    Article not recent but interesting to note what it says ....

    http://www.langa.com/newsletters/2002/2002-10-10.htm

    6) IncrediMail Problems (Part One)
    Hi Fred, I'm a network administrator for a large Reservation in Minnesota.
    One of my users asked me if it would be all right to install a new E-mail
    client package called Incredimail, I checked out the
    http://www.incredimail.com website and noticed stellar recommendations from
    Cnet, ZDnet, and Tucows so I downloaded the demo to check it out. What I
    found in the user agreement for the software was pretty unbelievable,
    obviously the people who recommended this software didn't read it. The
    agreement itself is extremely long... but the attached excerpt from the
    agreement almost knocked me out of my chair:

    "10. UNSOLICITED MATERIALS
    Any confidential, secret or proprietary information or other material
    submitted or sent to IncrediMail, including without limitation via any
    Message sent by You through the Service, Site, or IncrediMail's physical
    mail and e-mail addresses, or in any other way, will be deemed to be not
    confidential or secret. By submitting or sending information or other
    material to IncrediMail or by posting information on any portion of the
    Service you (a) Warrant that you have all rights of any kind to the material
    and that to the best of your knowledge no other party has any rights to the
    material; and (b) Grant IncrediMail an unrestricted, perpetual, irrevocable
    license to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify, transmit and distribute
    the material, and you further agree that IncrediMail is free to use any
    ideas, know-how, concepts or techniques you send us or post on the Service
    for any purpose, without any compensation to you or any other person."

    I'm not a reactionary person by nature but the implication of that
    paragraph for the average user is staggering. I always tell my users to read
    every agreement carefully but of course many don't, this agreement is
    especially long and loaded with legalspeak to further guarantee that the
    average person won't read it all. People are ultimately responsible for
    their own actions but I believe that this particular company goes way too
    far in misleading people about their ultimate goal and someone needs to
    shine a light on them and make people aware of what's really going on, at
    least then they can make an informed choice about using the service. I'm a
    subscriber to several technical newsletters and I'm writing to all of them.
    Thank you for your time, love your newsletter. --- Ed McPhail

    Some of that language is similar to that used by other mail services and
    ISPs to get around copyright issues that can innocently arise when
    proprietary information is sent through a third party--- for example, it's
    not uncommon for an ISP to want to ensure they're not violating a copyright
    if they merely store a copy of your mail on their servers while it's being
    processed.

    But I can't think of any innocent reason for the phrasing that states "...
    IncrediMail is free to use any ideas, know-how, concepts or techniques
    you... post on the Service for any purpose, without any compensation to you
    or any other person." Maybe there is a perfectly inoffensive reason for
    including that, but it eludes me.

    There's also another reason not to like IncrediMail, too: See next item.

    7) IncrediMail Problems (Part Two)
    There's another reason not to like IncrediMail, too: It's HTML-based, which
    not only opens the door to all manner of web-borne security threats that are
    absent from text-based email, but also adds tons of baggage to outbound
    IncrediMail email. This extra baggage can clog the inboxes of recipients of
    these mails, even if the recipients aren't IncrediMail users.

    For example, the headers of email sent by Outlook Express might take this
    simple form:

    From: [user name and address]
    To: {recipient's name and address}
    Subject:
    Date:
    MIME-Version 1.0 Content-Type multipart/mixed;
    boundary="----=_NextPart_000_0007_01C263C7.DB858E80"
    X-Priority 3
    X-MSMail-Priority Normal
    X-Mailer Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000

    But here's an actual IncrediMail header, snipped from a reader's note to me:

    From: [user name and address]
    To: {recipient's name and address}
    Subject:
    Date:
    Content-Type Multipart/related;type="multipart/alternative";boundary=
    "------------Boundary-00=_NVWB7TH0000000000000"
    X-Mailer IncrediMail 2001 (1750710)
    X-FID 9FF122EE-7F22-11D4-AE37-00010216CD0D

    X-ADF 0
    X-AUTO X-ASN,X-ASH,X-AN,X-AP,X-AD
    X-CNT ;
    X-Priority 3

    Note that none of that is the actual email message--- it's just the typical
    extra baggage IncrediMail adds to the email header before you even get to
    the message itself: An extra 600 characters or so (call it roughly 5
    kilobits) of code that must be sent by the mailer, processed by the ISPs of
    both the mailer and the recipient, and then downloaded and processed by the
    recipient for each and every IncrediMail message sent. Yikes! HTML email is
    bloated anyway, but man, IncrediMail pushes it to new extremes.

    Yes, IncrediMail provides amusing, all-singing, all dancing, animated,
    colored, formatted, flashing, bleeping, blurping emails--- but with the
    certainty of tons of excess baggage riding along with the email; with the
    possibility of opening the door to malicious HTML-borne worms, viruses, and
    such; and with serious questions about who owns the content of the messages
    you send using their system.

    No, thanks.
