|Mail delivery, as it once was|

I have had the same e-mail address, through a local company, for at least ten years. I would still have it if the company did not notify me last month that they were going out of business.
I had to scramble to get a new e-mail, change my e-mail information with different businesses (Amazon, PayPal, Ebay, etc.), and then try to find every business-related web page with my e-mail on it in order to update it.
Having the correct e-mail address on your web pages is particularly important when you have a mail order business that depends nearly 100% on the internet.
All of this has been a hassle, but I'm pretty much transitioned over (though I'm sure I've missed some changes on my web sites).
If you need to reach me, my new e-mail is: email@example.com. The old e-mail of firstname.lastname@example.org no longer works.
