I am testing GMail (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I have to say it is (as reported) worlds better than any other major webmail service, and comfortably better than my Princeton account. On the privacy issues. 1) Spam-filters already 'read' our e-mail; the objections come because GMail is corporately-motivated ('must sell Viagra ads'), not individually-motivated ('must repulse Viagra ads'). But privacy is compromised in the same way, either way. Why worry how? 2) It is yet possible that the ECPA may be interpreted as protecting this vulnerable sort of e-mail under 'reasonable expectation of privacy,' which would be good.
I will delete my Hotmail account as soon as I discover how. Refer all future SPAM to email@example.com.
Also, I've switched to Firefox. *That* is a browser.
[I see Peter has already blogged on GMail.]
