  I'm wondering what brought this on, because I *just* started getting email
again.  I run my email server at home (basically because the coloated server
it used to be on was removed without much notice---long story with that). 
But then over the past week, I moved houses.  My domain (as well as a few
others) have backup MX hosts (two) but I was concerned about getting my
system up and running within four days (as it was, seven days).  

  I'm not sure if any of my email actually bounced (it queued up for three
days on my back up MX servers, then when I tried to have the mail delivered
locally on one of the backup MX servers it was all sent to a friend for some
bizarre reason I'm still trying to fathom) but I'm glad to see I haven't
been unsubscribed here.

	well ... it was *not* a good week ... )
