My stars and garters
wow! I might inadvertantly learn the potential username (and full name) of some random Google user! Please tell me what possible nefarious purpose this could have, i.e. – why is this important?
Their one huuuge problem is that Oddpost (currently) only runs in IE. I imagine with all the bad IE press, they will have a mozilla/firefox compatible version out pretty soon.
Rumors are flying, by the way, that a large competitor of Google may have recently bought Oddpost… so they should be getting plenty of attention soon. 😉

Seriously? Interesting – time to google…
And after 30 days oddpost isn’t free, thats one reason gmail gets so much press it’s free and a gig of storage. Oddpost no matter how impressive it is is not free and offers 50 mb of storage.
If they would offer me Gmail at work instead of Outlook, I’ll take it any day. The interface is really smart, the label functionality is simple yet efficient – and you can’t beat the search speed. They might be able to keep the html compliance clean by just letting 3rd parties mess it up with stuff like notification tools … you can then just bypass that if you don’t want it.
Isn’t the web version of Outlook 2003 a very good example of a web application?
Or is it classified as a client only?
