I was waiting for Francine to cut my hair this afternoon when I got an email. I tried answering it on my phone only to have my message ‘rejected!’ Uh oh.
I quickly dug deeper and found about a half dozen emails–basically anything I’d sent using my phone (AT&T version of the Samsung Blackjack) since late last month had not been accepted by Gmail’s server. The error message is so brief and comes delayed after you attempt to send so it’s easy to miss.
Somehow the configuration the phone sends to Gmail changed. Not by me. Who knows how this stuff happens?
