Caution: this blog post is not for the faint-hearted. It will take you on a journey through the darkest depths of despair and anxiety. But fear not, there is a happy ending. So come with us, gentle reader, on a tale of thrilling adventure sure to set your hair on end.

There you are, sitting at your desk (or on a train, or a bus) catching up on your email, making plans, following up with friends and colleagues. This is good. This is going great. Except...

You've lost your email.

Your heart sinks, your palms sweat.

You double-check. Definitely gone. Not all of it: some folders are still there. But mail is definitely... gone.

You check that your internet service provider isn't offline. You check that your internet is working. You check your mail on your phone and tablet.

Everything else is fine, but mail is missing. MISSING!

Do you use FastMail on the web?
