Default Microsoft Burns Hotmail Users

Quote:
Microsoft Burns Hotmail Users with Sender ID
Which is more important to you? Being sure you're getting the emails you want? Or Microsoft taking the lead in the war on spam? (Yeah, it's a trick question.)

Well, Microsoft is inflicting its special brand of anti-spam strategy on Hotmail guinea pigs, I mean users, just because the service is free, so they can. It's a clichť that Robert Heinlein beat to death. But like most clichťs, it's true: There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
Read more about this if you use Hotmail.

I only use hotmail as my spam email now. I use it to sign up for sites that I think are questionable, or when I regester products and crap. I use gmail for all real internet business and my isp addy for personal or family stuff.

Doesnt everyone have at least 3 email addys these days?


hmm ... actually I have a forth that I forgot about ... my website address too. But that just dumps in to my gmail so I didnt really count it.

Hmm ... i use hotmail for my primary email service
I've never tried gmail but people here say that it has extremely good service
I didn't know that microsoft was using us, i always thought that we free email users were always getting the better deal, yet nothing in this world is for free is it.
