My ISP gave up and sold their dial-up business to Earthlink, who is moving my mail from the old servers to the new ones. And they have managed to really screw up my mail in the process, resulting in a bunch of lost mail. Wonderful.
You know, when my two-bit webhost screws things up, I know I’m getting what I pay for. When I can’t use Blogger for a weekend, I’m getting what I pay for. But Earthlink is a big enough company that I assumed they would manage common stuff like this without a hitch. More fool me. When I called tech support about the problem, the guy on the line said “Well, sometimes it takes 24-48 hours for these things to work out.” In what alternate universe can someone get by without their business e-mail for a couple of days? I get over a hundred messages a day – this kind of backlog I don’t need. Maybe I should be thankful they were losing the messages, instead of just queueing them up!
Anyway, if you sent me mail in the last day and I ignored you, try again.
