Ramblings - Computer issuesPosted Wednesday, March 12, 2008, at 8:33 AM
I recently went through a challenge with my websites and corresponding e-mail addresses. Because I had been doing some maintenance work on them, I was sure the problem was within the website or Internet Service Provider.
Alas, wrong again. Since this had many people perplexed I will share what we found out. I use Outlook Express and decided to try the feature that allows you to block e-mail spam. I never saw any great reduction, so I stopped.
HOWEVER, something in that feature caused my OE to start blocking everything coming from two of my e-mail addresses. We did not know that until desperation set in and I cleaned everything out, including my blocked sender list. Bingo!
As soon as I did that, e-mails started coming in again. None of my addresses were in the box but apparently within the routing information, there was some reference which resulted in the block. Beware!
