RMail Recommends Provides Real In-The-Moment Training For Staff Without The Time It Takes To Train Them Throughout the year, many of us corporate worker bees are mandated to do some sort of online training (e.g. p-card use, harassment, etc.). The email comes in (tagged important of course), and we are given a few weeks to […]
The RMail Domain Age Detector Alerts Senders Before They Reply to BEC Domain Lures Now that many of us are going back into the office (for now), some of those tried-and-true office quips are making a comeback.
