best free email compatable with outlook express

A friend has a talk talk account, we have given up on trying to configure it, she has hotmail but thats not compatatable with O.E. can anyone come up with one with a reasonable amount of storage space ?

Gmail. Click my yellow envelope if you would like an invite.

To Enable the TalkTalk e-mail service you have to initially get someone to send you an e-mail.

If you still have another e-mail account you can send one from this account to the TalkTalk account.

Configuration is the same as for other OE accounts, but also ensure that the POP and SMTP lines are correct, plus your e-mail address and chosen password, and that OE has been configured to Collect e-mail from TalkTalk (Accounts>Properties>Connection>Always Collect from..)

If you have a modem router connection it will be Collect from LAN).

The original [email protected] and password are only for logging onto the TT website.

I have an hotmail address and use Outlook Express to access it with no problem! I don't understand why you say it isn't compatible.
