Gmail as Spam Filter...and now, Disaster Recovery Tool

A couple of months ago, I began using Gmail as a spam filter. Today, I discovered another use for it: disaster recovery for email. (Well, at least on a personal level...)

I've used a Panix.com mail & shell account since 1995. Other than a few rare exceptions over the years, their uptime and availability are incredible.

Today is another one of those rare exceptions.

Panix mail is down. Normally, I would freak out over this but since I'm forwarding all of my mail to my Gmail account before it goes to Panix, I still have a method of accessing it.

Thanks, Google.

UPDATE: Looks like Panix is back up. Mail is starting to trickle into my desktop mail client.
