Pew Research Internet Project completed a  study  which shows researchers found roughly six out of every 10 American workers prefer e-mail as highly important following by internet to their workflow.

Email Still Key For Work Communication
The usual Email communication shows as vital for workers with less preferred landline phones, cellular phones and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook rounding out the list.

The report says, “(E)mail and the internet are particularly important to adults who work in traditionally “white collar,” office-based occupations such as professionals, executives, managers, business owners, and clerical workers. They are also critical for the 59 percent of employed online adults who take their jobs outside of the physical boundaries of the workplace at least occasionally.”

The statistics are a bit surprising as nowadays we have seen a havoc growth for social media but still Email continued to the best reliable mode of communication in workplace.

The study’s statistics can be reviewed to determine the cyber attack against Sony Pictures.

Recent hack of Sony is a perfect example of company security breaches, exposed months of employee emails. Hackers very often hacks confidential information about a company and its customers, such as credit-card numbers and email addresses.

How To Make Your Email Hack-proof

The basic way which is well practiced by hackers is by sending fake emails with malicious links to employee inboxes of a particular company.

Below are five simple steps that will make your email more secure and safe from hackers.

1. Label And Organize :

A lot of emails we receive from different email IDs everyday. You have to sort them into folders. This process will help you make your inbox more secure and the attacker has to know which folder to go to, or to take multiple steps to search for wanted information which is tough job indeed. Always remove any kind of sensitive information from your inbox.

2. Archive frequently :

A lot of corporate email systems allow people to set up regularly scheduled archiving so that emails are moved from the server after a certain number of days and can be saved to a archived file safe into your hard drive or USB storage media.

3. Keep Personal And Official Email Separate : 

Never use your company/official email for personal use. It will allow hackers to look into your company email account with several hacking tricks and resulting exploiting your company's system.

4. Never click on unknown attachments :

Delete the entire email or the attachment in case you receive an email with a link or attachment. You can confirm with the sender that the email sent to him was done by mistake or purposefully.  You can hover your mouse cursor over the hyperlink or right-click on any link from companies such as banking institutions, to see its linking site or activity.

5. Involve IT helpdesk :

Any received email containing a link or attachment strikes you as strange then immediately engage your IT department to look into the security threats.

Here are the highlights of Inbox :

Bundles: It will keep the promotional emails, emails regarding travel or purchase organized automatically. No need for manual labeling.

Yahoo Mail Users Affected By Hacking Attempt

Posted By: Arin Dey - February 01, 2014
Some hackers attempted to access a number of Yahoo accounts recently. Yahoo didn't reveal the number of accounts have been in attack by hackers but the company said that attempt has already prompted all affected users to reset their passwords.


Jay Rossiter, senior vice-president of Platforms and Personalization Products said in a blog post that “Based on our current findings, the list of usernames and passwords that were used to execute the attack was likely collected from a third-party database compromise. We have no evidence that they were obtained directly from Yahoo’s systems. Our ongoing investigation shows that malicious computer software used the list of usernames and passwords to access Yahoo Mail accounts. The information sought in the attack seems to be names and e-mail addresses from the affected accounts’ most recent sent e-mails.”

Jai Rossiter indicated  the following steps to protect users who are having Yahoo mail box:
  • They are resetting passwords on affected accounts.
  • Introducing second sign-in verification to allow users to re-secure their accounts.
  • Federal law enforcement has been involved to find and prosecute the perpetrators responsible for this attack.
  • Already taken additional measures to block attacks against Yahoo’s systems.
He recommended Yahoo Mail users to change their passwords regularly. Also he added that user should have passwords using variations of symbols and characters. It would be better not to use the same password on multiple sites or services.

He added that “Using the same password on multiple sites or services makes users particularly vulnerable to these types of attacks, they regret this has happened and want to assure our users that we take the security of their data very seriously.”

Free, Anonymous, Disposable Email Services

Posted By: Poketors - January 06, 2012
Have you ever imagined an email service without sign-up? Here is the service Mailinator which doen't require any sigh-up. Mailinator accepts email for any e-mail address within the mailinator.com domain, and allows anyone to read it. The best advantage here is you can avail this service without registering for an account or authenticate via a password. Overall it basically provides the users with an anonymous and temporary e-mail address which in result helps in reducing spam emails.

Email name you can think of already exists at Mailinator.com. Arriving email with a specific recipient name “creates” accounts at Mailinator. Hence it is not necessary to have an account or mailbox with the recipient’s name which needs to be created before. If you want JustForEmail@mailinator.com, you will get it.  Or else require WantToGo? DawnOnRoad? RivalOrFriend? No issues at all. Once you create it, its ready for use.


Main features of mailinator :

1. Use any inbox you like
2. No Sign-up is required
3. Inbox is created when email arrives for them
4. Make up email addresses on the fly
5. Make-up address, give it to others, come here and check inbox!
6. RSS/Atom feeds for every Inbox
7. Give out a Mailinator address any time you need an email address but don’t want to get spammed!

Here is the steps to check received mail :

1. A user goes to the Mailinator website and enters the recipient name. 
2. There are no passwords and there is no way to keep others from seeing the e-mail, except by choosing a very-hard-to-guess username (usernames can be up to 25 characters in length) or using the “cloaked” address for that username (as explained below). 
3. Therefore, Mailinator is not intended and should not be used for sensitive information. Users can delete e-mail upon reading it or allow the system to auto-delete it after a few hours. Mail cannot be sent from the Mailinator website.
4. Mailinator has introduced a “cloaking” feature in which every recipient name has a cloaked identifier starting with “M8R-” and a string of characters. Mail may be sent to either the original recipient name or the cloaked name. Mail will only go to the mailbox for the original recipient name, and the cloaked address will always have an empty mailbox. For example, the recipient name meall (“meall@mailinator.com”) will also have the cloaked address M8R-tcrfvc (“M8R-tcrfvc@mailinator.com”). Mail sent to the cloaked address M8R-tcrfvc will go to the destination mailbox meall, while the M8R-tcrfvc mailbox will always be empty. There is no way to translate the cloaked address into the destination address.
5. Emails may be viewed in unmodified “text view” mode. Mailboxes may also be accessed directly via the URL as in http://MailboxName.mailinator.com

Note : Mails sent to mailinator is automatically deleted after a few hours whether or not the user reads it.
