Comcast launches free video-messaging service

In its latest bid to snag and keep high-speed Internet customers, Comcast is offering subscribers a free video-messaging service and discounted or free webcams.

The new Video Mail product lets users create and send video messages up to 45 seconds long using a webcam, a small video camera connected to a computer. It can also be used to send photo slideshows made up of digital pictures.

Comcast high-speed Internet customers can download the new Video Mail program -- for free -- from www.comcast.net.

Webcams?

Wonderful. I hope I don't have to install any free web cams on any clunker PC's. It's bad enough trying to install the service on machines that are best used as boat anchors.

Spam after VideoEmail?

I was curious so I d/led the software. I was going to delete everything after I saw that disclaimer, but I installed it anyways. Have to say it works well, but here's my problem and I'm wondering if anyone else had the same problem. I used my main comcast email to signup, figuring it was safe to use it with Comcast but now its 3 or 4 days later and today I recieved 3 spam emails that weren't dictionary attacks or any other spam technique, at the bottom of the emails they said I either signed up or a third party gave them the email address, and they weren't your normal spam looking emails, so I believe them, they also had an anti-spam logo on the bottom of the emails. I wrote to Comcast, telling them the story and they tell me they won't ever sell email addresses and direct me to their privacy policy. So, have you guys had a similar problem with spam after the installation of the video email software? Thanks in advance!
