Why are random email providers trusted?  In many systems large email
providers are not trusted.

Large email providers like google, and hotmail are the ones not
trusted.  The reason being that you can more easily anonymously get
fake, or hacked gmail/hotmail accounts.  Yet here we have the opposite
situation happening - with the large providers trusted, and the
smaller ones not trusted.

Just a funny observation.  Cheese shop logic.
