    Hello,

    Do you know some good free web email account without sponsored links ? All of the most popular (gmail, hotmail, yahoo) have them.

    Regards,

    I don't think you'll find one. They need to get paid somehow, don't you think? If you do find one without ads, it's getting paid some other way, like perhaps with spyware or hidden adware... I have no problem with ads when using Yahoo! Mail. I think it's normal and have gotten used to it. Ads are a part of our "free" Internet. If you want to keep it free, you must accept it.

    Gmail is by far the best. I have no problems with the sponsored links above my emails. Do you really ever notice them.

    Complaining about about something that is free is like kicking a gift horse in the mouth.

    The companies need to have a revenue method.

    However, what I like about Gmail is that they don't inject sponsored ads into your actual emails. I know Yahoo! or AOL does that sometimes. I receive an email from someone using their service and I see ads inside the actual emails, which is far worse than sponsored links on the side (which these services have also).

    Anyway, you probably won't find a free email service without ads.

    I see you have Adblock Plus installed, so you can block the ads if you want.

    I forward my Yahoo mail (set up in Yahoo preferences so it's automatic) to my Gmail with no problems and that works fine. As others have said, one hardly notices the ads after a few times using Gmail.

    I have found one without adds, it is GMX:http://gmx.com/ The only inconvenient is they don't have any notifier.

    If I use Adblock on Gmail account it doesn't work.

    For me yahoo account in Gmail doesn't work. I have report this problem but without any help.

    So, your complaint is the actual webpage itself being cluttered with
    ads. Not that individual emails have advertising?

    Pretty sure you won't find web email without ads on their own web
    pages. I don't like individual emails that come in with advertising.
    Incredimail has the worst but I delete them all before replying.

    Yes, I mean that account page has adds and not individual messages. And I have found one account without adds. It is gmx: http://gmx.com/.

    You won't see the ads if you use a regular email client on your computer.

    Yes, I know. But I don't want to use extra programs to install to read my e-mails.

    If you are satisfied with gmx...OK. If not, you really don't have
    to install an email client (unless you now have Windows 7).

    XP has Outlook Express.
    Vista has Windows mail.

    Just another option.

    The only problem with gmx is they don't have notifier.
    E-mail client for me is not solution because I am using 2 computers so I will have to install 2 e-mail clients and they will be different. It will be confusing for me.
