Believe it or not, internet scams, viruses and hacking can impact your computer – and life – via email. These online threats are more than just annoying pop-up ads, people can use these email scams tap into your personal information.
So, how secure is your email server?
Here are some things we have noticed that contribute to a less-than-secure email server:
- It uses SMTP rather than encrypted messaging
- Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) can be accessed by outsiders because it inherently lacks security features
- Your mailbox consistently receives spam
- Your email may be linked to a cybercriminal if you are bombarded with potentially malicious emails. Clicking unknown links can put malware on your system
Email communications are tied into the fabric of our lives and businesses. It’s important to understand your security settings, application allowances and the access your email has to your computer. While it may not make an email server “safe”, at least you know what your settings were and can improve upon them if needed.
