Firms want to start charging for emails

post #1 of 7

AOL AND YAHOO are going to start charging for preferential email delivery, according to a report in the New York Times.

Under the scheme, the two firms will deliver special messages paying between a quarter of a cent to one cent to get them delivered.

But the people wanting to send the messages have to promise they're not spam and people have opted in.

The report claims Yahoo and AOL will be able to deliver them straight to people's inboxes avoiding spam filters. We think that this is a hope rather than a practicality. Spambayes seems quite capable of catching anything that people designate as spam.

Your quote made it sound like they were just flat out going to charge you for sending emails, whereas in fact you only pay for this spam free stuff. Thats what I mean by quoting half the story
