My email is temporarily down. If you sent a message to firstname.lastname@example.org on or after Wednesday, May 11, I may never receive it. If you really need to contact me, then you know me well enough to find other ways to talk to me.
I called my email host, 1and1.com, to report the problem. The first call was with a clueless level 1 tech support idiot. She “reset” my email accounts and instructed me to call back in an hour if it wasn’t fixed. (I know she didn’t do anything. She was just hoping that any system-wide problems–she was aware of no problems at the time–would go away in the next hour.) When I called back, their 877 support number is broken! All I get is a voice message and a fast busy tone.
This problem has happened before, and when it’s fixed, I get a flood of backlogged emails. Let’s hope that happens again!
Assume my email is totally down until I post back.
