I need to setup a free e-mail account for a friend of mine who doesn't have regular internet access. It's very important that this account (unlike hotmail and maybe others) doesn't expire after a certain period of inactivity. Stable service is another important issue - I've been trying to reach Yahoo Mail all morning with no result and I think such experience would be very annoying for someone using the public internet access points. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance.

I use www.gmx.net
20mb free space

I'm not sure about the inactivity part though.

lycos? Jul 12, 2004

I have a lycos address (15 mb web space) but I don't really use it, so I can't tell you if it's reliable or not. Anyway, I never had a problem with yahoo mail (100 mb now)

Try everyone.net Jul 12, 2004

We have received good feedback on the ProZ.com-branded free email at everyone.net. It gets less spam and has less of a delay before mail from ProZ.com will appear than do hotmail, yahoo and aol.

One complaint that we have seen is that there are problems with double byte characters. I am not sure whether or not this is still the case.

To try it, go to: http://proz.mail.everyone.net

netcourrier.com (but it's French ) Jul 12, 2004

I'm very satisfied with netcourrier.com - but I don't know if they have an English interface. You can jave a look at www.netcourrier.com

I have an extra account on myway.com and it's been extremely reliable. Never had spam in my inbox in two years!
