Email problems

ETA: The prillalar.com email seems to be trickling in now, just in time for the runbox mail to go down. This has got to be karma. I'm terrible at answering email.

I'm not getting email from hal @ prillalar.com right now and haven't for the last day or so. If you need to get in touch with me, you can use prillalar @ runbox.com. I can get comment notifications for my own journal from Recent Comments but not other journals. (Well, until just now when I changed the email address.)

Test mail from two accounts just disappears, while gmail gives a "domain name not found" error. The website is up, though, at least for me: http://prillalar.com.

I haven't tried to contact the host yet because of the strange circumstances of my hosting. The company is a small, probably one-man, operation based in the UK. When I signed up, the hosting fees were very reasonable and I had shell access and other cool things. Later on, the admin decided to move his billing system from a third-party to one he was building on his own. It would take a few months to complete and then everyone would be moved onto it.

I was never moved on. I have contacted the admin on several occasions, asking to pay for my hosting, but have never got a response. I figure I've made a good effort and it's up to him to make sure I'm charged for my account. But it does make me less likely to harass him with support requests.

I've got a good backup so if I had to move, I could do it almost instantly. I just hope I don't have to.

(But I'm still happy!)
