free email alternatives to hotmail?

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by 80proofgatorade, Oct 18, 2003.

  1. any suggestions on free email alternatives to hotmail? specifically ones accessible through outlook since hotmail is going to block non-subscribers from doing this anymore. just like yahoo. :mad:
     
  2. nice site. interesting concept. thanks.

    Doesn't your ISP provide any?

    I am still getting my hotmail free thru Outlook Express and they claimed I was going to have to pay - seems like two years ago!

    Or did I misunderstand what 80proofgatorade said?

    I've always used Postmark at www.postmark.net as backup e-mail. It also supports POP, so you'd be able to access mails from any e-mail client that supports POP including Outlook.

    Yes - seems like they claimed they were going to cut off hotmail to those who did not pay for the extra storage - I still get periodic emails stating that hotmailin OE is stillonly a beta and they do not supply support!

    What a joke. Don't they realize there are so many alternatives out there. Microsoft antics once again...
