Grand Opening Of The New AIR-PIPE & WOW Valley Office

AIR-PIPE & Wired or Wireless, Inc. provided a warm welcome to their vendors, customers and friends at the Grand Opening of their new facility in the Spokane Valley.

WOW Grand Opening Event & Ribbon Cutting

Music, appetizers, refreshments, and prizes were enjoyed while guests toured the company's new office building, shop, and fleet of vehicles. Guests were able to meet the Team and learn about the many local services the company provides.

"We enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many of our clients, customers and vendors and express our gratitude for their business", states Bill Geibel Jr., President and Owner of AIR-PIPE and Wired or Wireless, Inc., "Moving to this new location was a perfect fit for the growing needs of this company."

Technical Tip: Reduce/Prevent SPAM

Many people enjoy sending fun emails that ask you to "forward to 10 of your friends", "sign this petition", "if you don't you'll get bad luck", or "if you do you'll get good luck", etc.. More often then not, these types of emails have tracking cookies anxiously waiting to snatch up your email address as well as every person you CC'd the email to. Once the email has been forwarded the attached cookies mark the addresses as active, and add them to a list for future SPAMMING. Yuck!

To prevent yours and other's email addresses from being added to the dreaded SPAM lists make sure to use the 'BCC' function instead of 'To' or 'CC' when forwarding these types of emails. This simple adjustment will greatly reduce junk emails received making the email experience a much happier one.

Check back in future AIR-PIPE newsletters for additional TECH TIPS to prevent and reduce SPAM emailing and receive many other helpful suggestions.

New Email Security System - Red Condor

AIR-PIPE recently implemented a new high-security system into the email services provided to AIR-PIPE Internet subscribers through a hardware and hosted SPAM filtering service called Red Condor. As it is greatly important to AIR-PIPE to continually provide the highest quality services we can, by adding this new email security feature AIR-PIPE has drastically reducing SPAM emails which in turn improves the overall Internet experience.

The Red Condor service was initially setup with a trial period to ensure it was the best direction to go in support of quality AIR-PIPE email services. During that time a request for feedback was sent out to AIR-PIPE users. Shortly after a successful trial period, Red Condor was implemented due to the numerous positive feedback responses received from satisfied customers using the AIR-PIPE email services.

Here are just a few of the responses received...

  • "I just wanted to say thanks for the new spam blocker, it appears to be working excellent!!! Thanks for caring about your customers." Jeff I

  • "The new spam filter is one of the best things that your company could do, THANK YOU!" Leta K

  • "Thank you for implementing Red Condor. It has reduced the inbox spam to zero for us." Mike J
