You want to hear about email problems?
Some :::expletive deleted::: decided to use the domain name I get my mail through as the reply-to for the spam he sends out.
I can't receive mail anymore. When I last looked, I had received 50,000 of these "addressee unknown" messages from mail servers out there who couldn't find the people this :::expletive deleted::: was trying to spam. They're coming in so fast my poor little email program can't keep up. And the person administering my mail server doesn't know what to do either, short of just turning the thing off.
And that was two weeks ago! I bet I've probably received a half million messages by now.
So now I'm using Google mail. We'll see how long that lasts.
I"m ready to go back to paper and pen, envelopes and stamps. Well, OK, not really... but it doesn't seem as far-fetched to me as it once did.
To boldly go where no wig has gone before.
