Welcome! Mimecast finds interesting door policies on email filters

The title is true

As much as this is an advertisement for Mimecast, the title of the article is true. It's not that ProofPoint or O365 can't block things...OK, O365 can't, but it's more about how people have their filters setup. Companies just do a poor job of filtering in fear of missing that 'critical email' they might get.

No, eight characters, some capital letters and numbers is not a good password policy

I set my password to 'incorrect', that way if I forget it and try to login it will tell me 'Your password is incorrect'
