I had a successful order about 3 weeks ago. Make sure you order through their web process - I've had no problems with straight up orders.

From their website :

Because of the big volume of Spam E-Mails we receive everyday, we had to install E-Mail Spam filters on our server. When sending an E-Mail to Best, Please put the word "Atari", Atari item or Atari part number, Atari Question or Atari Sales inquiry in the Subject line. E-Mails with the typical Spam subject matter like: Urgent, Must read, Regarding, FWD, HTML Code, Blank subject line (RE:) or other SPAM E-Mail Subject lines you receive, will be automatically deleted on our E-Mail Server and never reach us.

After sending your E-Mail to us, if you do not hear back from us within a day or less, please resend your E-Mail inquiry with a different Subject matter information or from a different E-Mail address. We do 100% respond to every Atari E-Mail we receive. But sometimes Spam Filters on your Internet Service Provider or your own personal E-Mail Spam software filter you have installed may delete or send our return Atari E-Mail to your Trash can.

I think I've tried all of the options mentioned above. :) The only remaining options is to let someone else write on my behalf from his account. :D

Anyway, running business with that kind of restrictions can mean only one thing... you have a monopoly in your industry. :)

P.S. Just to be clear, I'd had a semi-regular contact with him, from my gmail account, typing in html, doing REs etc and everything was OK. And then suddenly he stopped responding. Tried numerous follow ups, different domain, plain text, Atari in subject... nope.

I kind of wonder if there are some issues with gmail. I never use it myself, but I've been trying to contact a guy through gmail for months now to get something I ordered from him, and he just stopped responding to me, but he responds to others just fine. Though to be fair, I DID try one of my other email accounts, but still no response.

What is their web process? I thought it was simply sending an e-mail with part numbers.
