More Than Anyone Ever Needed to Know About My Email

I'm probably the only one who cares about this, but I'm happy with what I just did.

As many of you know, a while ago I found that was bouncing the emails I had forwarded from my mab address (the one at mabfan). Since that one's been overloaded with spam, I didn't want to create a mailbox for it at the mabfan server, so I created the new address, michael, and I told everyone to switch to that.

Well, today I remembered that Eudora has filters. So I created a mailbox for mab on both the server and in Eudora. Now I can use mab again, because instead of having it bounce from or go to my web-only gmail account, it comes into my computer and all gets filtered into one mailbox. I expect most of that will be spam, so it'll all be isolated, but that means I can continue using mab as my "public" email address, and when I get the occasional email to that address from someone real, I can email them right back from the michael address and ask them to use that from now on.

Does anyone care? I didn't think so. But I would like to thank Andrew Greene for having made all this possible for me, when he found a company to host mabfan.
