How to Report an Error

If you having a problem and are a registered user of VCN, please help us to identify you on our system by providing us your full name, your username (not the password), and phone number. Please provide a clear description, any error message(s), and the events leading to the problem. Also include what operating system (Windows XP, 2000, etc) you are using, as well as which email client (Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc). Our staff can only help if they can identify what kind of problem you’re having. The information you provide determines the next steps to be done and how we can fix it or help you to solve it. Consider what changes you have made before the error occurred. How often does the error occur? When does the issue occur? Have you encountered similar problems before

Example for Email Problems:

I recently switched from VCN dial up to a high-speed connection. I would like to continue using my VCN email, but when I try to send emails I get an error that the SMTP cannot be found. My Operating System is Windows XP, and I am using Outlook Express for my emails.

 

What is SPAM?

Spam: (from wikipedia) the abuse of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging spam, Internet forum spam, junk fax transmissions, and file sharing network spam.
