Email Frustration

I had an email crash on Monday and lost all my saved messages. Recovery efforts have not been successful, so if you are expecting a response from me, please resend your message.

I’m trying to look on the bright side and see this as a fresh start in getting to Inbox 0, but it’s not easy. It’s not just that I lost messages I wanted to act on going back a year, it’s that I’m not even sure what I lost. (Who knows everything that’s in their inbox right now?)

    What program were you using? Depending what it was, you may still be able to salvage some of it. Or start using a new, better program.

    I use Thunderbird which saves all your emails individually instead of in a giant single file like Outlook does. I’ve had WAY fewer crashes in it than in Outlook, and when I’ve had, it’s always recovered my emails.

    The same thing has happened to me. After losing some valuable emails, I figured it was easier to put the burden on Google. Then they are responsible for backing up the data. Plus I can get my email from anywhere I go.
