Email Woes

I have heard through the blog, and from a few select people who can get through, that both of my email addresses have been bouncing over the weekend. Something about messages containing prohibited virus or spam content...

As best as I can tell, when my email gets inundated with spam it gets feisty, since I do have a spam filter that weeds suspected bad mail into junk. But every now and again this happens.

I'm not going to post my other email address publicly because I don't want spam there. It's possible to private message me through Crimespace, and that's the best suggestion I have if there are ongoing email problems.

Some people are getting through so the email isn't completely disfunctional.

I've not had any trouble with the email I use, apparently even your spam filter knows that you like me best.

Yes, but you have the other email address... the one I share with great discretion, so that it flags me with notices when I receive a new message. I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to create an 'insanity' filter so that emails from crazy people are automatically filed under 'certifiable' - think that's possible?

The message the rest of them are getting made me write back to one and say, "Stop sending porn and you'll be fine."

see, and here I thought you just didn't like me anymore. :D

Y'know, I had that problem with both of my email addresses (sending to you, I mean) but it finally worked when I took out my signature file, which contains links to my websites.

Sandra Ruttan said...

James! You're still with us! Good to see you back - I know your schedule has been crazy.

Christa, weird. That's all I can say. I fear one day this week I'll get a sudden deluge of mail...

Well my email IP addresses were being hijacked by spammers... so I'm now one of those who sent you an email telling you about body part enhancement or some lonely Russian girl! ARH!

Sandra Ruttan said...

Mother Hen,

Just re-send the information about the enhanced Russian girl for sale with the subject heading "penis enlargement". Those always seem to get through, while the real mail goes astray...

: )

It's been happening with my friend, Dana's email. Aggravating as hell. Do you think the terrorists have won?

If by terrorists you mean spammers, then it's possible Mindy! ****ers. And people wonder why I'm an uptight bitch when it comes to being spammed.
