I am, by most accounts, an email power user. I send and receive hundreds of messages a day, and do so from multiple devices. I have custom signatures and email templates, and can conduct business and transactions via email with ease. My entire business is run on and depends on email communication. So you can imagine my distress when suddenly, irrevocably, that was all taken away.
To give you some background, I have been emailing since 1992 when I got my first email account, email@example.com, at The Ohio State University. Later, I opened a Hotmail account and used that for a while, and then by the mid-nineties I was using Yahoo! as my primary email. From 1999 - 2001, I worked for a Fortune 500 company in Ohio and used Lotus Notes, and then in late 2001 I became the Sales Manager for an IT company and we used Outlook with Microsoft Exchange.
