I have recently opened a Lycos freebie email account, previously had Hotmail for a number of years. My question is - does anyone else use Lycos, and if so do they find that the opening of a new or stored email takes nearly a whole lifetime?
I have no problems with anything else. My computer is certainly not overloaded and therefore getting slow. I've only been with Lycos a couple of weeks and I'm getting impatient with it.
Oh, one other thing - is Lycos and Yahoo compatable, a friend who is with Yahoo cannot seem to make contact with me. Many Thanks.
I have a lycos account and often find it very slow; sometimes it doesn't want to work at all. Is it something to do with a security package you have installed? I have McAffe (spelt?) Internet Security Suite installed and for some reason i can't read emails (they open as normal but without text) when the "privacy service" is enabled.
I've had a Lycos free email account for about 4 or 5 years now, & find it great. Only once in all this time could I not reach their website. I originally created the address with 'mailcity', which was bought by Lycos, but still let me use mailcity in my email address. I have 56k dialup & set cookies to prompt, so that takes time, but Lycos seems to be fine. -T
