Lounge member Not Brightest Bulb wondered about the motives of his new ISP, Frontier, when it sent an email advising him to upgrade his email security settings. He hates scare messages. What kind of outfit is Frontier, anyway?

Not Brightest Bulb’s fellow Lounge members didn’t share his suspicions of the suggested changes but did suggest several means of verifying both Frontier and its requests. You can verify them, too.
