I had eighty five emails in my inbox when I last looked. But not one of them I could see. And my mail program refused to download them.
So I called Blueyonder. I was inter-bouncing, apparently. And seemingly, all because my brother had sent some rather large files via email, through my email account, on Saturday. They were too big for him to download, so bounced back to me, and also being too large for me to download (and so many of them!), they've fucked my inbox.
So I just spoke to a rather nice man on the helpdesk. He told me the only way that this can be sorted is if he deletes all the emails waiting for me to download. And while speaking to him, this went up from eighty five to eighty six.
He said he'll send me a confirmation email when all's well, and in his words, "In the next five minutes." That was a quarter of an hour ago. I'm starting to worry.
So, dear reader, if you've emailed me any time after Saturday morning, I haven't received it. Please resend! But perhaps wait a while. I've still not got that bloody confirmation email from Fraser. Yes, by the end of our conversation, we were on first name terms.
I'd rather have not known him at all and got all my emails.
