Really? Microsoft finally bit the bullet and allowed a public standard to
access to one of their services? Holy Crap, it's the end of the world
folks. No doubt about it. To quote the infamous Dr. Venkman: "Dogs & Cats
living together. Mass Hysteria!"



And yes, POP does suck, badly! I've said before that POP needs to die and
ugly, ugly death.
