Yes, I use Yahoo. Gasp.


I’ve just had one of my long-held suspicions confirmed. My Outlook is playing silly buggers (and probably has been for several months).

If you’ve tried to reach me via my work email address – and haven’t received a response – please accept my apologies. Chances are very strong that your message didn’t come through to me. I’ll try to get to the bottom of the problem.

In the meantime, however, I’d greatly appreciate if you could CC one of my admittedly old-fashioned Yahoo email addresses – mary_b_kirby@yahoo.com (hey, what can I say? I still like Yahoo!)

According to The Oatmeal’s “What your email address says about your computer skills” blog post, a Yahoo email address means that you usually type in all caps and send out email chain letters. I assure you I do neither. And all emails are confidential.

Separately, for those of you who have been looking for the RSS feed for this blog, you can find it here.

    You mean, after all these years, I am not alone?

    You are not alone. I’m right here with you. So that makes two of us. :)

    Rejoice! You could be using AOL ;-?

    eMail message assasination seems to be a
    pervasive (flight)global problem though.

    eMails quite often either vanish or get a
    “not at my desk” response set up a couple
    of years ago.

    Don’t blame Outlook. It is probably a problem with the spamfilter your employer uses, which is set as strictly as possible.
