Navy, Marines Block Commercial Email Sites

No more Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo! or other similar emailing on the seven seas:

The block includes access to e-mail services from computers at base libraries and liberty centers that are connected to an official government network.

The policy was enacted for security reasons, of course. But that’s not going to make it any easier to swallow. The .mil email system is unaffected.


  1. This probably has something to do with the fact that the Marine spy in the White House used a hotmail account to send information to the Phillipines.

  3. Air Force has blocked most, if not all, commercial e-mail sites for years now. We got over it and got to work.
