When to follow up about following up?

I met an old classmate at a party recently and would like to reconnect. I emailed her about asking her to hang, but I've gotten no response. What next? Social anxiety-colored snowflakes abound. [more inside]

Colorblindness Coping: Colorblindness & Windows 7

The nut of the question/problem is this: When I use high-contrast mode in Windows 7, people are receiving emails from me where the text is blank. Is this because windows 7 changes the font to white for me to see it, and then emails that same font to users who have white backgrounds? How can I fix this? I really don't want to ask for special software accommodation at work. I'm private and would really rather just fix it on my own and move on. Snowflakes abound inside. [more inside]

Can't determine if this is a fraudulent email or not...

I received an email at ~4:30 PM (EST) from a @ucia.gov email account. It was in regards to a scholarship program from the CIA to which I had applied, stating that they had liked my online application, and wanted to learn more about me. The problem is that I can't determine, given what I'm looking at, whether it's fraudulent or not. [more inside]

I'm dating-challenged and dropped the ball. How I do pick it back up?

Over last weekend I spent a whole bunch of time with a lovely woman--dinners, picnics, walks, wine under the stars etc. These weren't explicitly dates, but it all seemed pretty romantic. At the end of the evening on Saturday and Sunday we had these awkward pauses when my insecurities and my desire to--give a goodnight kiss? Express my attraction? Or something--were warring. I don't know what she was thinking but it was awkward on both sides. Now I won't see her for a month. Do I email her and explicitly say that I'm interested? [more inside]

Virtual Bullproofing my Life

I'm interested in asserting a lot more control of my personal information and communications to prevent prying eyes of both governmental and criminal types. I'm interested in general best practices to secure my personal information, passwords, data and communication (including phones, texting and email). I am not an expert in software or anything of the kind. I use an iPhone and Apple computers. There's a few more specific requests inside. [more inside]

Did my email get hacked? What to do now?

I think my old email just got hacked. I received some spam, from my old email address itself, (and the "From" part had my name and email, even though I didn't send it, as the spammer did) and about a dozen "unable to deliver" messages from my old email's "mailer daemon" (this is on yahoo). In those messages and the email that was successfully delivered to me on the old email and my newer accounts, it lists countless numbers of other people and contacts, including high school teachers, bosses, family, friends, potential employers, and even friends of exes. Most of these people aren't even in my contacts list, but I still have emails from them/to them (this is an old but relatively recent email that I've kept for nostalgic reasons). I am mortified that all of these people, none of whom I've spoken to recently in at least the past couple of years (and in some cases, longer), got this spam from "me" out of the blue. Should I delete this email address, in case it may be compromised by a hacker? Should I email these people to apologize, even though we no longer are in touch? I have already changed the password and don't know what to do. Any help would be so appreciated. [more inside]

How/whether to be a rat

How to abbreviate multiple degrees

What is the best practice for listing two degrees after a name in an email signature, when the degrees weren't earned as a joint degree? For example, if the degrees are JD and MPA, should it be JD/MPA, JD+MPA, or some other combination? Maybe just a comma between them? JD/MPA would be the obvious choice for a joint degree, but these are from different universities and earned at different times. [more inside]

If I setup an MTA to merely forward incoming email without attempting to filter spam will my MTA be 'blacklisted' along with the server at the spam's origin?

I manage over 150 (and growing) domains. I would like to provide email addresses to users at those domains. Rather than provide Pop/IMAP access, I would prefer to forward email to the users' Yahoo/Gmail/etc email addresses. If I setup an MTA to merely forward incoming email without attempting to filter spam will my MTA be 'blacklisted' along with the server at the spam's origin?
