All the little messages about upgrading to the new "pay" service oover the last few months never really bothered me. The warnings that your account may be suspended, along with random message deletions if you went over your storage limit (which is inadvertant since you can't control what people send you) weren't that big a deal. But NOW, they've done it. I received an email today telling me that as of July 16, free-Hotmail users will no longer be able to retrieve POP mail. I don't like it. It's just one-step-at-a-time towards ensuring that every user either pays up, or pisses off. I don't like these tactics. At least treat your users with respect and announce that all services will revert to pay-only services, rather than cutting them of one at a time. Not-so-Hotmail!!!!! The next one to go will be messenger. Can anybody recommend any other free-webmail that is up to scratch?
