Email Nuisance

Spam­Cop is hav­ing DNS prob­lems due to some screw-up with their domain reg­is­trar. I fil­ter most of my email through their servers, so I sel­dom actu­al­ly see any of the hun­dreds of spam mes­sages sent to my var­i­ous accounts on any giv­en day (oth­er than scan­ning the list of senders and sub­jects before I tell SC that they’re tru­ly spam, and should be report­ed as such). To get my email, for now, I had to un-for­ward those accounts and POP them. Ewwww!

Some mail that was for­ward­ed is prob­a­bly still sit­ting “stuck” some­where, so if you sent me a mes­sage and did­n’t see a response I’m prob­a­bly not ignor­ing you.

On the oth­er hand, POP­ping the accounts that are nor­mal­ly for­ward­ed result­ed in me get­ting a whole bunch of mail from the begin­ning of Sep­tem­ber that I had nev­er seen before. Very weird. Maybe I should just POP those accounts every once in a while to see if there’s any­thing there.
