Bigfoot Email Forwarding
One thing that sets an e-mail service apart from the rest
is versatility. An ordinary e-mail service is one that you
can use to just send, receive, and store e-mails. The not-so-ordinary
version is Bigfoot’s e-mail forwarding service that
lets you do more than the usual e-mail stuff. With Bigfoot,
not only can you send, receive, and store e-mails, you can
also forward, distribute, consolidate, and filter them.
You can set the Reminder feature to send you a message on
special occasions while the Auto-Responder automatically
sends a personalized reply to e-mails you received while
you’re away. If you have your own URL, the Permaweb
lets you redirect netizens to your web site.
August 31, 2003, Bigfoot will once again reinvent e-mail
as we know it. Aside from increased daily limits and enhanced
Forwarding has been integrated with WebMail,
Anti-spam and E-mail

to the most familiar e-mail concerns such as mailbox overload,
undelivered mails, spam, transmission of large files, and
connectivity to mobile devices. With the new E-mail Forwarding
subscriptions plans, e-mail management is more versatile
and less of a pain.

Question of the Month
IS DNS Management?
is generally considered an acronym for Domain
Name System, but it can also be used to
denote Domain Name Server.
computer has an Internet Protocol address
composed of several numbers, which they
use to communicate with one another. But
they also have domain names so they could
easily be remembered. For example, the machine
that humans refer to as www.bigfoot.com
has the IP address 188.8.131.52. What the
DNS does is, every time you use a domain
name, it translates that domain name into
the machine-readable IP address.
Management is a tool that allows you to
manage the DNS Records of your domain. You
can edit your DNS settings such as Name
Server records, IP records, Alias records,
MX records and SOA records. If you are a
Bigfoot Domain subscriber you can access
the DNS Management service for FREE!

Solution has been keeping track of developments
in the fight against spam. Here's an update
on the latest news.
Spam nowadays is not just a source of irritation.
It is fast becoming a tool for crime. More
and more fraudulent e-mails abound which
are designed to steal the identity of unsuspecting
Internet users. The steady increase in complaints
about these scams has prompted the U.S.
Senate and Congress to consider several
anti-spam bills to help solve the worsening
One such bill is the spam Act authored by
New York Senator Charles E. Schumer. He
proposes to create a Do-Not-spam list with
the names of people who do not want to receive
commercial e-mails. With the popularity
of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)'s
Do-Not-Call registry, many saw the creation
of this list as a way to stop the barrage
of unwanted e-mail advertising. But as it
gains public support, the bill faces more
hurdles in the legislative body as debates
on its merits continue.
Nevertheless, Bigfoot commends the efforts
of those who try to restore confidence in
e-mail use. Bigfoot believes that the more
people who support legitimate means of fighting
spam, the sooner this problem would be eradicated.

Call Manager, a downloadable windows application

from its unique features. For one, users
can now avail of the two-way calling special

the new “View My Screen” feature
that allows the participant/s to view the
