I think it particullary dull of these large email providers to only provide advanced spam filters if you pay.
Has anyone subscribed to Yahoo Plus or MSN8? Know if the advanced features are much cop?
Into in Yahoo groups for a while (exchanging biz ideas with mates at the other end of the country), but then got into web design and free forum software...
I do object to paying for anything that can be done for free though. :)
<added>Ah! you can import your portfolio from Yahoo or MSN</added>

Doesnt Myway use Yahoo in some way or another?
...Aside from their blitz-type marketing campaigns? I'm not too sure. I think the major influence in both as of today is Google's presence.
Regardless, you have hit the nail on the head. Why pay for something that you can do on your own, easily, for free? It seems foolish, but I'm sure those not "in the know" are victims to Yahoo's hungry wallet.
when their twirly thing started with the words the thing i caught right away was 'More Spam' sure it was followed by 'prevention' but come on, its lies all lies.
EliteWeb - You are exactly correct here. The worst part is... I do not even have a Yahoo! account, and mysteriously, I get a spam email from them telling me to check this out. And, they are claiming that the best part is better SPAM PROTECTION?
Please... They should just come out and say:
"We aren't making enough off of everyone out there. And hopefully, you are lame enough to fall prey to this next great tool. Come on in, pay us more than $150 a year to do the same thing we do now... Worse than we already do it."
I ran a mock survey on one of my sites, taking the rise out my competitors survey, using almost the exactly same words! ;)
Great minds, eh?
The key is, however, can people get what Y! is ofeering for free ( or less) elsewhere? (AOL, MSN etc.)
I'm paying $10.95 a month for PayMyBills.com services.
For $12.95 a month with this Yahoo! dealie I can get their BillPay service AND another service ...
Not that I need another service. But if I did, it'd be cost effective.
