How to Recover Deleted Hotmail Emails

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

This should probably come as no surprise, but it turns out that sometimes, you can still recover Hotmail email, even after it’s been removed from the “deleted” folder (which is a good thing for the security conscious to keep in mind.)

This is similar to the way files are deleted in Windows. The idea here is to give you an option to recover emails that you may have accidentally deleted, or emails that you have deleted but need to access at a later point in time again.

Gmail Reports Why Mails Have Been Rated as Spam

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Spam isn’t all that big of a deal to me. Heck, I just treat it the same way I treat snail-mail junk-mail; I toss it in the trash, no filter needed.

Opera’s Latest 11.60 Builds Shows Mail Improvements

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

My experience with Opera is pretty limited, but this article makes me think I should probably check it out again …

The Opera web browser is the only popular web browser – and with that I mean market share wise – that ships with its own built-in email client. While I have not used Opera Mail in a long while thanks to the excellent desktop mail software Thunderbird, I have always followed the news closely. Opera is currently working on two different Opera versions. First the soon to be released Opera 11.60 and then on the version after that, Opera 12.
