Email on the road...
I was previously using beer.com for my email on the move. Sadly, it's been pretty unreliable, though, so I've had to switch to Yahoo.
This is a shame, 'cos I'm sad enough to think that a beer.com address was pretty cool. But it was bouncing mails sent to me, and those that did arrive were not becoming visible for an hour or two. Yahoo, though not cool, works fine.
Hotmail? Wouldn't touch it with yours, mate.
Anyone had any notable experiences, good or bad, with a free web-based email account?

I use Yahoo for one of my many e-mail accounts and it is rock solid. I've never had any problems with it, although I mainly use it as a backup these days.
The only fear I have is that they will take it away or, shock horror, make me pay for it.
I always thought that beer was the one of the few reliable constants in life, like death, taxes and nurses.
I use www.orange.net its free, plus you also get a text message when you get a new email, which is also free and you don't need to be an orange customer.
