    Internet Service Provider (ISP)

    An ISP is the method by which a computer connects to the internet. The ISP is the company which provides the other side of the connection your computer's modem (phone, DSL, etc.) connects to.

    Open-Relay Email Server

    An Open-Relay Email Server is one that will allow mail clients to connect from any place on the internet, rather than from a trusted list of computers. These servers are the source of 90% of all spam email messages, and are therefore frequently blocked by other email servers so as to limit the amount of spam messages received by users.

    Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3)

    The POP3 protocal allows an email client to download messages from an email server to the local computer. Sometimes also called a "mail server" by an ISP.

    Simple Mail Transfer Protocal (SMTP)

    The SMTP Protocal is used to send mail from one computer to another. Sometimes also called a "mail server" by an ISP.

    Virtual Private Network (VPN)

    A Virtual Private Network is a means by which computers can act as a single physical network, when in fact they are spread accross the internet.
