I am sure it can filter out whatever it wants. I mean, I doubt there is a law REQUIRING an Email Service provider to deliver all mail. Perhaps it just has a built in SPAM filter, and Google happens to be a buzz word on it!

Well, currently Hotmail is down so I hope that it's doing major upgrades to its site.

I also just realised that when I got my upgraded mailbox, there are about ten mails that I KNOW I deleted in my box. Werent there a few days ago, but now are back in the box.

What Google's done is genius. I know it's just an e-mail account, but based on the fact that I can't get it...I want one dammit!

They've simultaneously created their own demand, and forced competitors to react. All before they "officially" release it.

On a side note, I now know what CRZ's Orkut comment in DEAN's Smackdown thread was about...

I was like that, to a point. People tend to want things they can't get at the moment. Tickle Me Elmo and Tomigotchi ring a bell?

I'm still feeling funny about the ad scanning they're planning. What if my research paper for my summer class turns out to be about child porn and I use the GMail to message Prof. Arnold and then I become the target of an investigation because I mentioned child porn. I shudder to think what kind of ad they will deliver by scanning 'child porn'.

Has anyone else noticed a definite change in the spam that they've been getting since Yahoo!'s mail changed? I'm not necessarily getting fewer spam mails, but I'm getting a lot of very similar ones, with the FROM field being stuff like "YOUR DOCTOR" or "VERY IMPORTANT" and whatnot. I never got anything like that before, it was all the same old "En.large/your.slef**NOWWW*" junk. Did they say anything about messing with the spam filters, or is this just a weird coincidence?

I'm getting more spam, but I don't necessarily pay too much mind to it. I just scan the bulk folder to ensure that nothing important got snagged and then I just dump it.

If it has anything to do with spam, I get it in (I believe it's listed here) my main email account. Don't think I've gotten a lot of those, but I get a lot of "System Administrator" ones and such, posing as someone saying I have spyware or viruses (which we all know is bullSHITE). SpamBayes quietly sends them packing.

A friend told me about this Indian provider that also offers 1G on their free accounts, and you don't need to wait for an invite! On the minus side, you don't get a cool .co.in address, but on the PLUS side, you can use eleven different Indian languages! ;-)
