I saw that thread earlier but it had almost no personal experience responses from other dvdtalkers. The exernal email website was somewhat informative tho. Yahoo mail is bla and has tons of ads. Personal experience recomendations is what im looking for. Thanks if you can help!

Another decent e-mail provider:

Save Ferris, sometimes people (inc myself) will bounce an older thread rather than starting a brand new one.

As before, I recommend Softhome which does both web and pop3. Its been so long now, but I think I first came across it via a recommendation at the "fepg" website (I'd not heard of the "emailaddresses.com" one at that time).

Hotmail is pretty big too. But look for free email services to go away in the near future. It will soon be a very basic account for free and anything good will require a pay service. They have to make money somehow.

I like myrealbox.com and amexmail.com. Only use amexmail if you have an amex card or knows someone that will enter the number for you. It is free, but you pop access with the number.
