Need email recommendations

So i need to get a new email account. I want something that is web accessible as well as pop or imap (prefer pop) accessible. I really want something that isn't going to get overloaded with spam too. I don't care if I have to pay a yearly fee. What's the best out there?

If it's still invite only (can't remember/too lazy to check), send me a PM with your current email address and I'll send you one.

Yep, this is THE way to go. Ownership of your own domain gives you the right to setup email addresses based on where you're entering 'details'

for instance, i signup at quicken as [email protected]_url_I_own.com
at others, I signup as f*[email protected]_url_I_own.com

When I start getting emails sent to
f*[email protected]_url_I_own.com
I write the owner back with a 'cease and desist' email and that usually puts a stop to it.

for the ladies, you can always setup '[email protected]_url_I_own.com'

When google starts charging you for storing your emails online, you'll have no choice but to stick with them.


Also, they ARE making money with 'contextual advertising' (which frankly, gives me the creeps) and so, when my girlfriend opened up an email about someone who was being a bitch, an ad popped up for PMS drugs.

When you own your own domain, you can use web-hosted email or a dedicated email. I use a combination of Eudora and web-based.

Good luck.

Not at all.

http://gmail.google.com/mail/help/ab...l#targeted_ads

Quote:
Google believes that showing relevant advertising offers more value to users than displaying random pop-ups or untargeted banner ads. In Gmail, users will see text ads and links to related pages that are relevant to the content of their messages. The links to related pages are similar to Google search results, and are culled from Google's extensive index of web pages. They are selected solely for their helpfulness and are not paid advertisements.

haha, I just went to check my Gmail....I've not used it since March of '05, and my first E-mail is 12/17/04.

I'm really surprised that I remembered my login...I remember I wanted to lock in [email protected] so nobody else would steal it.

Gmail is the best email on the internet. The spam blocker is amazing, I rarely get spam in my inbox. The only problem with gmail is that it doesn't support IMAP (just POP) and I don't like POP because it defeats the purpose of having 3GB of storage on gmail's server if you use POP.
