Free email hosts...

Free email hosts...

Post by Void Main »

Does anyone know of any Linux related free web based email hosts (like "linuxmail.org")? Linuxmail.org has really been giving me troubles...

yeah?
i noticed it was fairly slow but have had no huge problems that i haven't encountered at every other free email provider. i plan to stick with linuxmail.org until they start charging (as so many of the best free email providers have done).

My sister told me a couple of months ago that her one was rejecting incoming emails even though she was nowhere near using up her quota of space, but i and my girlfriend haven't noticed any huge problems. with linuxmail.org.

Bah, I just created a YaHoo account. Been a day now and no spam yet but I'm sure it will start rolling in. At least they are pretty reliable.

You can get a POP3 account from Belg88.com with a webbased front-end for free from a certain guy who is extremly nice (well, me :D). Although I doubt you want to taint your good name with such a horrid site such as mine (I just reread the content on it, and I noticed my last two updates were done terribly...).

Thanks for the offer Quirk! I'll keep that in mind. It seems linuxmail.org is behaving well again and I still have not received a single spam message in my YaHoo mailbox. That has to be a new record as that is *all* I get in my other YaHoo mailbox that I've had since YaHoo started!

I think i seen somthing to do with Linuxmail on /. which could have made it slow.

Yahoo is pretty good with not having spam.

I use Yahoo and Lycos, as well as linuxmail, as long as you are sensible with your e-mail, like me, you should be relatively spam free (five in lycos and zero in yahoo since I set them up), unlike many other services where you are spammed from day one.

i get nigerian money laundering emails in my linuxmail.org inbox but only occasionally, and i can always block them. i think it's my fault anyway, i am sure i posted my email address with no obfuscation on some forum way back when :?

I don't remember having any problems with linuxmail or Yahoo. The latter is great when it comes to spam mail. :)

Ok void main all knowing linux master. You told me you owned a domain name or two, and you have a webserver, and you are really good with linux, so why dont you start your own mail server. Ive been thinking about doing this myself.

I do have several domains, and I run several mail servers, and I have several email addresses that come into my private mailbox, and have many customers who I provide mail services for. However, "Void Main" is an anonymous side of me and I want anonymous email to go with it. If I use email accounts from my own servers that would sort of give things away. I certainly don't have anything to hide but I am a little more free willed as "Void Main" and if I CeNsOrEd anyone off I don't want them coming to the "real" me. :)
