My btripp.com email is FINALLY back up and working! The host's server that btripp.com had been on died about a week and a half ago, and they "moved me" over to a new server, only NOTHING of the old stuff (settings, etc.) survived, including the btripp mailbox (there was a "postmaster" mailbox, but it wasn't catching anything coming in). I had been back and forth with them since, trying to get the thing back up and working (since all my mail dumps into that box), but I kept hitting a brick wall. It turns out that the problem was with their billing, since moving me over to the new server put me into their new account structure and I hadn't paid for that account (although having money still in the old one) and it wasn't letting create the btripp@ mailbox. Bleh. Anyway, I finally get a phone number to reach somebody there (I'd had a dozen e-mails from them, but NONE of them with any useful info) who walked me through re-doing the billing info (that was what appeared to be holding everything up) and then tweaking the settings for the mail.
I now can start addressing other things (like why none of my Unicity links seem to be working) ... since all my tech requests to them ended up in the btripp.com mailbox and all of that was BOUNCING out the past week! Makes me crazy. CRAZY, I tell you!
Of course, I'm not going to be able to do anything about that now, as I'm off to Boston tomorrow with The Girls for my elder niece's first communion. Yes, I am her Godfather. No, I am not looking forward to this "Irish Catholic Immersion Weekend". Plus, The Wife is not accompanying us (she burned up most of her vacation time back when my Mom died), so it's me and The Girls and O'Hare and all the potential chaos that implies. I tell you ... there are times when I really resent my sobriety!
