We are thinking about using your netpager pro for our dispatch center can you tell if it tracable by hackers when it dials out or is being sent via the internet?

If you are concerned about security, then using a modem and phone line to dial out to the carrier(s) is the better way to go. The only way to intercept this type of connection would be with a phone line tap and some fancy equipment.

If someone were to be 'watching' your internet connection and you were using it to send out the messages, then it is theoretically possible for them to read the data. The possibility of this happening is somewhat less than the same thing happening to normal email messages of yours.

Most of the newer firewalls can configure port 25 to only allow outbound traffic
