Got this message, now ... [at least ... (we know now)] -- LaLa Land is found

.
Ever have an e-mail just disappear? The "To" person never got it. There is nothing in your sent box. It might have gone to Lala Land.
. .

That is the Funny Farm for missing computer stuff. Like "All the Gold is in Beverley Hills," "Many Missing Messages (MMM) are in Lala Land [Yahoo here]."

. . Just when I tried to send an e-mail I got this message on my screen. I determined that my message wasn't sent:

"Scheduled Maintenance


We are undertaking some essential, but extensive maintenance to improve Yahoo! Mail. During the maintenance period, some users may experience problems accessing Yahoo! Mail.We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.


Your account is in great shape and we are working to have it available again as quickly as possible.


Yahoo! Mail Team"

Not really a problem because: [THESE WORK GOOD WITH WRITING BLOGS TOO]
1. I always do a 'Control C' copy before I send. If the message is long I do it several times. Then if Yahoo acts up I can paste into a new shell and send again.
2. Sometimes my message 'goes away.' Welcome to Lala Land. Again not a problem:
a. I've don't the trusty old 'Control C' copy and can paste a my message in a new shell.
b. I don't put the addresses in until I am ready to send. Especially where the message is long and I might not have saved things properly. At least this way a part message won't be going out.
c. When I put the addresses in I always put my own address into the "Bcc:" position. That way I can assume that if I got it then it is likely so should the recipients.
3. Here, this time, it was Yahoo acting up. All of the above worked good. Nothing was lost except the first cut of my message. Where did it go? Into Lala Land.

Big relief, huh?
 
These are good ideas!
 
I always do that copy and save thing when I post in a blogger comment box. They are highly unreliable. I don't have that trouble with gmail.
 
This is real good advice, Jim.

My gmails are automatically sent to yahoo, but I never do 'Control C' -- maybe I should start?
 
I have often wonder about that,
I'm have a hard time opening my mail :(



hope all is well your way!

thanks for stopping by.

Hello to Mrs. Jim
