mail problems

hey -- my mail problems haven't gone away -- it's taking up to 3 days for e-mail to arrive -- and sometimes it's taking up to a day for e-mail I sent to make it out. So if I'm slow to respond -- that may be why. If you need to get in touch with me right away -- try contacting me another way (if you don't know another way -- leave a note in this comment box).

It's probably going to be like this for the rest of the week -- we need a new piece of equipment and it hasn't arrived yet.

I feel your pain. Literally of course since I share your mail server. I'd switch to using one of my other 5 or 10 email addresses, but I just don't want to. :-) Hopefully that equipment arrives quickly!

Chris just called -- the problem should "improve" this evening (hopefully) -- apparently somebody send us over 100,000 e-mails over the weekend and that's clogging everything up.

If Chris doesn't get this straightened out, I'm leaving him.

On Valentine's Day.

I'm that annoyed.

Hey Reb...given the email problems, figured I'd ask you this here: I want to send you a submission, but the first poem has formatting requirements that don't copy correctly into the body of an email. Shall I send it as an attachment? -David HG

David -- send the poem as an attachment (and follow the rest of the submission guidelines) -- in the e-mail, be sure to state that I gave you permission -- else my co-editor will probably delete your submission unread.

100,000 emails? What the fuck? Hey isn't your hubby supposed to be some kind of a netowrk guru? I mean if he can't control this hshit, who can?

Senor -- it was a concentrated retailation attack for his automated spam reporting -- and the bulk of it happened while we were away and without our laptops, so he didn't realize it was going down.

The new piece of equipment arrived today -- and Chris should be back from Dallas in about an hour -- so it should be taken care of soon.
