Improvements on Webmail service of Abcore Cadí

Improvements on Webmail service of Abcore Cadí

We have improved the web mail service of the Abcore Cadí platform in security and comfort in use. In addition to complying, as it did, with the SPF protocol against spam and the DKIM authentication mechanism, it now warns the user about messages that seem suspicious and provides information so that he or she can consider on whether or not to trust in received emails.

First, the concept of "suspicious" email, which is based on specific error patterns in SPF, DKIM and DMARC validation, has been introduced, but it does not trigger a policy failure. Messages that are considered suspicious are decorated with a warning in the preview and in the pop-up window of the message. If the "suspect" designation is due to a configuration problem with the sender but this sender is legitimate, users may choose to trust the sender and delete future notices.

Secondly, we have added a functionality to protect users from accidental activation of malicious content of messages in the spam folder. Thus, the basic content can be seen but the images, links and attachments are not accessible while the message is in the 'spam' folder. This forces users to drag the message out of the spam folder to interact with it. This reinforces the prevention attitude with the messages of the spam folder, which are potentially dangerous.

Finally, the way to show the discrepant information of the sender is also updated. A common sign of phishing/spoofing messages (impersonation in the computer environment) is when the Friendly From (the name that is seen as the sender of the message) does not match the address of the path of return (where the message came from). That's why we have added information in the "From" field that shows when the primary domains of these two referring addresses do not match. To simplify everything together we have also added a help bubble to explain what it means "sent from".

New filters to manage spam!

New filters to manage spam!

The Abcore Cadí platform will enable new technology to improve stability and efficacy in detecting junk mail.

The Internet Services Platform Abcore Cadí will have new filters in its rMail service (e-mail management) which will regulate the spam mail received by users. This new technology will be enabled over the following weeks, filtering junk mail and improving spam detection, resulting in more careful and consistent detection.

User won’t notice this change internally on their administrator, where they manage their webpage, mass mailing, and so on. But they’ll notice an improvement in receiving e-mails that were formally wrongly stored in their inbox, or in their spam folder.

The platform and user security will therefore be improved in this way. We hope the NGOs are able to notice the benefits of it in their e-mail managers.

E-mail marketing on Abcore Cadí will incorporate new technology!

E-mail marketing on Abcore Cadí will incorporate new technology!

From 15th October 2017, newsletters and the sending of mass mailings will operate with DKIM technology. This upgrade will not affect the user's experience on the Internet Service Platform. 

From 15th October, the e-mail marketing service of your NGO in Abcore Cadí, which includes newsletters and mass mailings, will go one step further. We are making significant improvements to this service through iWith.org, where we will be introducing DKIM technology. And what is DKIM technology? It is an e-mail authentication technology which enables the validation of emails by the receiver through a digital signature. SPAM originating from illegal servers would be reduced to zero if all the e-mail servers used DKIM authentication technology.

The Abcore Cadí Internet Service Platform was so far functioning with SPF (Sender Policy Framework) systems, and DKIM technology will now be added to it. This change will introduce its trial version starting from 1st October 2017, and will be fully available for all of the organisations, associations and NGOs that use the Abcore e-mail marketing service from the 15th of October.

We answer some of your doubts below:


I have understood, but… will my system be affected?

NO! The Abcore administrators will find that it is the same system, open and without major changes.
 

Will I need to do something during this period?

We recommend that, at least during the initial 15 days of the trial version, you contact soporte@iwith.org before clicking on "send", so we can monitor the process and complete the dispatch.
 

Is there a charge for this upgrade?

NO! The upgrade with DKIM technology does not have any additional costs.
