Guide Review - MyRealBox - Free Email Service
Unlike many other services, MyRealBox does not require you to see any ads, and unlike many other services, it is not web-based only: you can access MyRealBox with either POP or IMAP, which makes it possible to use it with any email client.
MyRealBox's web interface is clean and useful, although it is not the most advanced one. Novell uses MyRealBox to test new features of its software. This puts you on the cutting edge, but it also means that the service may be unavailable exactly when you'd need it most.
For a private, non-critical email account MyRealBox is almost perfect, though.
