  1. All of those points have been true for years; they weren’t hidden, they weren’t secrets, it didn’t ever require some mythical secret batphone number to get these answers.

    I’m very impressed with Yahoo’s mail team and the openness that they have been showing through the Mail blog and their interactions with other groups, like the email standards project.

    Many others could learn a few things from these types of examples.
