I am so far from the phone exchange I can only get 516K BB - maybe, but I thought I would use it for my e-mails which I get by dial-up at the moment. My main broadband connection is by cable but I can only get webmail that way (I think) until I get my ISP to give me mail via BB.
you could set up a free email account which is independent of ISP from one or more from this list. presently I have yahoo hotmail and lycos. keep one for relations/friends etc another for shopping and another for silly things then you wont get spam on the good one say
