Here's my problem. I found out last Sunday from two friends of mine who had tried to e-mail me with questions and information about our class reunion (which was held last night, Saturday, June 2nd) that e-mails they had sent me were being returned to them by my ISP with a message stating it was due to the fact my account was "inactive." Both these friends thought this was really strange - also really funny too - that my e-mail would be returning e-mails with a message like that - due to inactivity on my part!
Anyone who knows me knows I pretty much camp in front of my computer the better part of the day and night! Rarely is my computer turned off and rarely am I not online.
Where I notice that I must be bouncing is through a group I belong to - a Yahoo group - The Writer's Life. This group is probably one of the most active groups around - frequent postings made there at all hours of the day and night and when I go several hours without an e-mail from the group now, as soon as I realize it' s been quite a long dry spell, I go to the yahoo group and check to see if I am ok or if I am showing up there as "bouncing" - meaning Yahoo can't deliver any messages to me because my e-mail provider isn't accepting them due to my supposed "inactivity."
Anyone here have any problems like that with their provider, their computer, etc? And, if so, what did you do to get it corrected anyway?
All this c rapola just makes me love Peoplepc.com and their service so much more ya know.
If it weren't that a change of e-mail address for me would be a royal pain in the old behind, I would drop this provider in a heartbeat! But the mere thought of sending out a change of e-mail address to roughly 200 people in my address book is something I really don't like the idea at all of having to do something like that! As a matter of fact, it's the only thing keeping me from switching over from dial-up to broadband through my tv cable company! I'm holding off there because peoplepc.com sent a message out not too long ago stating they will be adding DSL to their service in the very near future and anyone who switches over to DSL service when it is made available will be able to keep their current e-mail address.
That's so nice to know that you don't have to change your address when you have an address book the size of mine and subscribe to a kazillion other programs too which send me newsletters, and lots of other goodies too on a daily basis.
But, much more of this nonsense from peoplepc.com and their screwing around with delivery of e-mail messages and I am about ready to bite that bullet and change my e-mail address by subscribing to the broadband service available here in this area now.
Nite all! Time for me to go to bed!
