Time to take the certified email survey. Here's some background on the issue:
AOL and Yahoo! have recently announced plans to utilize Goodmail's CertifiedEmail program. The announcement has generated controversy, both within the general Internet community and amongst nonprofit emailers. An Open Letter signed by groups including Moveon.org, Democracy in Action, and the EFF criticized the plan for creating a two-tiered Internet, with poorer service for those who did not pay the "email tax." An announcement by AOL that nonprofits would be offered free accreditation services did not end the protests. At the same time, organizations such as the American Red Cross have welcomed the Goodmail system as a way to avoid the phishing attacks and fraud in which well-known organizations such as the Red Cross have been targeted.
