    Hi, I've recently started using Outlook and am having trouble with my Yahoo email accounts as they do not allow messages to be sent from the Outlook client without payment. Looking for another large email supplier, but one which allows emails to be written AND sent from the client. Which one can you recommend please? Gmail, hotmail, another? Thanks! EDIT - Also if they could also work with Thunderbird on Linux that would be a bonus.

    gmail SUCKS thru pop3. There is rumored imap4 support now, but I don't see it on my account yet so I have been unable to try it.

    Get a REAL email acct.

    Gmail is the best free one, from what I've used

    Getting a domain and hosting isn't really an option as I want to use some of them for signing up for spam type places, and don't like the thought of malware being sent to my server, plus the whole domain reg/domains by proxy effort. IMAP is good? Thanks! gmail is winning so far.

    its a slow piece of shit.

    and if you log into the webmail interface its a fucking mess after using pop3.

    They need to get with the program, stop being fuckheads that want things done their own way, and do TRADITIONAL folders, then IMAP can sync GRACEFULLY.
