A New Web Service: Openmail.cc
- Ever heard of Openmail.cc ? In a world of email services crammed up with unnecessary clutter this one comes as a welcome respite. 512 MB storage, POP/IMAP access, **no ads in interface or in signature of outgoing mails**. Do check it out. It's awesome :) here http://openmail.cc

Whotz up Yahoo, Gmail?
- Been on Yahoo for a long while till it got very, very strange and couldn't load addresses and more. Tried Gmail till friends told me that the words come thru but no pictures .... ? What happened to "reliability" and just doing what you said you were going to do? Going to Zoho .... till they change.

- I have been using Gmail for a few years now. I think it's the most secure although someone got into mine… through my phone unfortunately. Now I am afraid to use a cell phone as access to a computer. The thing about Gmail is I also want an email that doesn't show my name but can't seem to get… nor with Yahoo. Am trying to get a different gmail acct since mine has been compromised with who knows who but can't w/ Google. Some of these political groups can get pretty nasty if you don't swing their way… & my swing is in the middle…

They All Suck
- I think the Zoho is the best so far if you want simplicity mixed with a spoonful of care from the providers. Left hotmail, yahoo, gmail, gmx all in disgust - mainly spam…

Gmail invasive & now so is Yahoo
- Gmail will go so far into your email as to reading the titles of your pix, if that is all you are sent. Want to have fun? Write a fake email and include large, odd and unrelated words. Then read the ads gmail plants on your email. That will make a believer out of you. And Yahoo, just today, stated they are going to "upgrade" to some beta program and will read your mail to sell ads and make bukoo bucks off your privacy. Try the fake email with them too. Seeing is believing. Sam

Mail.com? Be Warned!
- This comment refers to Mail.com. A while ago a had a paid account with them. Mail.com is technically incompetent and also morally bankrupt. They ignored my request to return 14 months unused subscription after I could no longer use their services due to THEIR problems which they were unable to fix in over 10 days.

Yahoo!; the best by far
- I have been using Yahoo! for more than 7 years and have always found it to be so much better than Hotmail. Haven't really been too fussed about Gmail; I wouldn't switch.

- Used it since its beginning when you had to be invited to use it, liked it very well. It was the best I could find for sending and viewing embedded pics, although I wish they'd have allowed folders for sorting. Never was crazy about just the labeling thing. Last fall they decided to "improve" it (words I have SO come to hate — it seems "new & improved" so rarely is). It no longer works with my dial up—it says not compatible browser, but I have IE8, Chrome & Mozilla Firefox, and then found out it is really that they no long offer any rich text with dial up but they "want you to still have email, so offer you html" Well, if they were at all concerned about long-time users, why didn't they just keep a version of the old email going. While we are on Google subject, I am not that impressed with Chrome except for playing one game on FB—it and Firefox do pretty well for that while IE doesn't work well with FB. I am now looking for a replacement for Gmail, want to chuck it.

GMX: not so good
- GMX creates problems with blocking and deleting accounts and not responding to messages requesting help. Read their forum first.
Mail.com: no way
- I used to have mail.com till the 2nd day. It would not load, so I now have Zoho. [I] trust Zoho. No spam! Biz email on Zoho is free! And GMX I cannot send! Thumbs up for Zoho.
Yahoo! Not for me!!
- As soon as I opened a Yahoo a/c, I received copious spam to my Orangemail, all emanating from Yahoo!, some of which could be labelled as porn, or selling sex aids. As I am a 74-year-old lady I really could do without this!

Mail.com is a disaster
- Looking for something to replace Boltblue.com, which is closing down, I have tried mail.com, as I found it favorably reviewed. In short, it has not been functioning to compose mail for at least two days, and the only reply from the provider is that they are working on it!

Gmail betrayed my trust
- Did you know that g-mail now asks for your phone number when you sign up? "To prevent spam"--talk about creepy! Not only that but you probably don't realize (because it's in tiny print at the bottom of the page) that they track your IP address, supposedly so they can tell you if an unusual IP uses your e-mail. Curious as when I started using another computer at another location they never warned me about anything, though they continued to to track my IP... it takes a week to disable that if you even find out about it! http://www.cracked.com/article_19029_6-things-social-networking-sites-need-to-stop-doing.html?wa_user1=2&wa_user2=Tech&wa_user3=article&wa_user4=recommended

Gmail in Hell
- Perhaps free will soon not be an option. Then, again, the paid one I had a decade or 2 ago wasnt so great, earth something or other. Gmail obviously is oblivious to ease of use for signing up. It's like they're messing with u on purpose. This is a prime example of internet disempowerment. Gmail wouldn't know courtesy and ergonomics if it crawled up their collective kazoos and planted a garden!
