Hotmail: SRSLY WTF

It's totally unreliable AND you still can't get at it with IMAP or POP or, well, anything other than some Byzantine DAV-based thingy that requires you pay extra and have a subscription. It sucks, hard. Why do people still stick with it? [And don't even get me started on folks still using AOL mail in 2008 - that's even worse.]
