I want to help. I really really really really want to help.
No, really! I do.
But when you report an issue as:
XXXX@XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.com is having some outgoing
email issues. She doesn't rec. any error msgs. The email leaves her
inbox and arrives at its destination anywhere from 3hrs to 8hrs
later. Can we make sure this domain is not having issues? Maybe
check the logs and be sure that the delay is not on our end?
I can't help you very much. Sure, I have the sending address. What
about the recipient(s) address(es)? Which addresses are having problems?
Sendmail logs around
three lines per email, with the sender address on one log line and the
recipient address on another log line, which makes it rather difficult to
correlate senders with receivers.
Give me too much information. It's easier for me to discard what I don't
need than to have to ask for more information.
Just so you know.
Also, EMAIL IS NOT INSTANT MESSAGING! It got
through, didn't it? So what's the problem? Oh, you want instant
results? Use IM. Or even that
archaic of technologies, the phone.
Sorry about that. Just needed to vent a bit.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
