Why You Should Digitally Lock Your Vital Documents

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 14:34
PS: this is a guest contribution from Rafe Zetasci
I have since forgotten about this article until today when I was going through my many guest posts articles received and kept on my document library. I decided to pick this one cause I feel the need for everyone to be secured.
As organizations are striving to connect with their valuable partners, employees, customers and clients, it is becoming increasingly difficult to safeguard against digital security violations. In order to protect classified information against unauthorized access and violations, enterprises are opting for digital rights management fundamentals as an important factor in locking down digital security.

Some of the obvious document security choices include opting for a well-known DRM system, safeguarding critical documents with passwords, communicating data securely through a private SSL and clean wiping employee devices if misplaced or lost.

If every enterprise recognizes these choices as well as other essential DRM practices, why do we still hear of massive document security violations taking place in leading organizations? Some of the headline grabbing stories in the last few years have been focused on organizational data infarcts and the accompanying plummeting of brand legitimacy and value.
To help man-oeuvre the world of DRM choices, here are

two critical tips that can help in digitally locking vital documents.

digitally locked document
1.]    Ensure the safety of digital data from the onset of its journey.

Lets take a close look at this. An associate carries his iPad to a number of locations, particularly to customer venues at the commencement of a client information-procuring procedure. The associate takes on specific information from various customers electronically.

However, during lunch the iPad gets stolen or lost with all the classified customer information that was captured during the day, including classified phone numbers, payment information, Social Security numbers, emails and addresses.

Irrespective of whether the iPad gets lost or stolen, all of the sensitive data that was encapsulated during the day now stands at risk of being exposed to unscrupulous parties.

Because the breach has taken place, the current set of customers may not be the only ones to think twice about conducting business with you but rather future clients might also learn about the digital breach through a public report when examining vendors, which will compel them to disregard your services and employ your competitor.

Hence, it is extremely vital that information capture processes are securely protected and safeguarded. When examining customer information capture solutions, it is important to consider digital rights management. Although it might not be headline news on the loss of the iPad and the data contained in it, the next point is worth considering.

2.] It's not about the size of the loss, rather the relevance of what has been lost.

In a number of industries, especially finance related, the sensitive nature of data and compliance does not require second thought on putting digital locks on classified information and documents.

Now, what most companies fail to understand is that data into wrong hands itself could be hazardous, and even a tiny breach could greatly hamper customers confidence. Organizations that exclusively take care of identifiable information of any nature must take adequate measures to safeguard digital information and data.

It is important to understand every step of a process in order to ensure that accurate DRM functionality is employed. Beyond customer information, the leakage of a single piece of information can still be calamitous.

Irrespective of whether a highly protected piece of information is printed and taken out of secure premises, or classified intellectual property that is surreptitiously emailed to a malicious party in a commercial environment, the underlying consequences and the ensuing compliance infringement and legal battles become unendurable threats.

DRM solutions are perfect for leading brands across the financial industry, medical, insurance, advertising, government and various others to help them accomplish digital transformation by securing their classified data and build market share.

How To Transfer WhatsApp Messages From an Old Phone to a New One

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 06:28
Of a true, Whatsapp is one of those App that is a tremendously useful way to keep in touch with people all over the world, and yes, it’s pretty much for free. There is a rather large problem that users can encounter though, and that is when moving on to a new phone.

Usually, their conversations don’t come with them. This is due to the way that the app stores content. It stores its content locally on your local SD card or phone memory, rather than on web servers.

If you still have your old phone to hand, and haven’t switched from Android to iOS or vice versa, then it’s still possible to salvage those chats and move them safely to a new home.  As, I will be taking you through the short process of copying and restoring your digital missives.

How to Add Your old Whatsapp Message to a New Handset in just two processes

transfer old whatsapp to new one


Using an SD card

If you have an Android phone with an SD card which is most likely to be the case, then the process for transferring your chat history is in all way straightforward.

Heres what you do, Open the app, then tap the Menu icon, now go to Settings > Chats and calls > Backup Chats.

This will now create a backup on your SD card, which you can then swap into your new handset. Reinstall WhatsApp on you’re the new device you have used to replace the old one (with the SD card inserted) and the app should spot your backup and automatically restore the chat history.

Using a PC

This is basically for those phones without an SD card (and there are more of them now). Yes, you can still move your chat history, but it will need a PC to make it happen.

Here’s the process.. Attach the USB charging cord to the phone and plug the other end into your PC. (That’s basic stuff anyone using a PC knows how to do). Windows should automatically install any drivers you need, and then you can find the phone in the This PC section of File Explorer.

How to transfer any type and kind of file on whatsapp
Now look through the phone storage until you find the WhatsApp folder, and then copy it on to your PC hard drive. Once that’s done, Eject the phone, then connect your new replacement device/ handset to your PC as well..

Repeat the whole process, but this time around, you are going to be moving the file you copied from the old handset to the new one.

Move the WhatsApp folder onto its internal storage. Eject the phone, reinstall WhatsApp, and when you confirm your number the backup should be recognized and you can restore it. With this done you should now have all your past conversations on your new Android phone.

Stop Using Exact Match Domain and Start Building your Site in The Authority Model (You are Losing Money)

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 16:27
An Exact match domain is a domain name that has got the keywords a site is trying to rank for or the niche that site is based on. Say I have a site about “Bowling tips” I would go ahead to register a domain name and name it “Bowlingtips.com , Expertbowlingtips.com , probowlingtips.com , mybowlingtips.com , justbowlingtips.com , bowlingtipsforlife.com and other stuffs like that dot com.” (I just hope I don’t get penalized for using this keyword excessively here.)

Now that’s what we mean by the term “Exact match domain” as you have just by the domain explain all what the site is about and what it will continue to be for the time been.

Why Do People Use Exact Match Domain Really?

frustrated blogger loss I see so many bloggers get confused by virtue of following some self-proclaimed internet experts who tells them to create dozens of sites in different niches using the exact match domain keyword they are trying to rank for in that niche, drive tons of backlinks to it and put some AdSense codes with the aim of making $100/ month from it via AdSense.


Today, making $5,000/month is easier than making $100 each from about 20 sites… --Chris Lee

This is one thing many internet marketers still do not know and keep buying PBNs with high PR and registering exact match domains just to get favor from the search engines and rank their AdSense site (though there are some really smart guys who still rank with PBns till date).

Unfortunately this system of making money and ranking does not work anymore (at least not just for anyone anymore).
In summary, the main reasons why people go ahead to purchase exact match domains is because they feel it will help them rank faster and get traffic, then make some few AdSense bucks from Google.

matt cutts on exact match domain
They feel if I discover a keyword has maybe 50k searches per month and make a site about it (lest say cooking tips for men) and name it “cookingtipsformen[dot]com” whenever anyone just go online and type the word cooking tips for men their site will quickly pop up and they get the view.

Unknown to them that, “ what we have now dominating our search results are authority sites (some with PR and others without PR, just good quality contents and powerful links)” UPDATE: Google has completely disabled PR, so right now, all sites PR is zero.

So, even if your domain is exact match using the cooking tip example, a site with the name “funtime[dot]com” can outrank and continue to outrank your site for life because of its authority. (I bet you must have seen many of these cases from your google search before)

How You Are Currently Losing “and will keep losing” Money from Your Exact Match Domain.

First, having an exact match domain limits your site to doing just one specific thing which is not really all that profitable or long lasting.  (I will talk about that later, but not here). If blogging is a business, then treat it like one..  How? Imagine keywords within a niche have the following:
Keyword 1 --120,000
Keyword 2 --104,000
Keyword 3 --- 60,000k
Keyword 4 --- 50,000
Keyword 5 --- 46,000
Keyword 3 ---- 39,000
TOTAL = 377,000

From this table, site A registers a domain name with an exact match keyword based around 60,000 searches per month and starts blogging only on that keyword plus add some low quality heavy backlinks to it so as to rank for it and be getting at least 35 -40,000 visits per month and maybe make $100 from AdSense and $100 from affiliate products totaling $200 per month.

Site B (authority) Decided to target the whole keywords within the niche by going with a more generic domain name and first went for the keyword getting around 120k/month coupled with the other two getting around 104 and 60k/month, writes good quality contents on one keyword at a time, drive some powerful backlinks to it and all other proper seo work well-done.

If we leave these two sites to rank and watch them grow for the next 6months, we will see Site A shoot up the search result for its keyword quickly and be getting its $200/month from the site. ($200 X 12 = $2400)

Within the space of 6 – 7 and 8months, site B would have built enough authority and immediately slowly climb to the top for both first, second and third keywords + other hidden long tail keywords... Again, I repeat, if SEO done right.

Let’s assume Site B gets 35% out of the whole niche searches (which is in reality too small or not possible since it has built enough authority and recognition).
That’s 131,000 visits per month.   Doing the AdSense arithmetic, (see how to calculate AdSense earning using traffic stats). That will result to about $50/per day and $1500 per month from AdSense alone if properly done.

Let’s just assume the site is not even doing affiliate marketing, which is also not possible, but we will just assume it. (That’s for another day by the way.) ($1500 x the remaining 4months of the year = $6000)

From the result above, you can see site A (exact match small niche domain) gets $2400 in 12 months while Site B (Generic domain name) authority site gets $6000 in just 4 months.. 

Remember we can further monetize that site B for more profits. Imagine if it also decides to target another huge keyword related to that niche but in a diverse manner. I.E adding time management + Self-esteem +Confidence building  and since they all boil down to Just improving your life, the same site can go out as into the Health and Fitness niche, Recreational activity niche, and yes FASHION. WOW.

That’s more traffic, more money. The site just keeps expanding until it reaches 5figures monthly. On the other hand Site A might either get slapped by Google or stock and decide to sell the site for few penny, then go back all again to build a new blog.

Now you see how you are losing big money by just niching and niching down with your exact match domain name instead of expanding and increasing your reach and income.

A Good Way To Choose a Domain For An Authority Site

choose proper domain nameA good way to do this is simply just narrowing down and then expanding again. Say we wanted to create an authority blog based on the fashion niche, we can just as niched as “Men’s fashionable bolt tie” then expand again to “Men’s fashionable tie” again, “the co-operate man” “the casual man”, and further men’s accessories. Now, that’s huge enough.

We can decide to further go up again by adding, men’s relationship life, building their confidence, their health and latter fitness. Guess what our site is all about now? MENs LIFE... And do you know what possible domain we could use for this site? THEWHOLEMAN[dot]COM or MANLY[dot]com (I don’t know if these domains are available for grab]..

And then we go by first covering all about men’s bolt tie. That’s how the authority model works…
I hope this post was helpful enough to make you rethink and re-structure your blogging strategy for the best and make it a long time investment that generates the cash to pay the bills and live luxury.

Sitemap Importance and How to Generate One For Your Blog

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 09:37
The importance of sitemap or having a sitemap on your site can really not be over stressed. Before we go about confusing ourselves in this post/article, it is important to first know what a sitemap and its importance. 

For those already familiar with a site map and just wants to learn how to generate one and submit it to google, you can just move directly to the tutorial section. then open the eyes of those whom do not know of sitemaps or a sitemap. 

What is a Sitemap Really?

A sitemap is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. take not of the word “crawlers” and “users” as they both refer to the two major reasons why a sitemap was even originated in the first place. forgive my English.. 

Am not going to go through all that in this article, if you are interested to read more about sitemaps, then take a look at the following picked topics.

A sitemap is often considered redundant in the process of building a website, and that is indeed the fact if you made a sitemap for the sake of having one. By highlighting the importance of having a well constructed sitemap, you will be able to tailor your own sitemap to suit your own needs.

4 Obvious Reasons you Need a Sitemap

importance of a sitemap
importance of a sitemap


1) A Sitemap Is Needed For Navigation purposes

A sitemap literally acts as a map of your site. If your visitors browses your site and gets lost between the thousands of pages on your site, they can always refer to your sitemap to see where they are, and navigate through your pages with the utmost ease.

2) To Convey your site’s theme

When your visitors load up your sitemap, they will get the gist of your site within a very short amount of time. There is no need to get the “big picture” of your site by reading through each page, and by doing that you will be saving your visitors’ time.

3) A SiteMap Is Important For Site optimization purposes

When you create a sitemap, you are actually creating a single page which contains links to every single page on your site. Imagine what happens when search engine robots hit this page — they will follow the links on the sitemap and naturally every single page of your site gets indexed by search engines! It is also for this purpose that a link to the sitemap has to be placed prominently on the front page of your website.

4) For Organization and relevance

A sitemap enables you to have a complete bird’s eye view of your site structure, and whenever you need to add new content or new sections, you will be able to take the existing hierarchy into consideration just by glancing at the sitemap. As a result, you will have a perfectly organized site with everything sorted according to their relevance.

Google Updates that Changed How SEO used to be. 

How to generate a complete sitemap of your Blogger or Wordpress Blog using an online sitemap generator.

For All our newbie bloggers or those who have been in the field for some time now and yet still finds it difficult to be seen on the google search engine even when they are been searched for.. Please note that before you start thinking of ranking, it has to be first thing first.

The first thing to do is usually Submitting and claiming your blog on the google webmasters central. Normally, I like to submit my XML sitemap after i have gotten like 3 - 5 quality posts on a new blog. The XML Sitemap file is like a directory of all web pages that exist on your website or blog.

Search engines like Google and Bing can use these sitemap files to discover pages on your site that the search bots may have otherwise missed during regular crawling..

The Main Problem with Blogger Blog Sitemap Files  is the fact that usually on a regular site, a complete sitemap file should mention all pages of a site.That’s doesn't seem to be the case with blogger, The default XML sitemap file of any Blogger blog will have only the 26 most recent blog posts – (UPDATED) Blogger sitemap is Ok.

That’s a limitation because some of your older blog pages, that are missing in the default XML sitemap file, may never get indexed in search engines. There’s however a simple solution to fix this problem.

How to Generate a Complete Sitemap for your Blogger Blog

This section is valid for both regular Blogger blogs (that use a .blogspot.com address) and also the premium-domain hosted Blogger blogs that use a custom domain (like Mytechboard.com) (UPDATED) Wordpress users can also do the same procedures.

Here’s what you need to do to expose your blog’s complete site structure to search engines with the help of an XML sitemap.

    Generated sitemap for MTB
  • Open the Sitemap Generator and type the full address of your blogspot  or wordpress blog (or your self-hosted Blogger or wordpress blog).
  •  Click the Create Sitemap button and this tool will instantly generate the necessary text for your sitemap. Copy the entire generated text to your clipboard (see screenshot below).

  • Next go to your Blogger dashboard and under Settings – > Search Preferences, the enable Custom robots.txt option (available in the Crawling and Indexing section). Paste the clipboard text here and save your changes.

What Doesnt Work Anymore in SEO 2016/2017 (Important Google Updates)

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 08:04
So, you have decided to learn search engine optimization and wonder what really works and what doesnt. Many people including myself has used search engine optimization to grow small family-owned businesses, toy stores, large international fashion brands, and hotel chains.. Yes, you can do it too.

One thing never ceases to amaze me — the power of SEO as an Internet marketing tool for growing any business. I have grown small businesses into giant companies in just one or two years — simply from working the client's site up to the top position in Google.

Unfortunately, learning how to use SEO is difficult, if not impossible, for most business owners, Internet marketers and even tech-heads. The reason is this,

Going through the amount of information flooding the Internet about SEO is overwhelming. In many cases, most of the advice published is outdated or misleading. And the constant updates by Google makes it hard for SEO beginners and gurus alike to keep up with what works.

Anyways, I don't want to go in too much into SEO in this article, as the title explains already what this post is all about. "WHAT DOESN'T WORK IN SEO IN 2016"

Old School SEO Method That No Longer Works.

In the early days of Google — over 15 years ago — Google started a smarter search engine and a better experience for navigating the World Wide Web. Google delivered on this promise by d
elivering relevant search engine results.

Internet users discovered they could simply type what they were looking for into Google and BINGO! users would find what they needed in the top results, instead of having to dig through hundreds of pages. Google's user base grew fast.

Image by: bangweb
It didn't take long for smart and entrepreneurialy minded webmasters to catch on to sneaky little hacks for ranking high in Google.

Webmasters discovered by cramming many keywords into the page, they could get their site ranking high for almost any word or phrase. It quickly spiraled into a competition of who could jam the most keywords into the page.

The page with the most repeated keywords won, and rose swiftly to the top of the search results.

Naturally, more and more spammers caught on and Google's promise as the 'most relevant search engine' was challenged. Webmasters and spammers became more sophisticated and found tricky ways of repeating keywords on the page and then completely hiding them from human eyes. (background color same as text color).

All of a sudden, grandpa looking for 'holidays in Florida' would be left with the nasty surprise of arriving at a site about Viagra Viagra Viagra!

How could Google keep its status as the most relevant search engine, if people kept on spamming the results with gazillions of spammy pages, burying the relevant results to the bottom?

Entering Into the Google update.

lets dive into the udates world of google.

Google Florida

Google released a widespread update in November 2003 codenamed 'Florida', effectively stopping spammers in their tracks. This update leveled the playing field by rendering keyword stuffing completely useless and effectively restored balance to the force.

And so began the long history of Google updates, making it hard for spammers to game the system and making ranking high a little more complicated for everyone.

Recent Google updates and how to survive them.

Fast-forward 15 years and ranking in Google has become extremely competitive and considerably more complex.

Simply put, everybody wants to be in Google. Google is fighting to keep its search engine relevant and must constantly evolve to continue delivering relevant results to users. This hasn't been without its challenges.

Just like keyword stuffing, webmasters eventually clued onto another way of gaming the system by having the most 'anchor text' pointing to the page.

If you are not familiar with this term, anchor text is the text contained in external links pointing to a page.
I.E http://www.mytechboard.com = naked url
<a href="http://mytechboard.com">ANCHOR TEXT</a>

This created another loophole exploited by spammers. In many cases, well-meaning marketers and business owners used this tactic to achieve high rankings in the search results.

Google's Penguin

Along came a new Google update in 2012, this time called 'Penguin'. Google's Penguin update punished sites with suspicious amounts of links with exact-matched anchor text pointing to a page, by completely delisting or de-indexing sites from the search results.

Many businesses that relied on search engine traffic lost all of their sales literally overnight, just because Google believed sites with hundreds of links containing just one phrase didn't acquire those links naturally.

Google believed this was a solid indicator the site owner could be gaming the system. If you find these changes alarming, don't.

A Recap of What Doesnt Work 2016 In SEO.

Already, if you have read this post up to this point, then definitely, you have understood the point am coming from and already know what doesn't work in SEO 2016/2017 anymore.

But for the purpose of further simplification, i will just highlight the major lessons in this article.

1. Do not do or try to use keyword stuffing in your post to rank for that particular keyword.

2. Do not drive traffic to your site by pasting your sites url just anywhere you see.

3. When using links or backlinks, do not use a particular anchor text all the time. I.E a post about "Dog training" can have diverse anchors as "Dog breeding, Dog upbringing, Dog training, dog training tips, pet training, pet upbringing, pet training (dog) guide"

If you have been penalized by google before, How to recover from these changes, or to prevent being penalized by new updates, will be posted soon.

In the short history of Google's major updates, we can discover two powerful lessons for achieving top rankings in Google and staying there.

1. If you want to stay at the top of Google, never rely on one tactic.
2. Always ensure your search engine strategies rely on SEO best practices.

3 of The Most Common Email Problems and Their Ultimate Solutions

Posted By: Confidence Ezemadu - 14:51
Why do we even encounter problem with our mails in the first place? Its a question I just cant really answer in a sentence. not withstanding, in this article, we we are going to be learning about three of the most common email problems and how to fix them automatically or manually based on your own point of view. **winks**

Please note that the article you are about reading is a 1600+ words article as every of the problems and solutions are explained in details. So, grab a glass of juice, a pen and paper and note down some crucial points.

Email popularly known all around the world as "mail" is an online system for sending, receiving and saving information either in the form of an image, text, video or letter for future purposes.

Mail= letters and packages conveyed by the postal system.
Email= Electronic mail is a method of exchanging digital messages between computer users; such messaging first entered substantial use in the 1960s and by the 1970s had taken the form now recognised as email.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email

Today, e-mail has become a part of our everyday life as we continue to evolve into the world.

Sometimes, while using this technology, little problems tends to arise that bothers the user. We have previously talked about returned messages and lost connections, both which can be aggravating, and also did supplied solutions. 

See: Common Email problems and how to fix them Yourself
But there are a few more problems that can affect an e-mail user and cause frustration. Not to worry, we will address these problems here, and again provide reasonable solutions to overcome them.

Problem 1:- You Cannot Send a Message:-

Even when there is no shortage of connection, you may attempt to send an email, but find that it continues to remain in your out box instead of delivering.


email problem one, cant send a message
This is majorly a software problem, the result of otherwise unaware damage or corruption to one or more e-mail messages. To fix this problem, first copy any unsent message(s) as text, save them on the or your computer's hard drive or a back-up storage device. After you have saved all messages, highlight all the messages in your out box and click on "delete" or "clear".  When you are clearing your out box, start over. Just copy all unsent messages from the text files, paste them into a new e-mail message or messages, then re send.

Problem 2: The E-mail is Missing an Attachment or the Attachment Just Won't Open

An essentially handy feature of e-mail is basically the ability to send and receive attachments (files). Transmitting documents, photos or other of such information can save a whole lot of time and money compared to the local Mail or express delivery services/ courier. Even with all of these benefits, attachments can really be headaches at the same time. One of these common frustrations is to receive an e-mail message that refers to an attachment, but ends up finding nothing is there.


Sometimes, the best solution is to simply request that the sender try sending it once again, since we are all humans and makes mistakes sometimes. It is not unusual for the writer to refer to an attachment, but then forgets to attach it.

Even if this seem not to be the case, your request might prompt the sender to re-think the attachment's format before transmitting again. If the problem persists, consider asking the sender to paste the contents inside an e-mail message and try sending again. This may disrupt formatting, design and all that, but can be an effective way to circumvent attachment problems.

If you see a message telling you that the attachment has been deleted, there are just few possible causes of this. It may be that your anti-virus software has detected a virus in the file, and you're better off without it anyway. But if you eventually find that all attachments are being deleted indiscriminately, then check your mail properties.

If a box is checked/ ticked or selected that blocks all attachments, just remove the check mark so that you can be able to receive attachments. If then you receive a message from a person you do not know or trust, or if the message or attachment seems suspicious, just delete the message even without opening the attachment.

SEE: 10 Necessary tips to stay protected online

A commonly related problem is to see that an attachment has been sent or transmitted, only to find out you are unable to open it. The causes (and as well, the solutions) varies. In some cases, the problem is this, "the software which the sender has used to send the attachment does not match that of the recipient or receiver". 

As with a missing attachment, a simple way to remedy the situation is to ask the sender to copy and then  paste the contents of the attachments within a follow up mail message. Even if formatting (design and all other fancy things)  is disrupted, you can still get the main idea of the information. Yes, you can equally use your own copying and pasting process to reformat the contents, if that is important.

Another approach is to save the document to your hard drive, and then open the software program that was used to create it initially (only do this if you trust the source of your attachments). Once this program is running or in use, your computer may be able to recognize what had been used in creating  the attachment, and open it.

If you still do not have the appropriate software to load it on your computer, your computer will eventually give you a prompt to search for the file/download it. You may be able to download it from the Internet, just follow the on screen prompts on your computer screen to proceed.

Social Media practices to help you stay safe on social media even as you chat..

Problem 3: Receiving and Have too Much Incoming Mails or Cannot Download The Ones You Have

solution to too many emails
If you are receiving large volumes of e-mail from different people, you may be vulnerable to several difficulties.


Many of the Internet service providers place limits on the amount of storage provided to each user (though most of them have recently increased storage limits which is great).
See: List of Email Providers With their Storage Limits

If a pre-set limit (by your provider) is reached, maybe because you've not downloaded your mails for a long time, SPAM or virus induced flood of messages, additional messages will be bounced back to those who sent them.

The direct approach is to download your mail and then clear it out, but a smarter move may just be to access your e-mail account via Web mail. That way you can see a list of all your messages (mails) and quickly delete any one that do not appear to be of interest to you.

Whichever way you choose to use, the end result is the same, but this step can not only save you a great deal of downloading time using a dial up modem, but also adds an extra measure of virus protection even if you have a broadband connection.

Since you're deleting messages from your ISP's server before they even have a chance to infect your computer, relating it to our personal life, it's just like killing mosquitoes on time before they bite you instead of afterwards. That way, you don't get a your skin dented or an infection. 

If you do not have a Web mail account, it's easy to get one. Simply go to a provider such as Yahoo , Google mail or Lycos and register an account. You can also use a site such as mail2web or webmail4free without even registering. 

Go to any of the sites and enter your e-mail address and password. You will see a list of all incoming mail which you can either read and then retain for downloading, or delete, whichever one you choose.

A similar challenge that may be caused by unusually large message is a scenario where hefty or long messages may take a long time to download which can be very annoying. this problem is more common with dial-up modems. In the worst cases, you may find yourself unable to receive other messages.
Reason: The connection with the server where your messages are stored is severed when a time limit has already been reached.

Again, a Web mail can also do the trick here. Just log on to the third-party site, use the list of messages in your inbox, and choose the one that is the largest (most of the web mail programs automatically list the sizes of each message). If the message is of potential interest, open and read it, you can  then delete it. 

If it is obviously spam or something in which you have no interest (I.E Facebook notification messages), you can delete the message without even bothering yourself to read it. Once you have removed the annoying message, other of your incoming mails will no longer be blocked.

If you do not have Web mail, you can contact your Internet Service Provider for help. Once a customer service representative deletes the offending message from the ISP's server, you can then download all of your remaining messages.

Also note that keeping too much e-mail can be an organizational problem, if not a technical one.  Take time to delete e-mail and attachments that does not need to be saved for future reference. Allowing too many messages to accumulate wastes storage space and makes it more difficult to find the important ones when you need to refer to them.

For messages that are worth keeping, just create a series of folders to help you easy location and navigation. More importantly, so that your inbox will not become too full.

Wheew.. Now am tired of writing about these 3 of the most common email problems and how to fix them. Guess that's where we draw the cotton on this topic today. Take these solutions into action and enjoy all benefits of your email provider. Have anymore to add or contribute? Feel free to use the comment box and don't forget to share.
