Email Is Forty Years Old This Month

It may seem unbelievable, but the first email was sent in October 1971, legend has it that is was of course, “QWERTY” and therefore it makes this month the fortieth anniversary of the first email being sent, some people may loath the idea of email being around for so long but there some of us who still love it.

It is all thanks to Ray Tomlinson a graduate from MIT who was working at a research and development firm called Bolt, Beranek and Newman. There his job was to work on ARPANET, which is the earliest form of internet used for military communications.

While working on this he created a program known as SNDMSG, the clever thing about this was that it could deliver messages to different people on the same network, this also led to the use of the “@” symbol to identify individuals.

Hotmail accounts wiped out

The world’s most popular free email service, Hotmail from MSN is a little less popular now than it was a few weeks ago, due the fact that many users have been complaining that their entire Hotmail account has been wiped out without any warning!

Apparently when they tried to log in the affected users were greeted with a “Welcome to Hotmail” page, just as you would if they had just signed up for a new account. This can also happen if the account has been left for over two hundred and ten with no activity.

But it now seems that Microsoft have now sorted the problem and the accounts have been restored, although according to some users messages from the last three days are not showing up yet.

“We recognize that even though we restored email access, some of the affected users did not receive mail sent to them during the last 24-72 hours,” says Microsoft on the Windows Live help site.

“We are in the process of rectifying that and should be finished by late tonight Pacific time.”

1 in 20 employees in trouble over email

It seems that sending a funny, rude or personal email while at work, can get you into a lot of trouble and in some cases sending an email could lead to the sack.

According to figures released by the Press Association, five per cent of workers have found themselves in trouble because of a misjudged email sent to the wrong person at the wrong time.

The issue seems to get worse, because a third of employees admit to actually pressing the “Reply All” button, instead of the “Reply” button and therefore causing more trouble. Just out of curiosity, it seems that men are more likely to do that than women!
