Annoying email issue

I can't seem to receive email at my sarah [at] sbahns.com address for some reason. My other email addresses work fine.

I noticed I was getting a bunch of bounce spam to that address the other day, but now I don't seem to be getting anything. Is this just some overzealous spam filtering on Gmail's part? I have this address going through Google Apps for my domain. So...WTF?? I've been baffled by the absence of email here over the last couple of days. I hope I don't miss anything important. Will this resolve itself? I hope so because I have no idea what to do about it.

UPDATE: ok, it suddenly resolved itself. In other news I have a crapload of Mail Delivery failure notices indicating my sbahns.com email address has been hijacked by a zombie spambot or something. Ok, so which one of you guys out there has a compromised PC with my address in your address book that is spamming everyone?

Obamaountineer

I am sure it is of no surprise to anyone that WV is pretty torn between the two democratic candidates. I personally think if Obama spends a LOT more time here between now and Tues. he'll win it - but even if he doesn't win this state in the primary, he'll need to make sure to come here a bunch. Al Gore didn't, but W did and look which way it went. West Virginians are much more favorable to whatever candidate shows up and talks to us. If you aren't going to come and at least look like you think we're important, we won't give you the time of day.

My vote is for Obama, but I hope he know he has to do some legwork here to let people know he's 1. not a muslim, 2. and is genuine. Sometimes people just gotta look you over and hear you in person.

Anyway - this article int he USA Today sounds pretty accurate: Mountain State's an uphill climb for Obama
