Email malarkey

Not to mention shenanigans. Unfortunately, my service provider has – for the third time this year – screwed up my email. If you sent me an email between Tuesday and today, Friday, the chances are it’s in some kind of holding pattern. The update email from UK2, which came forty-eight hours after the breakdown started (despite the secondary address I gave them for precisely this scenario), tells me that the lost emails have been archived somewhere and will be repatriated over the next few days.

This is particularly irritating because it’s happened twice already. It might well be time to change provider…

  1. G mail is great. You can pick up an account direct from Google now I believe, but if you would like an invite, let me know and I’ll send one.
    Good organisation system, lots of free space, etc.

  2. Thanks, Maxine. I’m up and running now…I’ll try it out for a few weeks, then I think I’ll transfer permanently. Damn those people at UK2…I’m still getting emails that were sent a week ago!
