    Email Accounts


    Folks i need an email account that works with pop3 which is also free and has loads of inbox space. I use hotmail at the moment and it is good as it has 250Mb of space but they won't let me use pop3 without paying there stupid subscription charges

    Any ideas on an alternative email client or should i just wait for gmail to be released to the public

    gmail is cool. I think yahoo does not offer pop3 access, I know for a fact that yahoo.co.uk addresses have pop3 forwarding, not sure about the .com.

    edit: hehe, AlexK: 'only has 1 gig of space'

    Dude, I have both gmail and yahoo. infact i have multiple gmail accounts which i use as an extension of my hard drive (I can mount my gmail accounts onto my linux system). So, my total email capacity is close to 10 gigs. beat that.

    strange, i get pop3 access from yahoo.com.au. Its the only way i can keep track of all my accounts, via pop3.

    Re:

    On this topic one question comes to mind. Why is it that gmail gives you 2 gigs worth of space, but only allows attachments to be so large?? Typically I find that I can fit at least 4 mp3s in one email. But anything larger simply gets denied..Dang

    My understanding is it is due to bandwidth restrictions.
    Can't have people e-mailing 1 GB packages for free.
