Them email blues

So I have Comcast email. Technically I have others, including Yahoo and Gmail, but I don't use them; it's just been easier to have all my redirect addresses (such as Livejournal, Dreamwidth, and my college account) forward to my ISP. And I'm lazy.

It has its problems, such as Comcast insisting that most LJ forwards are spam and quarantining them, even though I've put the forwarder's address in my address book the way THEY SAY TO. (That's at least better than the period when they ignored LJ email redirects with no notice whatsoever, meaning I lost unknown numbers of private email messages.)

But now my outbound messages aren't actually arriving. I would think it's the fault of the recipient's ISP, but if I forward the same message to my Gmail account and it doesn't come through there, either? Yeah, that's a bad sign.

I don't wanna switch my primary email, dammit. I don't love Comcast's interface, but I'm used to it, and I find it slightly easier to navigate than Gmail. (And I certainly don't want to have to check multiple email accounts actively.) But when I actively can't trust my email provider, there's very little reason to stay with them, either. Ugh.

In related news, if you think I'm ignoring you because I haven't answered an email you sent or because an email you've expected me to send hasn't come, try poking me via an LJ or DW comment or PM. Those seem to be coming through (for now, even if most of the LJ ones still get quarantined), and I double-check directly at those sites occasionally as well.

Feh.
