"Consumers who currently use such addresses may well be better off using a more conventionally based email address"

I was wondering what a more conventionally based email address is. Do they mean a Tiscali, NTL, etc email address perhaps? Yahoo and Hotmail addresses seem pretty conventional to me.

I think it may be because they are web based services that allow remote access rather than the more conventional server based which cannot. I could be wrong.
