Sending sensitive information by email can be dangerous. In the path from your inbox to the recipient’s, the email can be intercepted. If you’re sending the email from a public network or WiFi, it’s even more vulnerable.
The best way to keep sensitive information from being intercepted is to avoid sending it. But if you absolutely must send credit card information, passwords, bank account numbers, social security numbers, medical data or other private information, you should encrypt the email before you send it.
Here are two different tools you can use to encrypt your emails:
Man, have we got the tip of the week. Tnet Mail and Gmail offer many helpful attachment tools when you create an email. They’ll tell you when you’ve forgotten to add an attachment, allow you to uncheck individual attachments and inform you when your files are too large.
Another helpful tool that many don’t discover unless by accident is the drag to attach capability. Instead of browsing through your computer to attach a document, skip the “Attach a file” button and simply drag your file from your computer to your email as demonstrated in the diagram below. You can pull over multiple files at once to save even more time.
If you’re thinking about changing your email carrier, contact Tranquility today. We offer the features of Gmail with the support of Tranquility.

Now that you’ve chosen the perfect router, it’s time to configure your settings. One of the most important measures you should take when you set up your router is configuring your security settings.
Here are seven measures that you can take to protect your network from unwanted guests:
This should be your first step in setting up a new wireless router. The default administrative username and password that come with most routers are simple and well-known to hackers. To change these settings, refer to your owner’s manual on how to log in to the router’s administrative console, which is generally done through a web browser. Not sure if your new password is strong enough? Read this post on picking a crack-resistant password.
With the winter holidays quickly approaching, you may be asking yourself how you will support all of those new computer devices on your wish list. If you are looking for a wireless router for you or anyone else this holiday season, there are a couple questions you should ask yourself before making a router purchase.
If you only have a desktop. Don’t bother. Routers are used to direct data in a computer network, so multiple devices can connect to the Internet and communicate with each other. These devices include tablets, gaming consoles, computers, etc. If you just have a desktop computer, you can simply connect it directly to your DSL modem.
Email can get messy. But Tnet Mail clients can use aliases to keep their webmail accounts organized and centralize all incoming and outgoing mail. An email alias is a virtual address that redirects to your preexisting email account.
For example, if Jane Doe got married to John Newlywed and wanted to change her old address, email@example.com, to something including her new surname, she wouldn’t have to create a new account. She could simply set up an email alias, called firstname.lastname@example.org, for her old account.
In the workplace, email aliases can be used:
Each Tnet Mail user can set up 30 different email aliases. Before you go diving into your Tnet Mail account, though, look over the steps below. Setting up an alias requires the work of both your Tnet Mail administrator and you, the user.
If you followed the steps correctly, you should be ready to start sending and receiving mail with your new alias! You will still use the primary address to log in, receive calendar invitations, sync with your mobile device and share Google Docs and Sites, but can communicate with coworkers and clients using your alias.
