Excellent

Easy to navigate, many options

none that I can think of!

Recently I searched the Internet for a good reliable email service as I changed from dialup to BT Broadband (which doesn't supply an email address........not to be confused with BT Openworld Broadband, which does supply email addresses!). Postmaster.co.uk struck me as a very promising website...

“THANKYOU POSTMASTER”

published 17/05/2003

Completely FREE, efficient, easy to use

A Few minor complaints

Ever been trawling through the internet, trying to find a really reliable, but FREE email provider? I used to, but I have been loyal to postmaster for a few years now, and recently they have lanched the newest version: postmaster 5, which they claim is more than an email system, but a feature...

“Any Post for the Master”

published 30/05/2003

Free, Many Features, Reliable

Sometimes slow

Postmaster.co.uk has been offering a free email service to Europe since about 1998, during which time many versions have been launched. Postmaster is currently on version 5, which was introduced only a few months ago. I started using postmaster about 8 months ago, before the update. At that time...

“Well worth a try”

published 02/08/2000

Effective service.

The frames can be a bit fiddly

My search for the perfect webmail account took me here pretty much when this started up, and so far I've been very pleased with this account - as have a number of friends and colleagues who have defected to this company. It's reliable, in that messages don't appear to get lost; messages arrive...

“Postmaster is the master”

published 12/01/2001

Easy to use

None

As just starting at college and using the internet more and more I decided it was about time to get myself an e-mail address. When asking for advice from the college technicians they told me to try postmaster and they were right. Postmaster is an easy to use e-mail service that anyone can learn...

“Say goodbye to Spam”

published 29/04/2004

Free, no spam

Can be slow

I've used various free email providers over the years, but Postmaster is the only one I've ever used which doesn't sell on to spammers. After getting fed up with 100+ junk messages a day on Hotmail, I decided to find a service that was more reliable as an overflow email for some of the email...

I think some of the flattering comments here were made by people from Postmaster. My God. ....Postmaster was pretty BAD when they were free. Now they want to be PAID for providing bad service.... Dont even think about it guys...Yahoo, Gmail etc are not just FREE but also 10 times better... I gave postmaster a 1 star cos that was the minimum I could give.

Making new friends was one of my favorite hobbies and I always wanted to have large number of pals. More so, I always wanted them to be in close proximity to me. However, long distances, people living in different cities and working schedule made it next to impossible for me to keep in touch with...

Extremely bad have been with for over 6 years and it just get worse and worse; now you even have to pay for it. If I did not need to keep my address I would leave now! Service is low level abuse and it crashes and does not work which they say 'does not happen' as all the crash pages go to an address which a few days later emails you back saying 'this address is no longer monitored'. PLEASE JUST DO NOT BOTHER go to a free site at least they work

Good

I do really like postmaster and I have been using it for about 7 ears now. Unfortunatelly they are about to become a "subscription only" service this august (2007). I think the management of this company has changed since it become the "Spider network" instead of Bibliotech and now they look at hings differently than they used to be. I remember Postmaster used to be the most user friendly Email service I have ever encountered. Unfortunately it is no longer the case.

Postmaster will no longer be free as of August 2007. Rubbish. The free service is a meagre 25MB as it is! Again, rubbish!

Great layout, easy nav

Known to crash

Postmaster is basically a european alternantive to the MSN controlled Hotmail service. Started a few years ago, as the first European free web-based email service, Postmaster has gone through a number of layout and design changes. Postmaster has an attractive, easy to use layout and navigation is...

Down for 5 days and the service has still not been restored. On top of this this is a pay service. Spider Networks provide a complaints/report a problem facilty for the postmaster.co.uk email servce but a waste of time as nobody every responds. Lets not forget constant spam thats never ending despite the block facility. dalayed mail delivery.......DO NOT USE POSTMASTER!!!! IT'S CRAPMASTER!!!!
