You’ve got mail… LOTS of it! April 1, 2006Posted by Matsu in Mac, Random, Technology.
This week I have been attending a conference in Grapevine, Texas. It's a few miles north of Dallas, so you might say I'm in Dallas, TX.
Even though I have Internet access in my hotel room and I have my laptop with me, I have been so busy I haven't had any time to really read my e-mail. Nor have I had time (nor energy) to post anything here. The first night I was up visiting with fellow I.T. managers (Gary and Scott) from other colleges and universities well past 2:00am – in fact, it was 3:00am before my head hit the pillow. The morning arrived much too quickly that night. Then, the second night I was out well past midnight trying to solve the world's problems (or at least our part of the world) with my colleagues (Gary, Scott, Dave and Henry).
Imagine my surprise when I went to synch my computer with the Exchange server to download new messages and discovered this…
Do you see it? "Received 2 of 2088190 headers…" Now, that's a lot of message headers to download. Not really trusting what I saw and not being one to think computers are always right, I stopped the synchronization and checked the message count. Then, I hit the message synch button, again.
This time, I felt a little better. I don't have 2,088,190 new messages. Instead, I have only 2,905 new (unread) messaages.
Now, is that good news or bad news? I don't know.
Next week I will be on vacation. So, I won't be reading all of my e-mail any time soon. I guess I'll have my work cut out for me when I get back to the office.
