    My email service - mailandnews.com - is closing down in February. It has been a great ad-free mail place that had newsgroup service, WAP access, POP3 access, and even 1-800 access to email - all for free.

    I will miss it.

    SO, I need everyone's help to find a new email home. :) I want a place that will last for awhile and preferably has little or no advertisement.

    Space requirements aren't too much of an issue but a few megs would be nice... POP3 would be really nice, but I know that's hard to come by in a free service.

    I look forward to hearing your responses!!!
    Thanks!

    I'm sort of looking for a web-based service that had little advertising, is not a spam-magnet (like hotmail), and has a nice clean interface.

    An example of what I'm looking for is: www.shymail.com
    The only reason I don't like shymail is that its fairly unreliable. And its interface is a bit whacked. But its a nice clean simple, relatively ad-free service...

    Any suggestions?

    Savvy Lady, Is 'pagusus' an email client or an email service??

    You know I had a law school professor that said there is no such thing as a free lunch! I think in today's environment, he would change it to there is no such thing as free e-mail ;)

    Incredimail is an e-mail browser. It isn't a e-mail service.

    Pop3 mail server + reliability - too much adverts= (I think) would be Yahoo. You can have as many accounts as you want and is seldom down.

    I agree with Muldars Law school professor analogy. If a sight says it's free and you don't get any ads... I'd start checking my computer for nasty addware, cookies and registery changes. ;)
