#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Follow

@antekone and don't drop Gmail for an Outlook/Exchange Online system: they do exactly the same thing. Any SMTP server that is not run by an ISP or a giant mail hosting company is flagged as spam by default.

This is blatant anti-competitive behaviour, but they will claim it is for our own good.

The reality is that they want to control your data and lock you into the privacy nightmare that their ecosystems are.

It is AOL/CompuServe all over again, only much, much worse.

We will rebuild an alternative radicaly different new cyberspace architecture.

There is nothing to fix into that one.

It's fucked up.
