The brilliant “Bug” Bob Allen e-mailed me right after I posted this plea for help. Within ten minutes everything was back to normal. Linda kindly posted this: From Yahoo help here in the US, Error code 475 is “This can happen if you’ve sent a lot of messages in a short period of time or you’ve sent one message to a large number of contacts and can result in your Yahoo Mail account temporarily being blocked from sending emails.”
Though that very likely explains everything I prefer to think that once Yahoo heard that Bob Allen was on the case it decided to start behaving properly 🙂 Thanks Bob and Linda. As of right now there is no need for additional help.
Heck, we’ve all gone to the dentist with a painful toothache only to have the pain stop completely once we get into the chair …
It is great to have so many friends to call upon when I am in need of help 🙂
Important firstname.lastname@example.org Notification
Please know that for the moment and likely at least until midday on Friday 10 FEB Japan time I am unable to successfully send e-mails. I write them and hit Send and they appear in the Sent Items folder, but within a minute or two I receive an e-mail from MAILER-DAEMON@yahoo.com with Failure Notice in the Subject Line. Here is the relevant info:

So if you wrote me yesterday and am wondering what happened to my usually speedy reply, please be patient. My gut feeling is that the problem is related to the wifi issue below.
Apple Mail or Wifi Help Needed
When I got in the room last night the first thing that I did was to get online; no shock there 🙂 But no luck getting to the Keio Plaza hotel wifi login page. I kept getting those seemingly bogus “Unsafe to connect; this site does not have the required security certificate” warnings. So I grabbed a room key and headed down to the lobby. I was about to ask for help but when I opened my laptop I was surprised to see that the Keio Plaza hotel wifie login page had loaded. I typed in the access code and password and all seemed fine.
Then came the MAILER-DAEMON e-mails detailed above.
I have no clue as to what to do and getting in touch with ATT is difficult enough to do from the US … Ever since ATT hooked up with Yahoo I — and surely lots of other folks — have encountered a slew of bothersome problems. I am hoping that when we get to the monkey park hotel all will be well. If it is, I will re-send all of the e-mails I have written so far.
If you think that you can offer specific help, please leave a comment.
Many tanks for reading this far:) artie
