My emails have been getting marked as spam for years by Gmail, and today I got my first actual mailer daemon rejection notice.

I think it's because someone has recently been spoofing my email address and sending spam to the contacts in my old Yahoo! Mail address book. (Down with Yahoo!!)

And seeing as how almost everyone in the US is using Gmail (down with Google! lol), I might have to give up using my cool alias :(


I guess I shouldn't be using the alias for communication anyway, since it is so difficult (impossible?) for mail servers to tell if an email alias is being used honestly.

I guess I can still use it to sign up for things online, so it will be easier if I ever need to migrate to a different email provider.
