    One reason my g-mail address is my emergency back-up address that I
    use only when there is no other choice is that it forces me to use
    IMAP instead of POP, and I've never been happy with IMAP.

    I didn't realize *how* unhappy I am with it until tonight.

    There is one mailing list that I signed up for in the interregnum
    between Comcast and Centurylink, and never got around to moving to a
    good address. It is also a mailing list that I seldom get around to

    Our internet is down tonight, and I've gone brain-dead on cleaning up
    old files and getting them ready to publish, so I decided I'd read
    some of my back mail before going to bed.

    Not a single one of the messages that I *thought* I had downloaded is
    actually on my computer, including messages that had been on the
    computer long enough for me to read them.


    Got reminded of another grumble when I got up to turn off the light my
    spouse, who is already in bed, had just finished using. Alexa can't
    turn off a lamp that is right next to her on the shelf without going
    through the Internet.
