If Hotmail was ACTUALLY that hot, maybe I would like her more.

I've had a Gmail account since it was beta.

I've not had anything steal access to my account.

I don't throw my email address at every mailing list I see or visit porn sites.

See how that works?

i agree with #1. after i got hacked and the hacker deleted my google account, they flat out REFUSED to restore it. they said that /I/ was the one who chose to delete the account and they would not reverse it. nor could i use that name ever again. e.e

Isn't it great how Google is totally willing to pin the blame on nonexistent hackers? Really makes you feel good about the quality of their work and the competence of their customer service.

I had a Gmail account for 2 months, then someone from china accessed my account and stole my battle.net name and password.

I use disposeable or fake emails for forum posts, site registrations etc.
Gmail for my phones apps
Hotmail for actual email
Yahoo as a final backup if everything falls down

I'm getting ready to leave gmail. Not because of the recent incidents some unlucky people have been facing, but because I'm sick of those assholes spying on me all the time.

Hotmail... lulz. Anyways, it says Persist. Should be persists. Right Jo?

Not sure if you'll see it, but it turns out you weren't the only one affected. Apparently thousands of others had the same bug as you did for their inbox. http://media.cbronline.com/news/google-restores-missing-gmail-accounts-040311

So no worries about hacking! Just an unfortunate bug.

You have a domain name. Why don't you just host your own mail?

@pong: similar thing happened with me, but it was someone activating my WotLK 10 day trial. Nothing was lost, I don't think anyone got in even, probably just some glitch.

Also, if you want to create password, create a complete gibberish words that you can sing out if you forget, also make surreal or tricky password recovery Q&As, for example Q: Your pet name? A: Guludandio my ass.

There, use a weird gibberish like that and weird words.

I use 4 emails, 2 Gmails, a hotmail and a yahoo mail.

My most active email? Gmail and Hotmail, love to open my browser and open both, it's great having a threesome.

My brain is now full of passwords made up from random gibberish.

Seems like Hotmail got pretty hot (yeah, iswydt) while you were gone.
I only started using Hotmail recently and it has been pretty good thus far.

The other day I got a message from Blizzard that my credit card was charged for a WoW transaction and I hadn't played WoW in 2 years.

Blizzard sorted it all out and I still had control of my account (I changed passwords) but I still don't know how they could have possibly gotten my password.

It's funny, because I had almost the same problem with hotmail a month back, which had me moving everything to yahoo and google. Everytime I logged in, it told me there was maintenance and to check back. I didn't have access to my hotmail for two days, and their support was useless.

Hotmail is still awesome though.

Glad to see Google fixed the problem, although they didn't have to be such dicks about it.

I actually get more spam with my Gmail account than with other carriers, but then again, I used it as a throwaway email.

I've never had any issues with Gmail, but I tried to access my Hotmail account a while back, and they had shut it down. The only way to reactivate it and access my mail was to receive an activation e-mail they sent TO MY HOTMAIL ADDRESS

Harddisks have a stack of rotating plates where a reading fork moves over. In case of an earthquake, the arm can touch the plates and destroy the magnetic carriers on the plates.

@Tyr: thats perfectly normal, tapes are still one of the most reliable mass storage devices.
* They don't have rotating parts like an harddisk -> Cont
* They have several times the storage cabability of DVD/BluRays
* They're cheap as hell
* They're the most easiest to handle

They had to actually use *tape* backups to restore the mail.

@AJ: The tentacle guy is his online persona, like when he's drawing or playing online games. Yellow-green shirt guy represents his RL persona in his RL woes.
And true. Most services are just slow to fix things because it's a bit of work, but give it some time and they'll happen to get it fixed.

That must be you in the comic, cause I don't see any tentacles. Btw, Hmail-girl is Hot!

99% of the time they use a canned response because it usually (depending on company) hits its mark
the other 1% of the time they use it because they are busy fixing the issue instead of writing up individual responses (or a canned response more specific to the situation)

You poor soul. Now Hotmail won't stop contacting you in the middle of the night at one last desperate attempt to win your heart just for helping you that one time.
