    notice the date, april 1.. everyone thought this was an April fools joke at first.





    yeah, its pretty cool. wonder how they'll handle all the warez couriers trying to use it for easily accessible dump sites.. limiting file attachment sizes, i guess?

    No POP3 access yet.

    I'm with ya B. I fucking hate hotmail. What's even worse is that :cough: Outlook Express :cough: is connected to Microsoft who also owns hotmail. So, if you want to use outlook and hotmail at the same time it categorizes the mail differently.

    I use Incredimail, cuz I hate that shite. :)

    But it hasn't started yet... get your head out of the clouds... IF this happens, it's going to be a while before all the bugs are worked out and the userbase is going to be smallish for some time, I'll bet.
