Getting the following when attempting to email to Nitpick@JavaRanch.com
as of 04/14/08 at 3:58 PM EST
Let me know if I need to do something else, didn't see a complete resolution on the other posts, so must be intermittent?

Sorry to put a spoke in the wheel, I was able to send in an assignment this morning (04/15/08).

Hopefully some cowpoke was able to wrangle it free of that
cantankerous email server.

I received the exact same message but only when I tried to email from my hotmail account from work!

If I email from home it is fine. Maybe they log IPs or something.

Scratch that "from home its fine" remark I'm also blocked. Not really helpful when you've paid money to get assignments marked and you can't submit them.

It's not us, it's them - that is to say, they seem to block every single thing going into Marilyn's account.

The modus operandi has usually been that she contacts comcast, and it gets sorted out within a day or two. This time I think Marilyn is completely overrun, and hasn't had a chance to clear it.
