    Hi :)
    My GF is in need of an email account that she can check via the weeeb. Are they all as bad as hotmail or is there a half decent one anyone is using and can recommend?

    Thankyou kindly for any recommendations.

    Thanks for the suggestion...Is the URL squirrelmail.com? I tried this and setting up an email address was less than obvious. Is it free?

    Very slow, and extremely excessive amounts of spam (75+ a day on a barely used account). The 'privacy' policy is a joke.

    Thats been my experience anyway.

    i've used yahoo mail for about 7 years and think it's great... i RARELY get spam email in my inbox, it all goes to the Bulk Mail folder and even that is usually very little.

    yahoo all the way!

    Hotmail spam count (per day) : 50 - 75 in bulk, 15 - 20 in inbox
    Yahoo spam count (per day): 0 - 1 in bulk, 0 in inbox

    Can't go wrong with Yahoo, plus you get 6mb of space, as opposed to 2mb with Hotmail.

    my email addy was "myemailis@whatthefuck.com"
    the site got trashed within a week, and I lost the email account.
