Unless you're an email address hoarder (like me), there's a good chance there are email addresses and accounts that you've not used for several years. They've probably been shut down by the provider, it's been so long.
But have they, really?
Either way, there may be an email address out there that is or was yours. Should you be concerned?
Probably not, but there are some things you may want to check. This weeks featured article, Should I Worry About Old Lost Email Accounts? covers what you need to consider.
Also this week:

- No Start? No Taskbar? No problem! (Probably)

Gary had a snow day, so we took the week off.
Happy Spring in the north and Fall in the south!
