From now on, I’m moving to a gmail account, as opposed to my former Hotmail account. It’s not that I am a big e-mail user and there’s some kind of advanced functionality Gmail offers, or that there’s too much junk mail. No, this is because of Microsoft’s stupidity.
I cannot open that attachment. It’s there, but Microsoft won’t allow it. Sorry, but that simply means I can no longer use your service, either.
Of course, it doesn’t end there.
I can’t even forward my email because apparently I can only forward it to another hotmail account. What’s the point of that?
But as someone who’s not so inept as to need Microsoft to parse my e-mails for me, I can also find out how to forward my mail whether they like it or not.
All you need is a POP web-mail service, such as IzyMail and you can have IzyMail read your e-mail and forward it. A middle-man, if you will. Oh, and it forwarded the attachment.
