There is nothing more that I or anyone can do.
It is up to you to have a reasonably standard and reliable address.



If you are subscribed with a Hotmail or MSN mail address, forget it.
Hotmail and MSN mail are not competent enough to reliably deliver your subscription.
You need a respectable and reliable address.
No matter what the Taliban at their support say,
you will NOT see your subscription reliably and consistently.

If you have a Yahoo address, then it depends on your version of Yahoo mail,
and apparently on the moon and the amount of traffic at Yahoo.
Sometimes you may get your subscription for almost a month, and
then nothing for a few months, then mysteriously, without you doing anything,
you will see your subscriptions again.

If you have a Gmail address, make a filter! Gmail has excellent spam
filtering, but sometimes it is a bit too aggressive. If it gets triggered by
me writing about how to remove certain malware, it will from then on
consider mails from me as bad. Just make a filter that marks mail
from humor@webby.com in such a way, that it will never be put into the
spam folder. Gmail is very good and very reliable, and I highly recommend
Gmail, but you DO have to make filters for important mail.

The same applies to many other email services.
Find out how to whitelist with that program, and whitelist humor@webby.com

Auto-responders:
People KNOW that you don't work past 5 PM, and that you probably left
early anyway.They don't expect an instant reply, especially not from you!
They are just queueing up mail for you to read, whenever you get around
to checking your mail.

So, please quit being a nuisance, and stop annoying clients and friends
with silly auto-responders!

It is even worse, when your silly sniveling about not being at work, is sent
to a program, that delivers your subscriptions.


Have FUN!
