big free email guys: no guarantee your email is delivered

Shares

They keep forgetting to tell you, but… if you're using one of the big, free, email servers, email sent to you is not guaranteed to be delivered.

Engineers from some of them tell me that one or two per cent of email will not get to you, which might be problematic if you're running a business of some sort, etc.

This is not a matter of bad spam filtering, just the underlying technology.

I guess, for free, not bad… but it's been suggested that I get the word out so you know.
