Guide Review - Oddpost - Email Service
Oddpost is a wonderful email service, thanks to its familiar, fast and really easy to use web interface (which requires IE, though; others can use POP and IMAP), its great Bayesian spam filters and support for RSS feeds. Using Oddpost is great fun, too. Even reading the documentation can be a pleasure.
Unfortunately, Oddpost lacks some basic features, however: you can't filter mail and Oddpost can't properly quote text in replies or re-wrap text.
