Email issues running amuck...

Do ya' ever just love the way a word sounds? LOL I love "amuck"! LOL

Anyway, if it were up to DaHubby, he would have scaled the walls of our ISP and domain providers by now in Viking fashion and took whatever the Swedish equivalent to a Scottish claymore is to the neck of the next person who answered customer service.
Ouch!

We found out that
GoDaddy.com - from whom we purchased the lovely northernbranches.com domain we so lovingly took MONTHS to pick out - has decided (in the interest of "saving" its customers from SP*M and vir*ses) that it will no longer allow ANY emails through (including my notifications that someone has commented) from Blogger and/or with Blogger hyperlinks and/or ANY hyperlinks for that matter. *sigh*

The dippy teenager professional customer service representative DaHubby yelled and argued conversed with informed him tough cookies that he may want to contact Blogger and ask them to discontinuing using hyperlinks in its emails.

Yea, right! We'll add that to our "might as well be banging our head on a brick wall" list. *sigh*


So, not sure how this will all pan out. My personal/"private" email address seems to have been freed up. But, the address I use only for this blog still seems to still be locked up tight.

I'll keep ya updated of any changes. And, just by the way, we will not be recommending GoDaddy or be appearing in any of their TV or print advertisements anytime soon! *wink*

Well, if it's any consolation - the northernbranches.com domain belongs to YOU. You can always have switch to another ISP to host your mail and your website.

Yea, that's what DaHubby said when he started calling other ISP's yesterday for prices! LOL

I have 95% of my email stuff transferred over from my old acct to my new accts and was just seriously bummed out at the notion of having to change everything *AGAIN*! LOL

I apparently spend WWAAYY too much time online! *wink*
