    What's good for email? I thought comcast was but I do not like it. I am annoyed at trying to find the right one. Does anyone have suggestions, I decided that I would not like to use gmail. -nathan

    An e-mail client is what handles the e-mail, apps like or Thunderbird. I'm guessing you're looking for a good e-mail service provider, there are plenty on the web - do you want to pay or are you looking for a free web based e-mail? Do you just want e-mail or would you like a few extras? Do you want POP/IMAP access? Is it for work, or just personal use? Do you want aliases capability?...

    Yahoo! Mail is fairly decent as general web based e-mails go and you get decent size inbox.
    .Mac is great, very little spam with lots of extras but expensive.
    FastMail seems to come highly recommended.
    MacOSX is great value and works well.
    I would avoid Hotmail, spam and ugly interface.

    There are plenty of e-mail service providers catering to bunch of different needs and wants, give a little more info on what exactly it is you're looking for and we'll be able to help you out better :)

    If Comcast is your Internet service provider, then you will not be able to change to a different cable modem. You may be able to switch to DSL from the phone company, but it won't be as fast. You say that you don't like Comcast for email, but you don't say what you don't like about it. If you are not getting email, then it is likely that you have not properly configured Apple's Mail email program. Most other email programs are configured similarly. In order for us to help you, you need to be clearer about the nature of your problem.
