Account Information
Please note that when opening HTML based e-mail, the system will warn you that the message contains insecure items. This is because the e-mail tries to load parts from outside our server. If you click yes the connection will become insecure, if you click no the only thing that your message will not contain is image files, but the connection will stay secure.

E-mail Safety We are constantly exposed to a barrage of viruses, trojan horses, worms and other malicious code. The majority of this code arrives via electronic mail, as attachments. The authors of these programs rely on you to infect your own computer. The following rules for safe email practices will help you to thwart these attacks.

* If you receive email with an attachment from someone you do not know, delete the email without opening it. If it is from someone you do know but you were not expecting an attachment, check with the person to confirm that they sent you the attachment on purpose. NEVER EVER open an attachment unless you know exactly what it is, who sent it, and have verified that they sent actually it!

* If you receive an attachment, have verified that the sender is legitimate, do not automatically open it. Save the attachment to your hard drive and run an anti-virus scan of the file before you open it.

* Before you send a message with the attachment, ALWAYS send the recipient a message telling them you are about to send them an attachment. Describe what the attachment is and why you are sending it. Remember, viruses can do this too, so try and include something unique in this message so the recipient will know its from you and not some automated virus.

* Specifically scan any file you are going to include as an attachment in an email before you send it to someone else.

* Avoid sending messages with attachments that contain executable code (codes that run things), like Word documents with macros. You can use Rich Text Format, or RTF, instead of the standard .DOC format. RTF will keep your formatting, but won't include any macros. There is, however, a couple of viruses out there that will fool Word when you save as RTF, so while you cannot completely trust .RTF files it is still good practice. This may avoid the embarrassment of you sending them a virus if you are already infected.

Finally, if you have received an attachment and are not quite sure what to do with it or if you have additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the Catahoula Parish School District Help Desk at webmaster.@cpsbla.org
Thank you for your attention!
