I hate junk mail regardless of whether I get it via an email or through the paper mail that arrives at my house each day. What's bothered me for a long time is how efficient email filters have gotten at being able to filter out the spam/junk mail before it hits my Inbox, but that same luxury doesn't apply to the mail that I get at my house.

The idea of Map Envelope is simple, really. Locate a position on the map (preferably a location that might make the person on the receiving end green with envy), type a message, and wait for your custom Google Maps image to appear. Print, cut, fold on the dotted lines, glue/tape, and bam!, you’ve got your own custom made map envelope.
Are you addicted to Twitter, but afraid to use it while you're at work? We've got the cure for your addiction! Well, not really a cure... I guess it would be more like throwing fuel on the fire. What if I said there's a way for you to post on Twitter directly from your Outlook Inbox? Not only that but you'll also be able to read posts from the people you're following? Sounds great, right?
I've been waiting a long time for someone to come up with a way to get push notifications on my iPhone for my Gmail accounts, but up until today there wasn't really anything available. Thanks to an iPhone app called Prowl I'm now receiving nearly instantaneous push notifications on my phone.
Did you need another new email address? We didn't think so, but you may be still interested to know that Yahoo has decided to add two new domains to their mail service. Today around 12:00 PM (Pacific), they will introduce Ymail and reintroduce RocketMail as new domains their users can use to register for new email accounts.
Now that I'm up and running on my Mac I decided to give the Apple Mail program a shot. It's the built-in email solution that is bundled with Mac OS X, and also lets you do things like leave notes to yourself or manage a todo list. One thing that I quickly noticed was that it doesn't directly include support for HTML signatures.
For one reason or another many email applications don't provide an easy way to backup all of your data. To me it seems like a no brainer to offer such a feature especially for online email services where you have a minimal amount of control over how you can export your data.
It seems like I've been getting an unusually large number of phishing emails lately, and I've began wondering whether everyone realizes how they can report phishing emails with their email provider. This article will highlight what phishing is, and why/how to properly report it.
I'm not sure if you should be getting your hopes up quite yet, but rumors have started to circulate around the Internet that Microsoft will be opening up the @live.com email addresses tomorrow for public registration. There is no official word from Microsoft that this will be happening, but the timing sounds about right.
Last week Gmail launched free IMAP support, which was one of the most user-requested features. We were fortunate and got the IMAP access to show up in our account simply by logging out and logging back in, but some of my friends are still sitting around waiting for it to show up in their accounts.
It looks like Microsoft is pulling a Google and offering their most popular apps in a unified package. Well, it's not exactly like the Google Pack because Microsoft is only including their own homegrown programs, whereas Google also includes some third-party software (such as Norton and Skype).
I learned a new term over the weekend, and it’s called Bacn! What is Bacn? No, it’s not the delectable bacon that you eat for breakfast, instead it’s the new term for emails that are a cross between spam and personal mail. Here’s a message regarding Bacn from the people who coined the new word:
Just last week we wrote about a service Yahoo! provides that lets you bring your existing emails, contacts, and calendar from your existing email account. The only problem, as my brother pointed out when using it, is that you could get locked out of your Gmail account temporarily because of the heavy access:
Yahoo has announced the launch of an “all-new Yahoo! Mail” that has quite the list of new features including chat capabilities right inside Yahoo Mail, and the option to send and/or receive text messages. Many of you have been trying out some of the new features since the public beta launched back in September of 2006.
There have been plenty of occasions where I have been left wondering if I had lost everything in my Gmail account. If you don’t know about any of those situations that I’m talking about, just view all of the past occurrences that we have written about. People have lost every email in their account numerous times, and how do you know that you’re not going to be next?
