Sneaky Ads in Email Inbox

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google,Microsoft,Web     # , , ,     πŸ—¨ One Comment

There was a time, not so long ago, when a sizeable portion of online advertising was a slimy business. Websites had popups, pop-unders, hidden click layers, gateway pages, and many more tricks we have forgotten about. That’s a good thing that we can’t remember so many of those deceptive practices. It means the industry has — Continue reading Β»

From Sendmail To G Suite Gmail

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google     # , ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

In a previous post I covered updating my self-hosted Sendmail program to the newest version with some additions such as TLS 1.2 and DKIM. The version 8.15.2 at the time of my update was nearly five years old. Interestingly, less than two months after my update Sendmail released a new version 8.16.1 . Now it — Continue reading Β»

The Web (Google) Fear

    πŸ“‚ Google     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Gmail is having intermittent outages today but when i saw the below page my heart sank thinking they had suspended my account. The message isΒ so personal: We're sorry but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable. Seems innocent enough until you start thinking, what if it is my account only? Have I been banned, am I — Continue reading Β»

Outlook is Private - Really!

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google,Microsoft     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Logging into my Hotmail/Outlook account this morning I was greeted with this message touting the benefits of Outlook. They saved the best for last, claiming that "Outlook is private". Talk about false advertising.   It was barely a week ago when news leaked that Microsoft had snooped on an employee's Hotmail account while investigating a — Continue reading Β»

What Gmail Needs, Action Icons

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

I have been a Gmail user since its debut and have never looked back since I migrated from Hotmail so many years ago. But I still use Hotmail (now known as Outlook) and Yahoo Mail on occasion for trivial emailing and one of the great features that they offer is one-click actions for delete or — Continue reading Β»

Gmail Storage Jumps to 10G

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Today I noticed my Gmail storage had jumped form 7.5G to 10G. Maybe it's Google's way of compensating for the new ugly design. I suspect in most cases users didn't even notice the change and for even more users like me, who try to keep their account clean, this is really not much of an — Continue reading Β»

Gmail Forces New Look

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google     #     πŸ—¨ 2 Comments

The good times are over and the ugly Gmail era has dawned. Google finally made good on the threat of making the new look permanent. Over the weekend my Gmail style switched to the new ugliness and there was no longer an option available to revert to the old look as before. I can whine — Continue reading Β»

New Ugly Gmail Look

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google     # ,     πŸ—¨ 9 Comments

Yesterday I was greeted by an icon in Gmail to try their new look. I clicked, played with the new look for a while and ran right back to the old look. Alas, Google seems determined to push the new Gmail look on users, whether they like it or not, so the classic look may — Continue reading Β»
