"Nothing. You're screwed."

During their Freedom Hosting investigation and malware attack last year, the FBI unintentionally obtained the entire e-mail database of popular anonymous webmail service Tor Mail. And now, they've used it in an unrelated investigation to bust a Florida man accused of stealing credit card numbers. [more inside]

Per SMTP spec, valid email addresses cannot contain a colon

I promise there is nothing gaping here: goatse.cx is now accepting pre-registration signups for a webmail service. Who wants an address at one of the web's most prestigious and notable domain names?

Goodbye, Hotmail

Bored of Gmail? Why don't you try Outlook?

This is alpha, baby!

Slawesome calls itself "e-mail for your voice" - it's a new web-based service which combines elements of audio blogging and webmail. Messages can be private or public - at least one bleeding-edge blogger is already using it to make voice posts. And it's been built using Ruby on Rails - so it's got to be good, right?

Microsoft Mail

Microsoft Mail is designed to replace Hotmail - and looks a lot like "Outlook Online". It will have to compete with Gmail's simplicity and Yahoo's (beta) functionality. Are desktop clients doomed?

Yahoo vs. Gmail

Yahoo feels the heat. Yahoo webmail users logged in this morning to find that they suddenly have mailboxes with 100MB capacity, can send emails up to 5MB in size, and have a much nicer-looking interface.

Behold Oddpost!

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! Mail is like comparing a Frank Lloyd Wright house to a birdcage made of Tinkertoys. All DHTML, so it requires IE 5+ on Windows. Netscape, Opera, Mac, and Linux users are out of luck. (Welcome to the effects of market share.)

First off, let me say that I love the Simpsons

First off, let me say that I love the Simpsons more than any other TV show I've ever seen. I've been enjoying their new site since they relaunched it last week, taking the quizzes (best score so far an 8 out of 10), checking out the anniversary stuff, and even coveting some stuff in the store. I notice they're giving away @simpsons.com email, but it requires you to setup a free dialup account with 1stup. I'm on a cable line and don't have a modem, so I guess I don't get a free email account, but what disturbs me about the free simpsons ISP account is the ad interface. It features a "health meter" to make sure you're clicking enough ads to please the ISP, sort of turning annoying web ads into tamagotchis. Isn't looking at ads enough? Since when should you force users to click on ads just to continue their use of the product? Let's hope this isn't a trend that will spread.
