I love how Eric Schmidt and Google try to play the "Good guy" card and pretend like they, given the exact same situation, would not play the exact same sort of game Microsoft played. Step off your high horse Schmidt.

As a past user of Hotmail, before Microsoft screwed it up. A current user of Yahoo, which I don't want Microsoft to screw up. Leave it alone. Lets talk about Monopolies %96 percent of the Desktop market sounds like a monopoly, lets not let it happen to email.......

How did microsoft screw up hotmail?? It's sooo much better then the yahoo mail interface and their junk filter is great!!!! I don't think I've had a single viagra advertisment in my inbox for like 2 months...ALMOST everything bad gets put into junk mail. My friend has a yahoo account and the junk he's getting is just riddiculous...

yahoo mail is SOO awsome! i used hotmail, google and yahoo at the same time for a month. Yahoo mail interface is simple, sleep and extremely easy to use. plus you can use it as a online file holder. you save mail as drafts, and they are always there, download them right when you want. You cant do that with google or hotmail.

also, yahoo mail has 0 junk also. you get junk when you put your email on untrusted websites. They spread your email around and you get nailed with junk. the first mail that i had, i used to do that all the time, sign up for everything under the sun. i wouldnt even check my mail because there was just junk. now with my new mail, ive never put my email on dum sites. and guess what. 0 spam, 0 viagra.

So if you put your yahoo email out there, would you get the Viagra junk? Because he's saying that the hotmail filters catch all that stuff, and you're just claiming that you don't get it because you don't sign up for crap.

Those are two different arguments.

And Hotmail does have a drafts feature. Not sure why you would imply that they didn't...
