Snippet: Email Access

May 16th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

*snippet* After 3 days, I’ve finally managed to get hold of my email box! I’ve been receiving around 2,000 spams per day to my main email box at my ISP and they are currently in the process of upgrading the mail system to add more load balancing capabilities: however, whilst the upgrade is going on, I’ve found it very hard to do a “spam clearout” (Mailwasher fetches the mail, but is unable to delete it until around 3 hours later). But I’ve now got access to my box and there are 185 emails awaiting my attention.

Luckily, I know that the majority of them are automated messages (server X has done this, “systems have been stable” etc), but there still is a number of messages I need to reply to (plus I’ve got a meeting with the bank manager tomorrow morning). Gimme until 3pmish British time tomorrow to catch up with thing please! πŸ˜‰

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
