Hi Jeff, I received this blog post by email. Not that I mind hearing from local Microsoft people, but I was curious how my unpublished email address got onto a mailing list. I tried to reply to you, but it seems YOUR email address is not public hehehe - you may appreciate the irony in that!
Microsoft sent me an email offering a beta copy of Office 10.
When I replied, they wanted some sort of a ID code (HotMail etc.)
When I tried to sign up they said that optusnet.com.au was a prohibited domain name.
