Email Abuse

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Yes, this is a rant. I've become totally disgusted with people who continue to use these 'so-called' free email accounts (ie Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.).

I say 'so-called' because there is a cost associated with lost mail and the spam and virii that these accounts harvest. I have never used them and strongly discourage others from doing the same.

Generally, these people never take the time to filter or monitor there insanely small inboxes. As a result, if you send them a few lines of text, it will certainly bounce.

Well, there is a solution to this nuisance. I'm not sure if these guys are similar to Google's gmail, in that using their service, obligates the user to become a unsuspecting marketing participant. Nonetheless, it's worth investigating.
