My first email was πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
Just to know, spacetoon is the greatest cartoon channel in the Arab world. They also had a magazine that has articles, written stories, and manga.
2005 I think was my first time creating an email, just because I read in an article in the magazine about the importance of having an email! I was like 10 years old boy and that made me proud as I thought making an email will be my first step to lead the world or something like that πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ
I opened their website and made an account. Wrote articles in their website forums happily. and after a week I knew that I can't send or receive messages to and from other services clients! I mean if you have a gmail or a windowslive email I can't contact you! It was a policy that I accepted without knowing, I asked them and they replied 'you can only contact people with email'! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
So I couldn't lead the world at the age of 10 πŸ˜‚
