***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

email sucks

For a brief moment I considered switching back to Gmail. However earlier this week, that email service suffered from a worldwide outage and then had a phishing attack in Gtalk after that.

Screw Gmail.

I loaded up the Windows Live Mail client and set up Hotmail in it. I can't import any emails over 10MB in size. The "send as" function only works from within the web-based interface and not the client itself. You can't enable filters on the client side.

Works for me and I'm stickin' with it. You can take your Web 2.0 mail, its outages, phishing attacks, ads and other b.s. and shove it up your ass.
