I love their DSL, but they've hosed my e-mail account!

I'm rapidly losing my patience with BellSouth.

I've had my e-mail address, for seven years. I've corresponded with literally thousands of people from that address; I've gone through a lot with it.

First of this past week, in their infinite wisdom, some rocket scientist at BellSouth decided to yank the address without saying anything.

Seems that when I got my DSL put in, the tech was not on straight with me regarding my old address; I asked if I could retain the old address. They said yes.

Mind you, this was a year ago.

So this week, a year to the week, mind you, someone, cleaning up house, figured out that this old address was hanging out there. So they yanked it. (or so it seems from what I've been able to piece together)

They claim that it'll be back up and running later today, though I'm still skeptical.

Anyhow, in the meantime, if you want to get to me, use my Google-Mail account at
