Thick as a brick

Setting security for the Internet Zone to High in Internet Explorer pretty much renders it completely useless, the internet equivalent of a brick.

Nonetheless, these are the instructions I distributed to our staff:

More websites are exploiting the latest Internet Explorer vulnerability. Even when there’s a patch for this one, there will be something else. If you use IE, you should set your browser to be paranoid.

Here’s the quick and easy way to secure your browser. (Be sure to do this on your home computers, too.)

  • TOOLS -> INTERNET OPTIONS
  • Click on the SECURITY tab
  • With Internet selected, click on Custom
  • Choose HIGH and click RESET
  • Click on Trusted Sites
  • Click the SITES button
  • Enter the CCIM webmail site, https://xxxx.xxxxx.com
  • Click ADD, then OK, then OK.

The last piece is because you can’t use Outlook Web Access without a LOT of active scripting.
