As of tonight I no longer have a catch-all email address for incoming messages to netwert.com. I’m receiving between 2,000 and 3,000 spams per day to the overall domain, and the IMAP web-browser-based mail system I use has been choking on the filtering of so much junk.
What this means is that you can’t use cutesy addresses to email me anymore. More importantly, I am no longer responsible for typos: friends of my mom’s who misspell “myrna” are out of luck, as neither Mom nor I will ever see the message.
This is a pretty crappy way to manage email, but until spam’s chokehold lets up, I’m more or less stuck. Maybe I’ll just move my whole life to Gmail.
