hello,

since some months I have problems with both my email accounts. Providers are EMAIL.IT and YAHOO.
Emails arrive with very serious delays. It's unbearable.

Can you suggest me a reliable email provider?

Thanks

Thank you Kurt,

is Google account really reliable?
My problem is not really MB space.
I just cannot afford to get my emails 24 hours late!
Have you ever had this kind of problem?
How long are you using google as email account?
thx

Buy web space - mail is included. Jul 22, 2004

Can you suggest me a reliable email provider?


Having tried lots of free and paid email services in Belaris (out of patriotic reasons) I went to www.wmhosting.net and bought 25 meg of space, a domain name and (among more things) an unlimited number of email addresses: anyname@mydomain.net. Server uptime is 100%, I have control over everything, no programing knowledge required. This particular hosting targets Russians, but it is actually a re-seller of an American hosting company, which is indicated on their home page. I would recomment this.
Oops! Nearly forgot - it's 19.73 a year.

webspace - I agree Jul 22, 2004

Yes - get some webspace - I recommend www.34sp.com. Very responsive and helpful people (UK based). You get 30Mb webspace and 10 e-mail addresses for about £15 per year. And while you'll probably be configuring MS Outlook or some other programme to retrieve your e-mail on your main system, the 34sp service includes a webmail interface, so you can get your e-mail anywhere in the world.

I don't think having a free e-mail address such as Gmail or freemail.com sends out a very professional image to clients.

freemail vs paid e-mail Jul 22, 2004

Molly,

I've been using google (gmail) for about two months now. I haven't had any problems with it. The flow of e-mail seems to be very responsive.

Not so sure I agree with the comment about poor image regarding free e-mail services. That may indeed turn off some potential clients, but I think for the most part people are going to care whether or not they can get their files to you in a timely fashion, and if you're going to turn in a quality product by the deadline.

Cheers,
Kurt
