When the number of bouncing posts regularly exceeds
the amount of non-bounce mail I receive - it's time
for some reminders.
Many of our subscribers use forwarding type e-mail accounts.
I have no problem with that.
However, please be aware that when the end (hidden) account
becomes discombobulated ("inactive" for our non-english
readers) for some reason, I get stuck with your bouncing
mail and trying to figure out who you are based on what I
have. The excite@home mess over the weekend is a good
example. If you have a forwarding address that doesn't
provide me with clues as to who you are (like a call or
name) - I'm stuck with a fast filling inbox and NO way to
turn you off. Even with clues, it's hit or miss sometimes.
So, if you have a forwarding account (like firstname.lastname@example.org),
you need to be proactive in managing your e-mail lists.
I would be happy to help you update your account.
While we are at it, during these very busy periods
(4 major contests in the space of 5 weeks), check your
inbox once in a while and empty it out. I have had
to unsubscribe a number of overflowing accounts. You
can also turn it off if you expect to be away.
All in all, this is a great list with few problems. But
you do need to maintain your account(s).
