透過手機短訊通知顧客

      • 郵件語言
        請選擇適合顧客的語言,例如知悉顧客是歐美地區,則選擇“英文”

      • 保留郵件副本
        若選擇了電郵通知,可將更新電郵副本保留,供日後需要時參考

    • 訂單資料
      管理員可檢視這項訂的所有資料。

      • 訂購產品資料
        訂單的訂購產品資料、售價、小計、運費、優惠金額、應收總計

        根據顧客要求的帳單資料

    • 狀態記錄
      由“下”至“上”的訂單狀態處程過程記錄。

      • 新增日期
        記錄狀態的日期

      • 郵件通知客戶
        有否透過電郵通知顧客

      • 短訊通知客戶

    • 列印 - 列印這項訂單的收據

    新進訂單通知方式:
    • 顧客
      “電子郵件”

    • 管理員
      “電子郵件”、“手機短訊”、“傳真文件”

    更新訂單狀態通知:
    • 顧客
      “電子郵件”、“手機短訊”

    針對訂單的動作:
    • 編輯
      更新訂單的狀態、產品貨運資料、向顧客發出通知

    • 刪除
      刪除“錯誤”、“過久未完全”、“重複的訂單”

    • 資訊
      檢視訂單的資料

    注意事項:
    • 系統被記錄的訂單並不表示成功收取貨款,如果您的訂單是透過付款閘道收款,請登入付款閘道供應商的帳戶,並確認款項收妥方可處理產品的付運

    • 請細心核對每項訂單的資料,包括顧客資料、要求的貨運地點、帳單資料等,若有需要,請跟顧客聯絡以確認資料無誤,並且在產品付運前確保已收妥貨款

    • 建議在接到新訂單後,若資料無誤,保留二十四小時後才處理付運,因中途若出現問題也有機會處理

    • 如訂單透過線上付款閘道收款,請比對客戶的IP國家與訂購者國家是否一致,或利用付款閘道供應商的工具檢視國家地區資料,若有懷疑,請參考付款閘道供應商的指引向顧客索取身份証明的文件,以減少網上詐騙帶來的損失

    • 在一般情況下,“待完成的訂單”是顧客在結帳時系統預先記錄該訂單資料,若順利完成線上付款交易,將自動轉為“已記錄的訂單”,但若顧客沒有完成線上付款或過程中出現問題,則訂單型式仍處於“待完成的訂單”,如檢查線上付款無誤,管理員應手動進行確認

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.

  • Twitter

    Twitter


    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

    Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet", as it provides the functionality—via its application programming interface (API)—for other desktop and web-based applications to send and receive short text messages, often obscuring the Twitter service itself.

  • FrontPage

    FrontPage


    Microsoft FrontPage (later full name Microsoft Office FrontPage) was a WYSIWYG HTML editor and web site administration tool from Microsoft for the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems. It was part of Microsoft Office application suite from 1997 to 2006. A Macintosh version was also released in 1998. Microsoft FrontPage has since been replaced by Microsoft Expression Web, which was released in December 2006.

    One of the notable features of FrontPage is its built-in support for automated web templates. The main distinction between these templates and HTML templates generated by other products is that FrontPage templates include an automatic navigation system that creates animated buttons for pages that have been added by the user. It also creates a multi-level navigation system on the fly using the buttons and the structure of the web site.

  • PNG (Portable Network Graphics)

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics)


    PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve and replace the GIF format, as an image-file format not requiring a patent license.

    PNG is pronounced "ping" , but can be spoken "P-N-G" to avoid confusion with network tool ping. PNG is supported by the libpng reference library (platform-independent), with C functions for handling PNG images.

  • TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)

    TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)


    Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for mainly storing images, including photographs and line art. Originally created by the company Aldus, jointly with Microsoft, for use with PostScript printing, TIFF is a popular format for high color depth images, along with JPEG and PNG.

    TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications such as Photoshop by Adobe, GIMP, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Photo-Paint as well as Paint Shop Pro by Corel, by desktop publishing and page layout applications, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition, and other applications.

    TIFF was chosen as the native format for raster graphics in the NeXTstep operating system, and this TIFF support carried over into Mac OS X. Adobe Systems, which acquired the PageMaker publishing program from Aldus, now controls the TIFF specification, although it has not had a major update since 1992 (several technical notes have been published with minor extensions to the format).

  • JPG (File Interchange Format)

    JPG (File Interchange Format)


    JPEG is a commonly used standard method of compression for photographic images. The name JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the name of the committee who created the standard. The group was organized in 1986, issuing a standard in 1992 which was approved in 1994 as ISO 10918-1. JPEG should not be confused with MPEG, the Moving Picture Experts Group, which produces compression schemes for motion pictures.

    JPEG provides for lossy compression of images (although there are variations on the standard baseline JPEG which are lossless). The file format which employs this compression is commonly also called JPEG; the most common file extension for this format is .jpg, though .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif and .jif are also used.

    JPEG itself specifies both the codec defining how an image is transformed into a stream of bytes, and the file format used to contain that stream. The file format is known as 'JPEG Interchange Format' (Often confused with the JPEG File Interchange Format), and is specified in Annex B of the standard. It is possible for JPEG data to be embedded in other file types, such as TIFF format images.

    JPEG/JFIF is the format most used for storing and transmitting photographs on the World Wide Web. For this application, it is preferred to formats such as GIF, which has a limit of 256 distinct colors that is insufficient for color photographs, and PNG, which produces much larger image files for this type of image. The compression algorithm is not as well suited for line drawings and other textual or iconic graphics, and thus the PNG and GIF formats are preferred for these types of images.

    The MIME media type for JPEG is image/jpeg (defined in RFC 1341).

  • Cookie

    Cookie


    The term Cookie derives from "magic cookie", a packet of data a program receives but only uses for sending it again, possibly to its origin, unchanged. Magic cookies were already used in computing when Lou Montulli had the idea of using them in Web communications in Mar 1993.

    Purpose
    HTTP cookies are used by Web servers to differentiate users and to maintain data related to the user during navigation, possibly across multiple visits. HTTP cookies were introduced to provide a way for realizing a "shopping cart" (or "shopping basket"), a virtual device into which the user can "place" items to purchase, so that users can navigate a site where items are shown, adding or removing items from the shopping basket at any time.

    Allowing users to log in to a website is another use of cookies. Users typically log in by inserting their credentials into a login page; cookies allow the server to know that the user is already authenticated, and therefore is allowed to access services or perform operations that are restricted to logged-in users.

    Many websites also use cookies for personalization based on users' preferences. Sites that require authentication often use this feature, although it is also present on sites not requiring authentication. Personalization includes presentation and functionality. For example, the Wikipedia Web site allows authenticated users to choose the webpage skin they like best; the Google search engine allows users (even non-registered ones) to decide how many search results per page they want to see.

    Cookies are also used to track users across a website. Third-party cookies and Web bugs, explained below, also allow for tracking across multiple sites. Tracking within a site is typically done with the aim of producing usage statistics, while tracking across sites is typically used by advertising companies to produce anonymous user profiles, which are then used to target advertising (deciding which advertising image to show) based on the user profile.

    Browser Setting
    Described in " How to Enable Cookie " section.

    Cookie Expiration
    Persistent cookies have been criticized by privacy experts for not being set to expire soon enough, and thereby allowing some websites to track users and build up a profile of them over time. This aspect of cookies also compounds the issue of session hijacking, because a stolen persistent cookie can potentially be used to impersonate a user for a considerable period of time.

    Identification
    If more than one browser is used on a computer, each usually has a separate storage area for cookies. Hence cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a user account, a computer, and a Web browser. Thus, anyone who uses multiple accounts, computers, or browsers has multiple sets of cookies.

    Likewise, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users who share a computer and browser, if they do not use different user accounts.

  • How To Fix DNS Cache Issues

    How To Fix DNS Cache Issues


    If your website is not coming up, is showing a Plesk Default Page, or if your email is not working, it may be due to the fact that our web servers have recently changed IP Addresses.

    Personal Computers will often store IP Address information for 24-48 hours so if you are not able to access your website or email it may be because your computer is trying to find the servers at their old addresses.

    Here's what you need to do (Windows):
    1. Close all Internet Explorer Browsers or other Browsers you may have open.
    2. Close all email applications such as Outlook or Outlook Express.
    3. Click The Start Menu.
    4. Choose Run.
    5. Type "command" and hit Enter (a DOS prompt will open).
    6. In the new DOS prompt, type the following commands:

      ipconfig /flushdns
      nbtstat -R

    Once these commands are run, close the DOS prompt and wait 5 minutes, then try to access your website or email again.
