Definitely HOTmail... Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesTotally FREE service, efficient mailing and huge amounts of storage space

DisadvantagesNone

"◄ MSN HOTMAIL ► Having already written a review on MSN Messenger, I thought I may as well go ahead and review MSN Hotmail, which is the free email service which runs in accordance with the instant messaging service. As I have just mentioned Hotmail is totally free service to anyone who signs up and makes an email account. Once this has been done, the user can send and receive mail to/from other Hotmail users and also users of ..." Read review

You have one new email

AdvantagesFree!! fast, great features, reliable, easy to access and navigate

Disadvantagesserver can sometimes get too busy, account expires after 30 days if not used

"...online via the hotmail or MSN website. Apparently hotmail is the world's largest provider of free, web-based e-mail which isn't really surprising as it is such an easy service to use. Hotmail allows anyone with a Hotmail account to read and receive e-mail messages from any computer in the world that has an Internet connection and a supported web browser that allows graphics, such as Internet Explorer 4.0 or later, or Netscape Navigator 4.08 or later. ..."

A Great Free Email Service

AdvantagesIts Free

DisadvantagesSpam

"...for the purpose of using MSN Messenger. At the time I opened the account Hotmail was a very basic service with only 2MB of storage space, don't get me wrong I am not complaining after all it is a free service but I found that I couldn't send or receive large attachments so I continued to use my ISP email address for these sort of things. The only thing wrong with this is that I could only access my emails from my own pc unlike Hotmail where ..." Read review

A GREAT FREE EMAIL SERVICE

AdvantagesFree Email

DisadvantagesSpam

"...member of any of the msn communities you are given 3MB of storage space. Hotmail also is your sign in for MSN Messenger where you can talk online to friends and family and also have your own space too. Some other things since i first joined is that there is now a calander service which is great as you can set it up to send you an email when an appointment is due etc, You can also keep a list of all your favourite contacts email addresses ..."

HOT HOT Hotmail!

Advantageslarge mailbox

Disadvantagesnone

"I love this service. They are by far the best email providers out there. They wont sell your email address or information and there is little down time. After having a Yahoo email account for many years I decided to open a Hotmail account for work purposes. I really like the size of the mail box youre given 5gb to start. You can fit so much in before you start having to delete. When youre starting to fill up they will increase your mailbox size ..." Read review

Not My emails....

Advantagesnothing in this day and age

Disadvantagesads, bad interface, spam, not much space for new users, everything else i couldnt think of

"...still use my hotmail for Msn Messenger and so still check the mail daily and everytime time i do all i have is 20+ of spam about viagra or nigerians. Also there ''Junk'' filter is rubbish mines set to max and i still get spam. My advice just don't bother with a hotmail account! instead there are many many free ones including Yahoo, Google, and lots of others. If you use MSN messenger now you don't even need a hotmail account to use it :-) am convinced ..." Read review

The HOT email!

AdvantagesGood interface, easy to use

DisadvantagesNot for the slow connection.

"Almost anyone who uses the internet has an account on hotmail.com or if not now, once had one. I wouldn't be wrong if I say hotmail was the pioneer of web based email. Hotmail is Microsoft's email service. Initially, it used to provide a few mb of space. But then as more and more companies like yahoo and google came into the race, hotmail has to increase its space to 5gb. The new interface of hotmail is really user friendly. It's as good as ..."

HOTMAIL

Advantageslinked in with msn, junk filter, virus checker

Disadvantagesslow, rife with problems

"I use hotmail an unbelieveable amount, due to it being tied into msn. Theres no installation, simply register. However be wary as guessable answers to secret questions opens you up to hackers, and there are plenty of them out there. Hotmail also seems to be the email spam artists favour, possibly due to it being free and easy to have multiple accounts. What I like about this product is that it alerts you ( tied in with msn) to a new email received. ..." Read review

Too much spam, and limited storage

AdvantagesYou can access your emails anywhere

DisadvantagesToo much spam, and limited storage

"Hotmail is a web-based email service provided by Microsoft. I used it for a couple of years but had to cancel my account as I seemed to be getting so much spam. I have used other web-based accounts since, particularly yahoo, and have never found the same amount of spam coming through to my inbox. One of Hotmail's selling points is that it provides 5GB of space, which I have to admit is quite a lot for a web-based email service, but why sign up ..." Read review

I know it's MSN...

AdvantagesEasy to use, accessible

DisadvantagesCan freeze-up, not much space given

"...but I still really like it. I find hotmail easy to use and fairly well laid out on the web page. However, I tend to use it synchronised with Outlook Explorer 5. This works fairly well most of the time, but on occasion, it will have a fit and decide not to do anything at all. On the whole this is an excellent package, especially when used with Outlook, however, not being able to delete messages when you want to can cause a problem until you get ..." Read review

Hot Male? hmmmm....

AdvantagesFree (for standard account), easy to use, integrated nicely with IE, and did i mention it was free?

Disadvantagesfor better features, you have to pay - and its microsoft....

"...with a little thing called MSN Messenger........but we won't go there. Comparing it to other email services, it comes out on top. Some, like G-Mail, might have more storage space, but overall you can't beat hotmail. The only bad points i would be able to come up with are that you need to check it every 30 days, or your account becomes inactive, and the fact that it is so popular, that servers sometimes are overloaded. Overall, the good far outweighs ..." Read review
