Virus Filters



The Quad-Cities OnlineŽ technical department has a upgraded our mail server to have a very nice filter in place to help prevent the spreading of viruses with common subjects and common senders. This new filter is another added bonus to being a Quad-Cities OnlineŽ Customer and is free for anyone with a qconline address.

If you try to send out (or someone tries to send to you) a message that has a subject that is the same as a common virus subject line, you or that person writing you will receive a 554 filter error. If you receive this error, you will want to change the subject of your message, so that the message will get past the filters. If you change the subject and it doesn't help, or you have sent nothing and are getting this error, you may have a virus on your machine that is trying to reproduce itself at your machine's expense. You should then check your machine to verify it does not have a virus already.

If you attempt to send an E-mail which contains a known virus to someone or someone sends one to you, then you will receive an E-mail notice from anti-virus@mail.qconline.com letting you know. This message will let you know who is sending the virus (if it is you or someone to you). It will also let you know which virus is being sent. Along with this message, you will receive an attachment to this message from our system letting you know what the original message said.

This filter is set up as a first line of defense, but in no way should it be your only line of defense. It will only filter known viruses, and will not be able to catch the latest and greatest viruses as soon as they come out. Viruses can get into your machine via chat programs, floppy disks, and websites as well. To protect yourself better, take action.

1) Make sure you have good anti-virus software.
2) Make sure you are using it.
3) Make sure you have the current update.
4) Don't even consider opening any unknown files until you have done those first three things.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.

1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
