That brings up a question I've had occasionally: If I have two accounts (say, one with Yahoo and one with Hotmail), and I have a friend with a Hotmail account, is there any advantage in using my Hotmail account to send to him ? Perhaps more reliable delivery and/or formatting since it's using the same service ?Also, just because your friends might have Hotmail that doesn't mean you need to go with that service too.
IOW, one feature this service touted is that it (as opposed to other email services, apparently) could send email messages from one account to another without entering cyberspace, and, therefore, not being as vulnerable as other services.In a nutshell, Woomail.com gives you 5 ways to safely control online communications.
1. From your inbox, choose the Compose Woomail link. This allows you to send a instant mail to another woomailer on the same server so your message never enters cyberspace and is read in 256 bit encryption. This Woomail message arrives in the other woomailers inbox instantly. It never goes outside the Woomail system, thus “The worlds Safest Mail™.
I'd have to agree with that statement. It a little easier to get away with a Gmail account, but for business purposes you really should get a custom domain name that you own for your business email communications.it can be unwise to use the Hotmail domain if you're using the email address for business purposes.
Yes, there is a slight advantage. Occasionally there will be a problem between the larger email providers. Yahoo getting some of their outgoing email blocked by Time Warner and Verizon, Hotmail and Yahoo not playing nicely together, etc. It doesn't seem to happen too often but it does happen.That brings up a question I've had occasionally: If I have two accounts (say, one with Yahoo and one with Hotmail), and I have a friend with a Hotmail account, is there any advantage in using my Hotmail account to send to him ?
Also, are emails sent Hotmail-to-Hotmail vulnerable to interception by 'outsiders' the same way as if it were sent Yahoo-to-Hotmail ?
Technically yes. The email between providers is traveling across the internet and not just between a couple of Hotmail servers.
