This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

If a user told you they could only send emails to people that lived within 500 miles, and emails to people who lived further away
got rejected, you'd probably think they were crazy.

Not so, amazingly. www.ibiblio.org/harris/500milemail.html?

Sorry, no knob jokes - it's more interesting than funny.

fantastic. I love stuff like that. I can just imagine what goes through the support guys head when someone tells them about the problem. My first thought was TTL or DNS issues, not SMTP timeouts. Genius.

I guessed TTL too
Very interesting read, thanks!

that was actually a rather interesting read
I enjoyed that, damn I'm getting too geeky.
