Re: Email domains being blocked - was "Many Thanks..."

Greetings all... I hear you Sharon....

Now after all of the virus threats that have gone around, entire domains are
blocked/blacklisted on my server --and on many of yours (I know my Road
Runner addy is blocked on many servers).... If I send someone a personal
email and don't hear back from them - I now assume - Oh well - my address
must be blocked..... AND if you send me an email and I don't get it - assume
Road Runner is blocking your email domain. I have had to enter each AOL
address into my Friends list on Mailwasher - other wise all would have been
bounced and Blacklisted. I do not Blacklist any email addresses that are
viruses and I hope you don't either.... as you will be Blacklisting innocent
people. I had to Un-blacklist my own email address. Remember - real people
are not sending out the viruses (well - the real person who created the
virus is -- but they are not coming from the spoofed email address)

From now on...this is what I am going to do.... If I spend a long time
answering someone off list and do not hear back.... I will post the entire
email to the list in hope that you will get it. All of you have my Yahoo
address to try.....Road Runner is my preference as I answer all of that mail
first. I usually do not post with Road Runner - but in this case it is
easier to do so. Once Getty changes how posts are archived - I will get a
new Road Runner address so I will no longer get hundreds of virus and Spam a

If you get a message that your email to me was rejected - I can get you
unblocked.....but will need the full error report you received - the reason

I hope this will helps the communication continue....
