    mail organiser program


    Im currently having problems with Mozilla mail since the incoming TCP port for Mozilla mail on hotmail has now been filtered which makes it next to impossible for me to receive email.
    Could anyone suggest to me some decent mail organising programs that would make an ideal substitute ???

    cheers

    I've had no (recent) problems with nerdshack/mailshack. It's a completely free/anonymous service with no ads, 100MB, POP3/SMTP, and webmail. I had some problems early on, but since they've moved to new servers everything's been fine. The one thing I can't speak to is speed, since I'm on dialup, but the logins are fast.

    I know it's hard to decide to switch email providers, but you know Microsoft is going to continue to take advantage of that fact to the fullest.

    Im actually seeking a mail organising program (in other words a linux substitute for Microsoft outlook) rather than just a regular web-based mail account.

    Sorry, I think we both started giving suggestions because getting hotmail to work with an MUA is pretty futile these days unless you pay for their faux-POP support. Even if you do that, I think you still need either an MUA plugin or seperate MTA to bring it in since, last I checked, they use a somewhat proprietary protocol that isn't widely supported.

    So my suggestion is, either shell out the cash and get one of these hack MTA's, or switch to a better email provider. I set one of these up in a Java VM on a friend's Windows computer (back before they started charging, not sure of it's status), and I think it should work with Linux too. I'll look it up tomorrow when I'm over there.

    But then, I may be talking out my ass. I haven't had a need to fiddle with it lately, and things could have changed drastically.
