E-mail...feckin ridiculous...mail.com

My e-mail address is at mail.com (NOT hotmail).
I mainly signed up here cause I didn't want an e-mail address with a number in it (i.e the_sweetest_thing27@hotmail.com). But I want the_sweetest_thing...

So, where was I? Ah yes. Mail.com--the most unreliable mail server on the planet. The site is ALWAYS down. Talk about a pain in the arse. I can never access my mail! All I want to do is check my mail but their system is down about 12 hours a day...

So, I meant to ask, what's a reliable mail server? Interference, hotmail, yahoo, _____???


Thanks...in advance

I've been using Hotmail for years, with many different e-mail addresses, and I've never had any problems with it. You get a bit of junk mail, but then again you do with every mail server. I've never seen the Hotmail server down or accidentally deleting mail or anything like that...although perhaps some fellow PLEBAns might beg to differ?

Well, according to the sysop at Zootopia, U2.com hopes to be offering email services in the future. Maybe that will be good.

I'm with hotmail - I used to think they were pretty reliable until they started deleting ALL my read messages with no notice, including important stuff. So I'm going with yahoo - they give you more space anyway

I've never had any problems with hotmail. I multiple accounts with them, and they all work great.

I use yahoo and hotmail and have never had any problems with either. Maybe I'm just lucky.
