Hello,

Can anyone here comment on how reliable email is? Recently I have been having an increasing number of cases of emails not being delivered to people. Anyone else know any facts or have any personal experiences to share?

Thanks!

Jeremiah

Extremely reliable (unless they get bounced back to you due to bad address or server problems). Your mail program might drop a mail due to a bug, but I´ve not yet had that.

Just don´t get any illusions about privacy, though. Don´t use an email for anything you wouldn´t write on a postcard...  Wink/being sarcastic

Hello,

Thanks, so I guess it is more reliable than I thought...... now who has been lying to me.

KROC, I presume you are joking cause I got no email from you!

you list your address as Hotmail. Many people block all Hotmail addresses because of the huge amount of chainletters and commercial email using the service (or faking Hotmail addresses).
In my spamfilters, over half are hotmail addresses. On my Hotmail account, 99.99% of incoming mail is spam, and 90% of that is from other hotmail accounts.

I can't imgaine using anything else than my POP3 account that my ISP provides me with. It's so sweet having your own "real" adress that u can use in outlook express instead of hotmail and all it's counterparts.
