Got this message, now ... [at least ... (we know now)] -- LaLa Land is found

Ever have an e-mail just disappear? The "To" person never got it. There is nothing in your sent box. It might have gone to Lala Land.
. .

That is the Funny Farm for missing computer stuff. Like "All the Gold is in Beverley Hills," "Many Missing Messages (MMM) are in Lala Land [Yahoo here]."

. . Just when I tried to send an e-mail I got this message on my screen. I determined that my message wasn't sent:

"Scheduled Maintenance

We are undertaking some essential, but extensive maintenance to improve Yahoo! Mail. During the maintenance period, some users may experience problems accessing Yahoo! Mail.We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Your account is in great shape and we are working to have it available again as quickly as possible.

Yahoo! Mail Team"

Not really a problem because: [THESE WORK GOOD WITH WRITING BLOGS TOO]
1. I always do a 'Control C' copy before I send. If the message is long I do it several times. Then if Yahoo acts up I can paste into a new shell and send again.
2. Sometimes my message 'goes away.' Welcome to Lala Land. Again not a problem:
a. I've don't the trusty old 'Control C' copy and can paste a my message in a new shell.
b. I don't put the addresses in until I am ready to send. Especially where the message is long and I might not have saved things properly. At least this way a part message won't be going out.
c. When I put the addresses in I always put my own address into the "Bcc:" position. That way I can assume that if I got it then it is likely so should the recipients.
3. Here, this time, it was Yahoo acting up. All of the above worked good. Nothing was lost except the first cut of my message. Where did it go? Into Lala Land.
