DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Amy=== Dear Webby Almost all of my friends and all my clients claim that they are not getting my mail. When I send a test mail to myself, it works OK. What am doing wrong? Amy Dear Amy You are using a email. Because Yahoo refuses to do anything effective to slow down the spam coming from there, all the big blacklists have them blacklisted. Most of the anti-spam programs USE those blacklists to pre-clean people's mails. Your mail gets trashed, unread. I only saw your mail because I was checking mail on the server at that moment. As soon as you get a legitimate address, your mail will get through again. If you don't have a computer at home and just use the one at school or work, you can use any decent web mail. Many ISP's offer it to their clients at no extra charge, and for $2 - $5 to people who are not dial-up or hosting clients. We too offer web mail. We have a commercial grade version of web mail that lets you check your mail with the same 128 bit encryption that is used in a good shopping cart, and without any ads or rigamarole. It's called webby-mail. You can read about it at Have FUN DearWebby
