    What happened

    Hi,

    Altho very busy, I usually find time to read the mail on the 5-6 lounges I subscribe to. Sometime last week (tue, wed?), I stopped receiving any email. OK, maybe the servers are down.

    By now, I figured my guess probably was wrong. SO I went to wopr.com, clicked on the lounge link, and checked my profile. All of my subscriptions were turned off. I guess I was getting everything in my profile.

    So what happened? How did my profile get changed? Trust me, it wasn't me. I just changed items back for what I wanted.

    Trying to save on postage? <img src=/S/blackhole.gif border=0 alt=blackhole width=15 height=15>

    I stopped them because they were all bouncing. Is your server accepting them again now?

    Eileen,

    Thks for taking the action. I was not aware our server was bouncing them. I've been getting lounge email for several months. I'd assume this was a temporary reason from our server admin but I wouldn't have a clue as to the cause of their action.

    Anyway, I got email today for 4 of the 6 lounges I signed up for. I'd assume the other 2 didn't have anything to say.

    I also noticed I can go back and look at email for the last x hrs/days. At this point, it looks like going back 7 days should get me caught up. However, it wasn't clear if this was on a per lounge basis.

    Eileen,

    I checked with one of our tech support people - not associated with our email systems but in our desktop support group.

    What happened is that some corp group was concerned about the flooding caused by email coming from listservers, not to mention the expanded virus potential. SO a group was doing data gathering and shutting everything down coming from any list server.

    So a question might be how to allow email of a useful nature through while not flooding the systems. Not that I expect you to solve it - dealing with office problems is probably more than enough.

    These busy-body 'police' are doing this to a lot of people with the result that they can't use the 'Subscribe' feature. Don't worry, soon there will be alternative ways of keeping up with the Lounge. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thks Eileen.

    Hopefully the soln will be better than the one I've heard is the "proposed solution" - go to the web site and read the info from there.

    <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15> That's right up there with "Reinstall Windows".

    No... we can do a bit better than that. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
