Even in the days of social networks, e-mail addresses have been the main method of people sending messages over the Internet as it works much like the common postage system that most countries has. I do not need to explain e-mails to you but much like an address, e-mails too can change and when they do, people can lose contact.
You might wonder why the hell I am even saying this or may simply not care but as you may know the original URL of Tweaked for your Pleasure used to run on a CJB.NET sub domain (snat.cjb.net) and I used to run my personal e-mails from that domain. Well the other day I was on the CJB.NET website and re-registered a sub-domain I used to "own" which still get loads of link back. Well after register the sub domain again, I decided to have a quick look at CJB.NET settings for snat.cjb.net to make sure the redirect to Snat.co.uk was still working.
Well after looking at it I discovered that snat.cjb.net MX records was still pointing to a mail server that I still had access too (thanks The Hosting for never actually deleting my mailing account even though you closed down, ran away and scammed your clients) and that the mail accounts was still alive. So I decide to load my former CJB.NET shell account and not setting up my e-mail account in Evolution Mail as CJB.NET shell still had all the passwords setup and I could not remember them for the life of me.
Either way, I loaded up my former mail client and after waiting a bit, I found I had around 2500 new e-mails with people wondering why I am no longer replying to e-mails and a lot of other e-mails from the likes of OpenDNS, GoDaddy and other places I never bothered changing my e-mail.
There is not really a point to this article other than if you change your e-mail, at least tell people about it because lately a lot of people have changed their e-mail whom I know and very few have actually bothered to tell me what it is so I could update my records and then wonder why they never get any e-mails.
On a side note I have seen more and more people spamming their URL in the website box and then slightly "followed" the topic at hand in the comments. I would recommend you to read this again before you do – Comment Guide Lines.
