  2. Luca Azim [1] opinó:
    Free and safe also has encryption which is safe

  3. @SouthOkanagan on Twitter [1] opinó:

    MAIL.COM is FREE, it’s awesome because you can choose from literally HUNDREDS of domains to make your new email address under! Here are a few: and tons of job, fun, countries, music (and over 170 more) categorized domains!
    MAIL.COM even gives you FREE imap & pop3 thirdparty email client (i.e. Thunderbird, Outlook) access using your login ID & password!
    Plus, you can make sub-addresses under your main MAIL.COM address or make them all separate/new accounts each time, it’s totally up to you but I suggest creating one really good account name, then create sub-addresses underneath it, it’ll be much easier for you to keep track of your addresses that way!
    But if you’re an email account hoe like I am (over 90 current and active (some I use regularly & some I have parked for occasions where I might need them) accounts throughout the internet,,,,, etc etc).

    I hope you enjoy the FREE MAIL.COM service as much as I have over the years!

    (If you liked my tip about please come & see my youtube page & videos!)

    Yahoo! Mail is the best. It’s fast and has the best look. There is a lot of spam but it all gets filtered out. So my choice is Y! Mail, Hotmail, and in that order(But Yahoo is way out of the others leagues!).

    Sabse sada hua mail server,,or nahi jhel sakta

  2. rakesh [2] opinó:
    it is worst mail server.not working properly every day

  3. Bob opinó:

    Hotmail – Came to log in and got a message telling me that for security reasons I needed to provide a code which they would send to my second account. Did what they required to send the code, then logged on to my second account only to find a similar message about that one, with them saying that they would send a code to the first account – Catch22.
    Found another method of restoring the accounts in which Hotmail required me to provide proof of ownership by supplying recently sent addresses, subject headings, etc, etc. With much trouble I gathered all of the info required but they sent back saying that they wouldn’t or couldn’t re-establish my email service.
    I lost masses of info along with lots of contacts, etc.
    Totally disgusted. I would NOT recommend Hotmail or Outlook to anyone. Have now gone elsewhere.

  4. Anonymous opinó:

    Hotmail. The new “Outlook” is literally unusable. You have to close and reopen the program for every single action (like reading one e-mail or sending one e-mail Hotmail is now internet garbage.

    Opera mail
    I can’t send an e mail. And I have to install the application unlike gmail or others.

  8. Barbara Cecchini [1] opinó:

    AOL. Once someone steals your email AOL does very little to help recover it. The thieves put a 2 part authentication that neither AOL or Amazon seem to be able to recover.

  9. Peter opinó:

    Yahoo is the worst email client ever, glitches, not working properly, everything is just terrible

  10. Anonymous opinó:


    they locked me out of my account. I tried to restore it by filling out a form with additional informations. Didn’t work. By sending a code to my phone. Didn’t work.

  11. Lou [1] opinó: The service still runs (why) and looks just like email did in the 90’s. It also has bugs like not updating inbox cache. You delete all of the junk and then notice you have new mail but when you open the inbox all you see is the deleted junk, not the new email. The service used to be decent but it’s mostly neglected and buggy now so not worth the time or bother.

  12. Puneet [1] opinó:

  13. INDER opinó:


  14. Mark Anthony opinó:

    Yahoo is the worst email service in the world. Period.

  15. Jo Anne opinó:

    I’ve been using for Yahoo in eight years until now: all the nightmare of ads, monthly payment for ad free and the worst. Spam/junk folders makes me nauseous whilst I’ve seen them then delete immediately. Before I’m going to buh-bye my old account, I f%#€ you Yahoo – you’re nothing as a sleaziest and lying email service!

  16. Dan Li [1] opinó:

    Of-course #1 worst is Yahoo, on top of not work very well, all personal info attached to email account will be turned over to communist China (Yahoo is now more of a Chinese company than American company), they have done these kind of evil things in the past(causing some people who criticize communist end up in communist prison for 10 years!) , so it is a fact. Just this one action alone should make Yahoo the unchallenged champion of the worse email provider. Which other email service can make you end up in prison?

  20. Diana T [1] opinó:


    I had one issue that never got fixed: every email I received was sent to trash.
    customer support did answer with the official “bla bla” email, but no real support was offered.
    – customer support does not really exist.

    user interface is making it harder and slower to access the emails.
    – not user friendly at all.

    I have over 100 blocked addresses because the yahoo spam filter does not do the job.
    And I was still forced to changed my email provider because of the large amount of spam still coming in my inbox.
    – no spam protection.

    Actually yahoo forced me to change the email provider and I have to thank them for that 🙂

  21. Some Random Guy opinó:

    Yahoo sucks. Lag, horrible spam filters, useless security checks, lag, constant server crashing, and any GIFs or pictures take forever to render.

    Did I mention lag?

  22. yahoo.como

  23. Raquel [1] opinó:

    Yahoo. The timing is completely off, it’s slow, it’s always lagging. A hundred of the buttons or links to compose an email or see mail never work half the time. It’s just a pain in the butt all of it.

  24. CHintan [1] opinó:

    Yahoo mail is the worst email service i have ever seen.

  25. j.r. [1] opinó: their security is a joke. you will be immediately vulnerable…and customer service is took them a week to respond to a single inquiry and then were unfeeling and unresponsive to my issues…sty far away from this scamming company who preys on people wishing more private email.

  26. svj opinó: – is the worst e-mail service provider in the earth. horrible, pathetic services they will provider. & they are link with Big group TATA. bt still they have 3rd class service. and if u send them mail then the will never reply you. i hv send at least 6-7 reminder, bt no answer. my email is not working for last 10-15 days. they also provide u only 5 MB data size. that is ridiculous. if any one uses then pls stop it other wise they will stop u.

    The new yahoo mail sucks! They took away function, functions that worked perfectly in the old version, now have problems, user interface is terrible, support completely went away, and despite thousands of users protests to go back to the old version which everyone liked and it worked just fine, the arrogant SOBs just won’t yield. The addage, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, could not be more true than here. Management at Yahoo should all be fired.

I signed on one day and found weird new contacts and a chat box at the bottom that was in the middle of a conversation from another computer. And I make really hard passwords to guess. Usually 25 characters long with capital and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols like !@#$%^&*(). Yahoo is not safe for anyone.

    Hotmail is certainly the worst option. Although it is robust and somewhat powerful, I receive more SPAM and viruses from hotmail accounts than from any other. Of course, my SPAM filter detects them, but I’m curious and poke in the SPAM folder. Many times, I receive mails with ads from people I know personaly, who have hotmail accounts. When I ask them, they are unaware. So hotmail is completely unsafe and harbours tons of worms.

It was heinous, they simply did not care that they inconvenienced their users at whatsover. They are stupid, greedy, corporate pigs. It’s sad really, used to be a nice alternative with a snappy name, now it’s unusable trash. I switched to Gmail and have never looked back. I hope Excite, and their Corporate mentor Blue Tie (just look up their company president to see a real prat) rot in Hell forever.

    EXCITE. Been a member there since 1997. Email was generally flawless until they so called “up-graded” . Now they inject ads into my emails which causes the browser to refresh every time a new add loads. Logging in is a night mare. Getting the new app to even load is even a bigger nightmare. Works one day with FireFox and not the next. Works one day with IE, and not the next. Fugg’ these thoughtless jerks. It wasn’t an email upgrade, it was a recode to jam ads in our face, at the cost of a email app that was perfectly fine. Greedy fuks…. I’ll open an account elsewhere and spread the word about you.
