"Secure Shopping"...um...yeah

So, if you just got an e-mail or two, or five, from me entitled "secure shopping"...please know that it is a hotmail virus...not some great new business that I've set up.

I am so over hotmail. Yet I have an emotional attachment to it...the account created just a few days before we had Lily...so I'll probably never change.

Unless of course these viruses keep happening. This one was particularly nasty. Not only did it e-mail everyone in my address book with some website to visit (don't do that, please), it also set up an automatic vacation reply for me...with, you guessed it, another website. Nice.

So, I went in to send a message out about this virus and that is when hotmail notified me that I had reached my outgoing message limit for the next 24 hours. Double nice.

If you are trying to reach me, or have sent an e-mail and are awaiting a response...try the email associated with this blog or better yet, Facebook.

Looks like hotmail just gave me a little e-mail vacation.

Hotmail drives me crazy too.
Sorry they are such knuckle heads.

i have one of those emails i couldn't seem to separate w/ on hotmail. i finally decided to keep that as my junk address and made a new one w/ the same first part "lovemyraysons" except a different host.

clear as mud? hope everything gets resolved soon.

I get so many weird e-mails I wouldn't even notice.

Ooohhh I would be beyond frustrated! Gmail is a dream (for me), girl. No problems thus far! :)
