According to the german news site heise.de Microsoft announced to mark all e-mails sent to hotmail or MSN accounts that don’t have a Sender-ID as potential SPAM starting with this november. Given the controverial nature of the Sender-ID system this step is a really stupid way of forcing a not-wanted system onto everyone.
Also think about following support request for the administrator of forum xyz:
- I didn't receive any activation mail :-( At least I can't find it in my hotmail inbox.
- Have you also checked your SPAM folder?
- No, why should I do this?
- Because MS had the stupid idea to force a not widely accepted system on all its customers.
I’m not really a Google or GMX fan, but: If you need a free mailing service, why not use gmail or gmx? Far less problems :-)
