I received a phone call yesterday.
That b*st*rd Dick passed it on to me. Revenge?
It was from a client who is complaining about his mail not working.
I hacked into his account and went in to the bit where mails are set up. It seems he has been setting up his own mails.
Now, for the uninitiated [including myself], there are two types of account here – a POP account which is where you log in and retrieve all your mails [similar to a Gmail or Hotmail account], and there is a Redirect. A redirect is where you write to that address and it is forwarded on to another account.
So when you write to me at grandad at headrambles, it gets forwarded to [email protected] Got that?
Now this company have set up a total of 36 POP accounts, and another 27 Forwarders. Nothing wrong with that? [apart from being a bit excessive?]
Well, there is.
Because a lot of the addresses are the same on both lists.
So if I write to A, it might end up in A’s account because he has one. Or it might be forwarded to B and C because A is a Forward account as well. Now we don’t know which it will go to, but we assume it goes to B and C.
But B has an account and it also has a forward which points back to A. So that poor old mail may end up going in circles until it dies of exhaustion.
So their mail system is a spaghetti of interconnecting mail accounts which they set up. It is no f*cking wonder they are having problems.
So who are this company?
They are a major training company here in Ireland. And what to they give courses in and degrees in?
Of course I deleted all their files and put a porn site there.
They don’t deserve to have a web site.
