email probs with hotmail and aol

  daisy2bell 08:45 15 Dec 2005

With both aol and hotmail taking security too far by blocking certain email addresses, I am increasingly not recieving email from people .
Is there another system like hotmail, which is reliable (must be free), but does not go wild on security.

Would you like a gmail account? I have lots of invites left.

Bear in mind that whatever email service you are using - emails sent to AOL and Hotmail addresses may still be blocked at the recipients end.

I can receive emails from AOL and Hotmail addresses on my email address but I CANNOT get replies to AOL and Hotmail accounts to get to the recipient. They keep bouncing back to me.

Yes, I would like to give that a try
