F**king Email...

My freeserve address really seems to be playing up. It is apparently bouncing back many emails that people are trying to send me. This really is not good as several of them are for Cubicle 7 contracts and contract negotiations which are bloody important (and at least one of them is time sensitive).

I'm going to get a brand new email POP address tonight and start using that and PRAY it works fine. I'll be keeping the old freeserve account going as I've had it for almost ten years and it's been spread far and wide. I guess I'm lucky in some ways that if I ever do give up my freeserve account I'm pretty easy to locate on line if people can remember my surname. One quick google search and they'll have located me ;p

If you have sent me an email recently and not had a reply it's probably best to mail the new addy that I'll post later this evening.

why don't you use your cubicle 7 domain for your emails anyway ? AFAICT you hosting providier (bluehost right?) do already include pop3 mailboxes.

That way you are only dependent on your cubcile 7 proivider and even then only so for as as it takes to transfer the domain (normally about a week).

When we do this sort of thing for our customer we tned to setup an auto-fetch on our server so that their old email address still works (modulo the old ISP).

I'll be neding up with angus@ cubicle7.co.uk as a full POP address. At present it acts as a forwarder to my freeserve account.

D'you want an invite to Googlemail? You could always use it as a just-in-case fallback if nothing else. I'll send you one anyhoo, you don't have to use it :-)

I can give you a free Googlemail account if that helps?

E-mail me

geoffbrown@manchester.com if you want one?

Re: hehe
Yeah like any email ever sent to THAT account goes anywhere near anything I need!

Could the Freeserve one have reached its capacity with accumulated crud? Sometimes it's worth going on through the ISP's web interface and seeing if there's a load of stuff in there.

And, reacting to a later post you made: it's simply not possible to use the internet seriously these days if you have a significant online presence unless you use some sort of spam blocking software, either at your end or at the ISP.
