Business Email Systems Update
Dear QuickerWeb Business Email users,
Over the years we have watched as very large firms have stumbled with their services and many outages. We continue to see that happen, but QuickerWeb team has been proud of our datacenter and services.
Since 2007 when we started the service QuickerWeb has never had a major outage. Unfortunately, 9 December from 10:19 to around 1149AM we had an unexpected outage. We had the software company involved in the troubleshooting with our engineers to bring services back up. Although we’re investigating in detail it seems to be related to hard disks in our server raids.
We will do a maintenance tonight (Tokyo time) when the majority of people are offline. We will do this from 12AM JST (3PM GMT) to 7AM JST (10PM GMT). The systems will be inaccessible during this maintenance slot. As we are going to scan the hard drive offline to eliminate the error completely, it may take some time so we appreciate your patience.
Our team does IT work for the world’s biggest brands so we know our stuff and this type of outage is not like us. We are sincerely sorry for this inconvenience and will follow up with a summary once we’ve completely resolved the issue and we will eliminate potential recurrence. The systems you use are what we use as well.
Thank you so much for using QW over the years. We have provided great service for 7 years and we will continue to make sure you will be on the most reliable and up to date systems on the market.

How Do News Companies Make Money? Why You Should Know About Safe Web Browsing
The circulations of newspapers began to decline with the introduction of the internet, or shall we say with the ‘the maturing’ of the internet. People have just turned away from paying for news when they can get it online for free. Every major news organisation has the latest events online, as they have to, to be competitive with the other companies around.
Check out the full article here in AINEO Insights.
Does It Make Sense To Use Big Companies For Cloud eMail and Collaboration?
At QuickerWeb, we make a lot of time and effort to have the best connectivity, hardware, and most up to date software for our partner client websites and email. Our strength is our Business Email service based on Zimbra's Collaboration Server.
Everyone is rushing to the cloud but how good of an idea is putting your data on the cloud or servers of some big American company such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, and so forth? It is important to have your information on a cloud that is reliable and fast, but it's also nice to have it with a company that has a bit of tender loving care (TLC) for you when you are paying for it every month.
Last month, Microsoft messed up big time in June when they took thousands of companies off-line with their Office365 hosted Microsoft Exchange service. The service was down for 9 hours! You can read about it here.
How can any company stand for not being able to communicate with their clients for 9 hours? QuickerWeb is a few hundred thousand employees short of Microsoft, but we've never had any of our partners offline and unable to work for such a long time. We've had people reliant on us since 2007.
Don't gamble with you data. Go with the proven and reliable team at QuickerWeb.com and you'll get the TLC you deserve! Read more about our QW Biz Email here.
REMINDER- Business Email Upgrades This Weekend
Dear QuickerWeb.com Users,
This is the last reminder for QW Business email users before the major upgrades this weekend. Please remember you will likely not have access on 20 April from 12:01AM to 09:00AM Japan standard time. In the Zimbra desktop or web client, one change you will notice is the Documents tab will be removed and documents will be accessible under you Briefcase tab. Of course, all documents can be edited there as you previously did in the documents section. If you are using MS Outlook to access your email, you will notice no changes there.
We're very excited about getting you on the systems and thank you for growing with us!
Much more to come.
QuickerWeb.com Support Team.
Major Upgrades Coming To QuickerWeb.com’s Business Email
Dear QuickerWeb.com Partner,
In the coming weeks, we'll be doing some major upgrades to the QuickerWeb.com Business Email service. You are going to love the new functionality you have with the system. You'll have
-New Improved Ajax interface features such as drag and drop, shared tagging, social conversation view, auto-filtering of bulk and distribution list mail
-Expanded search capabilities with search results appearing in a separate tab
-Enterprise Calendar with scheduling suggestions for complex meetings, smart views for managing multiple calendars
Our favorite is the 'send later' feature when you write an email on Saturday and set it to go out on Monday AM when the person you want to see it is at their desk... not the bottom of their inbox. There is much more so we're stoked.
We have users in Europe, Africa, the US and all over Asia so the timing of the upgrade is challenging. We are working on the schedule but wanted to notify you that there may be time when you may not have access to your Business Email account during the process. We'll announce that to you when we're ready to proceed. Please bear with us as something better is coming but there is a lot of work going on in our datacenters.
Thank you for using QuickerWeb.com. We are glad you selected us.

Why does QuickerWeb.com Business Email Block Certain Attachments?
QuickerWeb.com Business email is designed to protect businesses and organizations from any type of security risk.
We recommend that every user install AV (antivirus) and malware protection on their computers. Email included in Green, Gold, and Platinum Plans has basic protection from viruses and other software threats installed. However, if you are serious about security, we highly recommend Business Email.
What type of files and email does QuickerWeb.com business email block?
1) Files that are zipped and password protected can hold a payload of malicious software or viruses. These files are blocked. Files that are password-protected are fine... doc, pdf, xls, whatever.
2) Files saved with the x in the extension such as xlsx pptx, or docx are exploitable. Ask people to send in MS Office 2004 format and your files will come sailing through.

Google’s Email Service No Longer Free To Professionals And Business
We never really understood why you would want to use a service that profiles you and your interests while you are working for someone else to sell on you. However, good has done it by giving away the service. It sounds like the party might be over.
Google has stopped offering its web-based office software, including Gmail, for free to small businesses as it aims to increase revenues outside its core web advertising business.
Service Us Like We’re QuickerWeb’s Only Customer
We built QuickerWeb.com because we were fed up with the plethora of unreliable hosting companies.

QuickerWeb.com Continues To Add People Looking For Hosted Exchange
Many companies have come from a Microsoft Exchange background. Headquarters of major companies around the world select Microsoft Exchange as their mail server of choice. The QuickerWeb.com headquarters of AINEO Networks is no exception.
For the AINEO group, supporting Microsoft products is a huge part of our business in three countries. In 2008, AINEO migrated it's Tokyo team to a new platform. It was more than just messaging and scheduling like we had experienced at our sites and at our partner sites. It was a whole new concept. Collaboration.
QuickerWeb.com started as a Microsoft Hosted Exchange environment. It was a huge investment on many $20,000 servers to build the most reliable network possible for small to medium enterprises. However, Exchange could not cut it. We learned very quickly it was unstable and actually concerning every time we updated something that something else would break. Even something simple like adding another company/domain.
Later that year we changed all our servers to a new concept in messaging, this collaboration. AINEO changed our MS Exchange clusters to Zimbra clusters. It was a bit over work transitioning all our hosted Exchange partners to Zimbra, but it was the best decision we made. It was very smooth.
The biggest change was the users could continue to use Outlook and PC based messaging, calendaring and tasks or they could move to this collaborative back end system that allowed them to
-Easily see a whole teams calendar in one shot
-Collaborate on a document
-Share files, share tasks, contacts, share anything and work on it together.
Switching from Hosted Exchange to hosted Zimbra was a decision that not only turned heads but allowed people to concentrate on their work and do it better. We are seeing a constant flow of people looking for something better than Exchange for
