Email crisis!!!

Yahoo! and Gmail both need to put work into their e-mail software. I’ve outlined this in previous posts.

Yesterday was the last straw though.  My Yahoo! webmail lets spam through that it shouldn’t – all the time – while classifying real email as spam. Yet yesterday I was told that an email from a relatively new gmail account that I sent was classified as spam by a Yahoo! Mail account I sent it to. Gmail lets some spam through to my Inbox, while other e-mails not only haven’t made it to Inbox, they didn’t even go to the spam folder. Then inappropriately classifies one of my shared domain servers as spam.   

Alright enough! How in the world is is anyone supposed to communicate in a reliable fashion? Maybe you guys should have some people work on fixing this stuff?

It’s a serious problem whether you are in London, New York, San Francisco or Singapore. Regardless of what portal you apply, no matter what your job or career.

    Sadly, I have yet to find the answer too, but I feel your pain David. I’m having all the same problems as you are, with the exact same pair of services.

    Yikes. I know Google is busy being Big Brother and all that, but they are really slipping! I am just trying to get started as a free-lance writer, and my one-and-only client sent me a work order, which sat in the new SPAM folder for 3 days, unopened. I’ve corresponded with this company a dozen times! Why now???? Of course, I realize that it’s a great service, that I get it for free, and that targeting advertising is spy software. Sigh. I’m just too lazy to get a new account elsewhere.
