Creating Strong Passwords

Today, many of our customers had difficulty accessing their
e-mail. As it turns out, one customer's e-mail account was hacked because their
password was "password". Some unscrupulous individual began using
that account to send unwanted advertisements (spam) to thousands of people,
which overloaded our mail server.

Please use discretion when creating
passwords. As a general rule, they should have a combination of capitol, lower
case, numbers and special characters. "PE$3nerg!ze" is a good example
of a complex password (but not one we use!). Using a phrase like, I Love PES Energize
Internet Service, to create "iLPES3i$!!!" is another way to make
complex and memorable passwords. In any case, "password",
"1234", "4321", etc. are not acceptable. Once your mail
account is accessed, hackers can use the password-reset function on Facebook,
your bank account, Amazon, Ebay, and have fun with your money and reputation,
so PLEASE! Choose a good password.
