Safety notes for mail accounts and passwords

Our support agents often get reports about hacked mail accounts from our
customers. This can be really annoying, since hacked mail accounts are
often used for sending spam and viruses.

EUserv's security team urgently recommends checking the passwords of all
your mail accounts in the customer panel.

Log in to the customer panel and check your mail accounts for secure
passwords. Passwords should at least be 8 characters long and contain at
least 2 lowercase letters, 2 uppercase letters and 2 digits.

Please use encrypted connections only when communicating from your mail
client (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird) with our mail servers (for fetching and
sending of mails). Our servers for incoming and outbound mail support
encrypted connections.
