From → Rubbish

  1. Great list – I’m investigating zeromail now thanks to the smh article yesterday.
    The only thing I would add is nutshellmail
    It’s a handy service giving you a summary of your social networking in one email at times you request.

  2. Don’t forget a fellow Aussie email company 🙂

    We develop Exchange and Google Apps alternatives to run on-premise or in the cloud.

  3. Don’t forget Postini, an email filtering, security and archiving service that was acquired by Google.
