interfere with the use of specific protocols or ports. In the
interest of network security Ponderosa Internet does block all

protection. This virus protection cannot be removed. Each customer
email account is provisioned with a SPAM filter which the user can
control through an administration portal.

a customer may connect to the Ponderosa Internet network. If a
customer chooses to use their own Internet Gateway it must be compliant
with any transmission protocol currently in use in the network.
The customer is strongly advised to contact Ponderosa Internet to
determine which protocol is in use at your service location.
