Those Who Can, Teach

Losing My Inbox

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.
