£2.50pm to collect totalise email

I'm on freeserve broadband, but have many email addresses.

I've now had a mail from totalise saying that unless I log in using them as my ISP, I will no-longer be able to pick up my mail unless I pay £2.50pm for the privaledge.

Now I know that I'm currently using them for free, but £2.50 seems a bit steep. Is this the end of free email, will hotmail and yahoo follow suit, or are totalise in deep financial trouble?

Don't know about yahoo but hotmail have said that if you want more than 2mb for emails they will charge. I would suggest you cancel all your "many email" addresses and get yourself perhaps 2. One from your existing ISP and one other webmail address. I have NTL broadband with one POP3 address and also a hotmail address. Why do I need any more (it just means logging in to all my email addresses to see if I have any emails) which I can do without.

BT Internet do the same.

I just log-in every 89 days for 1 minute.
