"Another.com free e-mail"

I recently registered with Another.com for free e-mail, and am really pleased with it so far.

For those who don't know what it's all about, Another.com is a free web based e-mail, which allows you to choose from thousands of domain names at which to have your e-mail address. The domain names are listed by category and there really is something to suit everybody.

For each free registration you can choose up to 20 different addresses, either all on the same domain name, or on different ones. All your e-mails received to any one of your addresses come in to the same inbox, and when you compose an e-mail you can choose which one of the addresses you are sending it from from a drop down menu.

One of the other big plus points for me is that this is one of few web based e-mails which doesn't display your full name when you send messages, unless you want it to. It is handy if you want to be anonymous for whatever reason, as you can just be known by your e-mail address - and when they can be personalised as much as this that is pretty good!

It has all the normal features: attachments, address books, folders etc. and the site is easy to navigate.

Another.com also offers products such as T shirts personalised with your e-mail address. I haven't tried any of these yet but they are a nice touch!

I have had one or two problems with logging in - server errors etc. but most of these have been resolved quite quickly and haven't presented a big problem as I don't use it as my main e-mail account.

    I too use another.com as a subsidiary email provider. Although not the best free email I have encountered, it offers a huge range of addresses, and provides all the usual trimmings. It also has the advantage of not being as 'clogged up' as hotmail,yahoo,lycosmail,etc. A good op, particularly as it was an early foray into the site,Bruce (bwsr2)
