Will Microsoft Kill Free Email on the Net?Spam has been such a problem that email filters arenow widespread on the Net. These filters are a necessaryresponse to the menace of spam. However, will the excuse of spam be used by companies such as Hotmailto charge for email?Disturbing news that Hotmail (owned by Microsoft) isblocking perfectly legitimate emails because they have been caught by their anti-spam filters is increasing thesefears.Allan Gardyne of Associateprograms.com has beencommenting recently about the difficulties SiteSell(owner of the website building package SiteBuildIt)has had with Hotmail.http://associateprograms.com/discus/viewtopic.php?t=2847When SiteSell complained to Hotmail they did not get a helpful response. Microsoft suggested that they use the services of a company called Bonded Sender which wouldensure that SiteSell's legitimate non-spam emails wouldreach their customers. It just happens that one of the ownersof Bonded Sender is a former employee of Microsoft!Many other companies have had similar problems with Hotmail. Bill Gates is on record as wishing to charge foremail as a method of preventing spam.

The founding fathers of the Internet had a publicservice attitude to the free dissemination of information.If the big companies charge for email, this egalitarian idealwill be lost.The most appealing aspect of the Internet for many peoplewas precisely this level-playing field that it created. Thehobbyist in any part of the world could communicate andpass information (through email!) to other enthusiasts.The small entrepreneur could set up a website and makemoney without reference to the multinationals.However, this freedom will be lost if customers are notvigilant. The big companies like Microsoft are businessesconcerned with profit. The freedom of access that theInternet gives to the small person in any part of the worldis not a priority of the multinationals.© John Lynch 2004****************************************************** For Free Internet marketing E-books on Net Writing, Web Mastering, Net Auctions, Affiliate help go to: http://www.merchant-account-service.com/free_courses_online.htm**********
