  2. List pollution problem almost solved. If you think this is UCE, please Reply with SUPPRESS in the Subject.

Hi NT/2000 Pros,

This is Issue Number 200 since we started, time literally flies! We decided to dedicate this special issue to the one thing that has been close to your hearts for all this time: How do your -colleagues- rate all those third party products out there?

Many magazines do reviews, run tests, give away 'Editor's Choice' and 'Best Of Show' Awards and those are all extremely useful. But there is no place where people like us in the NT/2000 trenches simply can VOTE on tools they like (or hate!).

So that is why W2Knews hosts a yearly vote where you can show what your experience is with the tools out there. We have been agonizing about the finalists for the last year, and we hope we've been able to get the 'Most Used Top 4' in each category.

You can now vote for more than 90 finalists, on products from more than 65 developers, in 24 tool categories. The vote will close October 8-th this year and the awards will be presented to the developers at the Microsoft Exchange Conference in Dallas, TX Oct 9-13. But the results will be available to all of you from here on out for the rest of the year!

PS. 1) Remember to tell your friends to vote too. 2) You can only vote once. 3) The VOTE-page has been optimized for MS Internet Explorer.

2) List pollution problem almost solved

Do not want to be on this list? Please let us know. We are moving to a 100% opt-in model. I'd like to ask your help as we are faced with a bit of a screwup. Sometimes we receive a list of email addresses from the software developers we work with. We are always assured these are opt-ins and want to receive mail from us. But the last list we received had a bunch of wrong addresses in there.

To prevent this from happening in the future we have changed our procedures to 100% opt-in. But you may get this and feel it is unsollicited commercial email (UCE) and not want it. Please REPLY with in the subject line the word SUPPRESS. Guaranteed you'll never hear from us again, and our apologies for the hassle. Please check our privacy statement at the end of this page:

Warm regards,

Stu Sjouwerman
