I had planned to blog a few thoughts about the Royal Commission in Australia. The best laid plans however…
Something went awry with my Microsoft Outlook, which I use for my personal emails. I could suddenly neither send nor receive emails. I fiddled around for ages trying to get things fixed and functioning before finally calling Ma Bell. Quite some time was then spent re-setting passwords and settings – in the process the technician had to check something on my Windows Live Mail, which I use for Sylvia’s Site. Bell is not responsible for and will not address issues with Windows Live Mail. Well, now my personal email is working, but everything I send from the site email goes out with my personal email address on it. I fear it will cause much confusion. I called Bell back – was unable to speak to the technician whom I dealt with before, and was told by a different technician that Microsoft has changed something or other as a security thing, and that all sorts of people are having this problem and there’s nothing that can be done!
Well, this is a bit of a pickle to be in. It’s not that I mind people getting my email address, but a case of keeping emails semi-organized.
Anyway, an entire afternoon lost fiddling around with all of this stuff 🙁 Not sure what I will or can do to fix things. Right now I have no option but to try things for a few days and see how I can deal with it.
I don’t know if you can make any sense out of all of this. The bottom line is that this has been a bit of a time consuming headache, and it probably isn’t over 🙁 I just am not and never will be a computer nerd!
