Hey, Sorry that i didn’t post yesterday i was really busy with downloading things for my computer and things.

So anyway as promised today i will be talking about Yahoo! the 2nd e-mail platform that i am testing.

Now i must say that the sign-up process is one of the hardest things i have ever encountered on the internet to do. The set-up takes forever and even after filling out each and everyone of the details ,which to be honest are slightly revealing of your identity whatever happened to data protection and all that, you are then asked to give a security code which i really don’t understand the point in. Even when you type in the code correctly it still says that you have got it wrong. This outraged me quite a bit and i entered it again just to find that the password i had put in had streched to about a mile long. Which i had to change about 20 times before Yahoo! finally set up my account. At this point it took me to a sign up screen from here on i had more problems. I put in the CORRECT details. My password and username and then it had the cheek to say that there was no email account of that name. By the time i had finally accessed the account i had created about 30 emails. When i got in i gave in and went back to my other “easier to set-up emails”.

Google is still on top guys. Thanks, Tomorrow will be Windows Live Mail. 🙂



Why buy a TLD? by Scott Campbell

One of the many things I find really annoying is electrical/plumbing/joinery companies using free email accounts like Hotmail, gMail and worst of all, AOL.

I think that a free email address gives off a kind of weconyou@aol.com kind of sense, whereas info@jmfelectronics.com sounds much nicer and more professional than it’s free alternative.

Remember, however, that if you do buy a domain, always make a website, don’t just use it for email.

And for goodness sake, if you can’t afford one or don’t know how to make a website, shoot me an email…
