Aw, crap

I lost all of my saved incoming mail on for my primary AOL screen name from the time I started using AOL through last Monday.

I'm not sure what happened. All of my sent mail is still there, so it wasn't an overall failure of the Filing Cabinet function that saves the e-mail on my system. The saved incoming mail is still there for other screen names, too, so it definitely wasn't a general failure. Also, the "organize" and "backup" files for this screen name are still about the same size as the saved copies from one and two months ago. This leads me to believe that maybe the mail is still there, just not currently visible.

I'll probably contact AOL and see if they can help me with this. It's not a huge disaster, in the grand scheme of things, and certainly not as bad as, say, losing everybody's addresses. Still, it's a little sad to think that everything anyone has ever sent to databoyecho has just poofed out of existence.

Gosh, just get a better ISP, they don't come worse than AOL. There's plenty cheaper too.
