Which free email service is good


A warning for others, not a question.

I use netscape mail for my public mailing duties. Lately I've noticed that some of my mail went unanwsered.

So I ran a little test, sending 9 identical emails, varying only by the numbers 1-9 in the body text, to my work email.

Out of 9 apparently successful transmissions, only 4 (#2,3,5,7 FWIW) made it through.

To add injury to insult, netscape charges $9.95 to contact them about their mail problems.

So, actually I guess there is a question. Which free mail service doesn't suck?

Hotmail, which is actually a service that is provided by a very well-known company called Microsoft is really a great email provider You are able to set up a free email account with a sufficient amount of space and simply a great hassle and problem free service You will be able to create an account at the following website: www.hotmail.com Other email providers you should look into are www.yahoo.com, and www.mail.com Mail.com actually allows you to select from a number of different names for your email account, such as [email protected] or [email protected]
