Hotmail -- an alternative?

  driving man 18:59 13 Dec 2006

Am at present using AOL 9a and also have tried Hotmail in order to get I different addresses. Plus AOL hates business use. However Hotmail seems to be tempramental so was wondering if there is another free program I could try

Hi, I have been using hotmail for six years, never had any problem with it (my ISP is BT).
I think in your case, the problem probably stems from AOL. I have never used AOL, but several friends have, they changed on my advise and lived happily ever after.

For doing emails I always advise Incredimail which I use. Free download at click here

ps - the only thing with Hotmail, you must use it at least once every 30 days, otherwise you have to start from scratch again. Unless you have the paid for version, which is less than £20 per year - well worth paying for IMHO.
