Its so incredible that a project team manager would allow that. What?
He thought the complaints would go away?
That's just the maturation of Google. Originally, everyone who used
Gmail did so for free, and I really doubt many of them were receiving
Oracle reports (which are still in uuencode). Today there is a
significant number of commercial customers. Priorities change.
Right, but more significant, I think, it is a hitting a wider segment
of commercial systems. For example, operators are using a gmail.com
account as a secondary or primary emergency and system operations
contacts in case their own system goes down or there is a schedule
outage, etc. I just got a CC to my gmail.com account from verizon for
a february 17 10 min maintenance. That gmail.com account started a
"JUNK" account for "junk" signups or aliasing at some forums or list
to minimize usage of my corporate addresses.
