Today I read an article about Yahoo! email accounts and it got me thinking-- of the major free email providers, what would it take to max out an email account to the point that the accounts were rendered a.) nonfunctional and b.) so large that the accounts were closed by the service providers. To find out, I've created two email accounts (with hopefully more to come) where I am asking any and everyone to forward as much email to them as they possibly can. Yes, that's right, I'm asking for loads of junk mail to be sent to these addresses for this experiment. I've created a blog that I will chronicle my findings on at http://maxoutmail.blogspot.com/. Please go there if you'd like to check out the current stats. Please share my page with any and all who might be interested in this wacky and mostly pointless experiment. If you would like to participate in this experiment, I ask that you please avoid creating scripts that will send a ton of 10MB emails every 10 milliseconds. I'm sure someone will eventually try to do that but for starters I'm trying to keep that type of a behavior to a minimum. It's more fun that way! Oh, and in case you would just like the email addresses they are: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks 1,000,000!
