Someone doesn't like Hotmail very much and has decided to offer a cruder alternative. Not safe for working really. Contains strong language.
Behold Oddpost! Like they say, it really is "indubitably the most astounding web-based email application on earth." I was skeptical, but their drag-and-drop interface is so clean and functional that comparing it to Microsoft Hotmail or Yahoo!

(Welcome to the effects of market share.)
Hotmail Hacked Now everyone can gain access to your e-mail for Viagra orders, penis enlargements, and diploma purchases. Giddie up! (via penismighter)
Do you use Hotmail for email? If so, it looks like Microsoft owns all your messages and can reprint or repurpose them however they like. I'd assume the ToS could be extended to cover any content on a passport-using website as well. Scary stuff, considering all the Hailstorm services on the way...
