MSN8 Dial up service
Smart Junk mail filter - but you have to pay ...

[join.msn.com...] (sorry about the messy URL - dont know how to clean it up).

MSN are offering a dial up service (im assuming this is new - i havent noticed it before), which boasts a smart junk mail filter. But you have to pay!

It would seem to me if they really were dedicated to fighting spam, then this would be intergrated into Hotmail - a virtual breeding ground for spam.

But no. Just another opportunity to make money! :)

You know what's weird... a buddy of mine still works at MS and he recently bought a computer from Dell. The computer had WinXP Pro installed yet it came bundled with AOL.

Finally, we know MSN8 competes with AOL8 ...I mean if it didn't why would all the stop signs on the Microsoft campus (here in Redmond) have "AOL" written underneath the actually "STOP"?
