Sometimes, the most effective emails are the ones you don’t send at all. “Don’t send that email until you’ve read this. Seriously, don’t.”
Gavin Sullivan’s parents are missing four months worth of emails, and they think Comcast is to blame. What should they do?
“Four months of emails are MIA — what should we do?”
I’ve combed through more than 10,000 emails trapped in a queue and responded to every one.
For those of you following along at home: I haven’t been getting all of your messages. Since January, some emails were landing in an unchecked “in” box instead of getting forwarded.
Yeah, it’s pretty embarrassing.
You’ll never believe it, but I’ve managed to sift through all of the June and July emails this weekend. And I haven’t thrown my laptop out the window yet.
The Readers Digest version so far: Since January, 10,000 emails have been stuck in a digital limbo. It’s a mother lode of messages – everything from requests for help from consumers to hate mail.
The most embarrassing email? That would be the one from my sister in Phoenix with pictures of my newborn niece. I’m so sorry I missed that one, Aimee. And a very belated thanks for sending snapshots of the new baby. She’s a cutie.
“I know what you sent me this summer”
It took the better part of this weekend, but it looks like I’ve sorted through my September mailbag. And I found a few surprises.
For those of you just tuning in, one of my email addresses experienced a total malfunction, holding more than 10,000 messages in a queue since January. I explain everything in this post.
Of course, there are numerous other ways of reaching me — social media, my primary gmail address, email@example.com, or phone. But often, people assume a single email always gets to me. Sadly, technology can sometimes let you down.
