A reminder about email to/from Sled Dog
If you're sending e-mail to Sled Dog Central, please read this...
Please be sure to include an appropriate Subject line in your messages to SDC.
E-mails with "Hi" and other non-descriptive subjects are assumed to be
junk mail or viruses. If there is nothing in the subject line, the mail will
automatically be deleted.
Any mail that appears the least bit suspicious--that is, without a subject line or with
a subject that doesn't specifically refer to SDC or a dog topic, without a return address,
unusually large size--is deleted without opening.
You can prevent accidental deletion of your message by including a relevant subject and
making sure the email includes your return address. If you have not received a response to
email within two or three days, consider re-sending with a more complete subject line.
If you receive a virus
infected or spam e-mail purporting to be from Sled Dog Central, please read this...
Most of the current viruses "spoof" the senders address. All that is
necessary for the mail to look like it came from Sled Dog Central is for the
infected computer to have our address in their email address book.
Nothing is impossible, but we run an AntiVirus 24/7 and our protection files
are updated immediately upon release. As an additional precaution
all of our outgoing email is scanned by our AntiVirus program before it is sent.
Thanks, Richard Hancock
