Bah, Humbug

No, this isn't an anti-Valentine's Day rant. Though I really do need to clean up and go eat something, and I'll have to deal with the crowds of people that only go out 4 times a year.

Even Denny's will probably be packed. Now that's sad.

No, I'm upset because of the amount I don't get about hosting. I suspect it has more to do with individual local setup than anything else, but it seems to me that if an ISP provides on-site Unix-based email, and one purchases a domain name through the same ISP, that mail to that domain should work, yes? Well, apparently, no, I can get web access just fine - but the email doesn't function. Well, OK, it recognizes its own existence while bouncing everything back, which I suppose is one step in the right direction.

On top of that, if one can access one's email server through the new domainname quite successfully, except for irritating SSL name mismatch errors, one would think that buying and installing an SSL certificate for the new domain would work for Thunderbird access too, no? No. The certificate only works for the e-commerce site I wasn't going to build in the near future.

Sorry, just felt like ranting. I'm sure there's several things I'm missing, especially since I've never studied the whole SSL thing too closely.

Hopefully their tech support will get around to mailing me back sometime.
