Tumbleweeds, again

Pretty quiet in here. Let me guess, you're all hard at work generating
"mail undeliverable" messages to send to my users by the thousands.

You weren't supposed to guess that! 😉

Re: Tumbleweeds, again

Not me. Writing rules upon rules to ensure that all undeliverables that
aren't real undeliverable messages don't ever appear in the officers'
mailboxes has been enough fun, without having to pass it along. Most
users I just advised that they turn on junk mail filtering until it
passes. It seems that each person gets hit for 2 or 3 days, then it
moves on.

Re: Tumbleweeds, again

I hear ya! Yesterday I had to fine-tune the rule for one of the "senior
nervous users" and it was so long it wouldn't stay on the screen - I had
to keep scrolling down to see the line I was keying on.

Most of our folks only get hit for a day or two but a couple have been
pummeled for weeks - that's why I thought I'd try creating an SPF
record...but that's another forum.

Anyway, that sort of thing makes it just a little harder to maintain the
"we're perfectly safe and in control" image, doesn't it?

Re: Tumbleweeds, again

at least you don't get (L)userAdmin types. We have 6 network types working here, of which all of us go on the road for disasters. (I'm on the injured reserve/disabled list till my shoulder heals) There have been times where I am the only IT person here (my shoulder again) and a email question/issue comes up.

The "policy" / "rule" that each regional office / disaster team will only get 3 email admin types problem has arisen. We say we need to have all the network types on the list with admin rights. They say only three allowed is the rule.

We point out that everyone goes on the road and what happens when a email issues crops up and no admin is around to fix it?

We understand your grief, but only 3 email admins are allowed.

Re: Tumbleweeds, again

Ah, I see you have attempted to battle the Immutable Arbitrary. There's
no quicker way to have your cranium implode from sheer frustration.

How is your shoulder comin' along?

I didn't have quite enough recuperation time to make it all the way
through your Tigger blog, so I'm still workin' on it at spare moments.
Yesterday I wore real shoes to work for the first time since the surgery
on 4/17. I'd been wearing my "granny" slippers until then and I tell
you, it's hard to get serious about work when you're in your slippers.
