Followers of the blog will know I’ve recently migrated the website to AWS. Yesterday I bit the bullet and cancelled my dedicated server.
As part of that process I had to move my email account from that service too. I always pull all my emails into Gmail, so there is no point paying for something cool. A little POP account is fine.
I started the process yesterday afternoon/evening, thinking it would be a quick drop on the old service and recreate on the new one. Unfortunately the old service held on to the domain reference overnight, so it was a quiet evening on the email front. 🙂
This morning I was able to create the new account, do a little DNS tinkering and it all seems fine. Because of DNS propagation times, it’s possible I’ll lose some emails for the next 24 hours or so, but the spam has already started flying in, so word must have got around. 🙂
If you emailed something (you think) was important to me since last night and I’ve not responded, there’s a good chance I’ve not got it.
I’m hoping this marks the end of the disruption…
