It’s always good to be a pioneer, especially if it’s something to do with both politics and technology. So on Friday 7th April I rushed to register the domain jonworth.eu, and by Sunday 9th April everything was up and running – domain name directing to blog and website, POP3 mailboxes, webmail, the whole lot. I know plenty of EU politics geeks but none that have managed all of that yet! 🙂
But there’s a problem, and it’s a problem that I cannot start to fix myself. Any e-mails I send from a jonworth.eu e-mail address end up in recipients’ spam folders! I think it’s because .eu is not listed in spam check systems as being reputable, or indeed might not be listed at all. So for the automated spam checks it’s as if I am a spammer living in some unknown place, hence the e-mails end up in a spam folder.
