I suspect there are plenty of people who, like me, use their email inbox as a “to-do” list. Would they feel as stressed as I did the other night when all the contents of my inbox disappeared?
How would I find the guy who said he might shovel our driveway this winter now that his email was gone? What about the plane reservations I didn’t record because I knew I could refer to the airline’s email? And who might be waiting for answers to emails I never saw.
While I was freaking out, Peter tried Yahoo’s on-line help, a perfectly logical thing to do that I hadn’t considered. Yahoo opened a “case” for me. Needless to say, when nothing had happened by the time I went to bed, I didn’t sleep well.
Out of bed at dawn, I checked my computer. My inbox was completely restored. So was I.
