i'm not getting e-mail updates this morning.
my e-mail account appears to be ok.
is it a site-wide problem?

thanks

Have you checked all the boxes in your profile? Pretty dumb question, but someone has to ask it!

maybe do you have also a spam filter, which works not optimal?

My Yahoo bulk mail had a bunch in it this morning, which was very unusual.

i bet that's where they are... unfortunately my company's firewall blocks yahoo access (except i can see the 9 most recent e-mails in my inbox).

i think that's the answer. yahoo now considers the updates to be spam. Rolling Eyes

I got a lot of other updates though, so we'll see if this keeps up.

I forgot to check yahoo when I got home tonight.

To clarify, I have a dsl through a yahoo affiliate. If I go to yahoo first and look quickly at what is listed in bulk and then delete it, I can then go over to my outlook express and read the rest at leisure, having only a few spammies get through and those usually be magenta, the color I chose for the offenders. I like OE for ease of reading and deleting, as opposed to the yahoo rigamarole.

But once in a while I forget, and open OE first, and am inundated with both reg email and a river of majenta.

I did get a lot of a2k updates tonight, so maybe that was just an aberrant pelicanbeak full of a2k on yahoo this morning.



I guess I should 'splain, I have a Mac. A lot of spam filter stuff is directed at PC's. I kind of like being able to review it anyway, as I sometimes find architectural news digests and letters from my cousins in with spam bulk.
