Help with new email programme!

Hi Folks

I have been using an email programme for 10-12 years, but I think it is on the way out! There are problems with it recently, repeatedly looking for user names/passwords and rejecting them; not sending some emails etc.

It is now owned I think by BT Ireland, but I read that they will probably phase it out. I have it set up through Windows Live Mail.

So Im wondering how do I go about getting a new email account. Is it good enough to use an online one such as Outlook or I have a gmail one but thousands of spam emails come to it.

My internet provider doesnt provide email hosting so if I wanted to use Mozilla or Windows Live Mail eg, how would I do that? Not sure I fully understand it!

Or are the online ones good enough?

many thanks

Use OUTLOOK , unlike GMAIL Microsoft has a commitment not to process the contents of your email to target advertising spam to you. You can find out this doing a search. Additionally use a number of email accounts for different purposes. In this way you can always close down any email account at any time without affecting others.
