Read the article because the subject is misleading. Hotmail is bouncing gmail invites, not regular e-mails...

Even then, from what I hear, isn't always true. :rolleyes:

Sounds like a form of censorship to me. Also, I agree with Trowaman that this is proof of MS manipulating the system for their benefit. Where is the ball-less DOJ? :mad:

Why do people using Hotmail, G-mail, Yahoo.... just because they are free? you get free email from all ISPs anyways, and most have web access.

I would think you would get a lot of spam, and lack of privacy from those, especially G-mail.

I've never seen the point.

1)It's nice to have a permanent email account, i.e. not dependant on changing ISPs
2)It's great for junk mail (i.e. forum registrations etc.) when I don't want to give out my personal email.

Gotcha On the spam.

As for the email thing, I own my own domain, its not free but I really can have the same email addy for my whole life, for 8 bucks a year or less.

My gmail invite was sent to my hotmail account and it worked. I also tried sending myself and email from my Gmail to Hotmail and that also worked.

I sent a few to hotmail, and they werent lost, they just took a while to get there, sometimes it ends up in the junk email box.

This is how shallow hotmail is eh?

[b]Hotmail blocks all emails coming from Gmail

So, instead of "Hotmail blocks all emails coming from Gmail" it should be "Hotmail fails to deliver some Gmail invites". Grrrr, I hate those reality distortionists. Like "Saddam was a threat to the US" and the whole WoMD thing. You can't believe anything you read.

The world is ruled by Machiavelli-s :mad:

Registering your own domain(s) is the way to go, at least for "serious" correspondence. I think providers are reluctant to make it easy for people to use 'em (especially with webmail, e.g. Gmail restricts you to @gmail.com addresses) so you're anchored to their service. Better reason to use smaller providers like FastMail, MailSnare, Runbox, et.al. where use virtual domain support is easier or even encouraged.
