Technical Difficulties

November 9th, 2010 • Kate

01-danish-street-Wacky-Road-SignsJust a quick note for those of my followers who may not have seen my recent tweets: I’m doing my best to stay up-to-date on my query responses, but because I’ve done so many lately, several of your email providers seem to have the mistaken assumption that I’m spam. If you’re waiting to hear back on a query you sent from a,, or query sent in the last two weeks or so, I have responded, but you may not have received my response yet. I believe Comcast fixed my block, so I’m going to try to resend those recent responses that got bounced back. The others I’m still working on.

In the meantime, a quick poll!

    So nice of you to update everyone on query status and share this difficulty!

    Thanks for going out of your way to do this.

    I did Yahoo for a while, and they're okay, but I had a few queries get lost and always wondered if the problem was on my end, so I made the switch to Gmail. Because everything Google touches turns to gold, right? 🙂

    What a world — you get punished for working hard!

    I use hotmail for my home address, and Gmail for my writer's address; it seemed like a good idea to separate the two.

    I've used Gmail since before the beta was open. *proud of her toolishness* I've never had a problem with Gmail and its spam filter is top-notch. I have a couple of different addresses — one for married name me, one for maiden name me — though I also have an address (several) at my professional domain through Google Apps (so I'd consider that pseudo-gmail, ha). I haven't gotten in the habit of using that address as much as I ought to!

    Like Mark, I use Hotmail for my personal address, and Gmail as my professional address. So, for the purposes of the poll, I voted Gmail.

  6. Meghan Says:

    I'm in the same boat as Mark and Brandi. I voted Gmail for this, but I do have a hotmail account that I use as a personal email address.

    Sorry to hear about the technical difficulties – as if you weren't busy enough already!

    Comcast for me. I know next to nothing about computers – that's the hubby's dept.

    The only thing I've done in the past was ask Comcast for a new IP address when someone hijacked ours.

    Otherwise, I tell the hubby that my computer is broken. He waves his computer guru wand over it and the computer is fixed. It's magic.

    I was sending a group email earlier this week and couldn't get the AOL addresses to work. Took me several tries. And too much wasted time. For the record, I use Earthlink, though I have a gmail account, as well.
