ZDNet's free email (and users archives) gone without a warning
Author: JT Smith
Wired.com: "ZDNet U.K. and Australia shuts down its free e-mail service without notice, and that's only the half of it. Users find themselves unable to retrieve messages or information they'd previously saved to their folders." ZDNet UK users were dumped, apparently because of a payment dispute between ZD and its email service provider.
