AOL & Me

Recently I encountered a problem - grrrr! Yesterday I read through quite a few blogs leaving comments (sometimes just lurking). Then I was sifting through and attempting to respond to my long list of e-mails from comments and such. After a few minutes AOL stopped sending my mail - they have decided that I'm a 'spammer'. LOL We've tried to figure out why but to no avail. Yahoo refused to deliver my e-mails and I received quite a few as 'returned mailed". So, we've decided that I needed to delete all my 'saved e-mails' and start anew. If you've left a comment with a question and didn't get a response from me please accept my apology and send it again. And, I've also been receiving many comments on my blog from so many that are set for 'no reply' - sadly I can't answer your questions or just say thank you for stopping by. Please set your blog to show your e-mail address - you'll be glad you did. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail address then set up a new one just for your blog.

I've finished another flimsy - want another teaser or does that frustrate you? LOL I plan to reveal my recently completed flimsies soon. Stay tuned! :-)

I'll be back later with pictures of incoming and outgoing mail. I just had a birthday and some bloggy friends remembered. :-)

In Friendship!

I'm having the same problem with no-replys lately , lots of questions and I can't reply. Super annoying.

Can't wait to see the flimsy!!

Another teaser please! And Happy Belated Birthday!

Quilt Hollow said...

I'll take a teaser please. :-)
Hey...I've got problems getting mail from Kelly at Charming and we can't figure out why all the sudden it happened. She is not in my blocked folder. I too have a few gremlins I guess.

Michelle said...

LOL!!!!!

Happy Belated Birthday!!!

I want to see!!!!

The only thing I miss about aol is the little guy that says "you've got mail!" I've used yahoo for years........best part you can access it from anywhere that you can get on the net. gmail is the same.

I was having trouble with sending emails to yahoo accounts last week and the week I was at the beach...they all came back...this week has been fine. I have no clue!
Teaser please...teehee!

If people show their email so they can receive replies to their comments, no one except the owner of the blog sees it, so it isn't a security problem. Their blog is listed in the comments and people can see that - so I don't see the sense in setting your email to "no reply" - it just frustrates blog owners who wish to respond. Setting it to allow replies pertains only to blog comments and it doesn't even show up there for the public to see - again, just the blog owner.

Can't wait to see your teasers.

So sorry about the mail problems - it can get frustrating when they are sent back.

I'll take one teaser at this table, please! Sorry about the email problems.

sunny said...

I wanna see! Tease away.

I can't believe I missed your birthday! Happy belated birthday anyway. I hope it was a really good one.

I'm just dying to see your bound-to-be-gorgeous projects. Teasers are good, too, though.

I've had a few no replys but lately more spam. So I've set my moderating comments in action to see if that will help. But with the moving and all I've been lagging behind in my responses.

Happy belated birthday! So which day was it? :-) And of course I want to see what you are up to! Since my sewing has been little to none, I need to live vicariously through someone!! :-)

kjquilts said...

Oh,no! A spammer? LOL! Happy Birthday Darlene. You're a sweetie pie in my book! I'd love to see another 'teaser'.

Cindy said...

Teasers are such fun.

And, although I don't know when it was, Happy Birthday dear friend.

Quilter Kathy said...

Hey....happy birthday!!
Can't wait to see the new projects!

Vicky said...

No-replies get no replies. It is frustrating.

Yes, please tease! You're the best teaser out there - and I mean that in the best kind of way! :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Teaser pleaser!
Happy belated birthday Darlene! Hope it was fabulous!

Carol said...

That is so weird about your email program. I hope you get ut fixed very soon. I can't wait to see the unveiling of your quilts. Glad you had a nice birthday.

quiltdolls said...

I love seeing your flimsy!
Because that means that fabric will be coming out soon.

You are the 1st blog I look at every morning.

Happy Birthday!!! Sorry I missed it- was it a good one? Hope you got to spend the day doing a little bit of stitching in between celebrating!!
Don't worry about replying...I know you're out there....
Take care and HAVE A GOOD ONE!!

Oh how I hate AOL - argh. Thankfully I don't have it anymore.

Good idea to set up an email just for your blog. I did that when I set up mine. It helps! And best of all, it doesn't get any spam, lol.

Can't wait to see what you've been up to! And Happy Birthday!

TinaTx said...

I had exactly the same thing happen with AOL yesterday! Eventually I was able to send emails again but how frustrating.

Karen said...

I definitely want to see the flimsy! And I didn't know it was your birthday - belated wishes! Hope it was happy.
