Default When e-mail goes down...

I just had this conversation with the receptionist in our corporate HQ:

"Hi, this is jds. Is E-mail down."

"No, our e-mail is up, but our internet is down."

"Okay. That makes sense, since the e-mail server is in your building. The outside offices have no e-mail, though. Has anybody notified tech support?"

"He's not in yet, but we sent him an e-mail."

Wow! This is part of the reason why I hate technology sometimes.

heh heh sounds like a normal day.


Couldn't be any better than my boss that yelled at me because some of his emails got blocked by the spam filter. Told me to turn it off so I did. What happens? Comes into my office a couple days later and yells at me because he is getting too much spam...


sheesh

Heh, that reminds me of when I reset people's voicemail passwords. It usually takes a few minutes for it to go through, so I say I'll call em back, and if they don't answer I'll leave em a voicemail with the new password.

Most people don't catch it.

Unless you send it to a specific blackberry email address, email to all company addresses would be affected.
