    Please note that Microsoft doesn't like third party email clients (such as Mail) from accessing Hotmail so as a rule, newer Hotmail accounts do not work with HTTPMail. :eek:

    I use my ISP-provided email service. It's fast and has no quotas. See if our ISP offers something similar. :)

    However, the BEST free email service I have used is gmail. www.gmail.com I can send you an invite if you would like. Its great. It also has a really nice web interface. The web interface is almost better then some email clients.

    Hell it doesn't even like its own crap... I have hotmail. and a Windows mobile 5.0 phone, and hotmail acted real screwy on my phone then when using the mobile outlook express type thing... That and hotmail gets millions of billions of spam... they have to be the worst... so that killed my phone too, but not the point.
