Hoffa-Livingston, Message Hat

Changing E-Mail (Watch This Space)

Our service from Speakeasy has been getting increasingly flaky, with more outages in the last couple months than in the previous few years. The last straw was that messages from addresses that are in the spam filter whitelist have been repeatedly dropping into the spam bucket anyway (and attempts to re-enter them into the whitelist don't work); the dreadful webmail interface to fish through the spam bucket is just the icing on the cake.

After considering the range of "competition", such as it is, we're going to Verizon FiOS. I have some misgivings, but they seem less bad than the alternative (Cox cable internet). The scheduled install is in two weeks; once I verify that it works I'll distribute the new e-mail address.
