Why the Messagelabs website is pants

Site reviewed on 31 January 2004 and 2 February 2004

Welcome to MessageLabs. Global pioneers in making ourselves look ridiculous and demonstrating how little testing we do!

I visited their website using Mozilla, one of the most widely used graphical browsers available and certainly one of the most up to date.

I received this message, which demonstrates a breathtaking lack of testing. Besides being completely incorrect, isn't it a requirement to support text only browsers because of disability access legislation?

We don't test properly

Still, I thought I'd give them a second chance and revisited 2 days later, whereupon I received this. Yes a completely empty site.

We still don't test properly

With these examples of poor testing, would you trust this company with your email?
