For free POP or webmail, everyone here should know by now that I like :)

You'll need your own SMTP though, for sending, via Simplemail. Eudoramail
only has POP available for non-web clients. You can use Newtscape to send
or read your eudoramail inbox, via the web though.

The free server should work with Simplemail and it's IMAP settings,
as well- and for PDAs, IMAP makes a little more sense sometimes (but I
don't use it :) I guess if yahoo is going to be fee-based soon (I got that
email too) I'll set up as the backup for my backup email (which
yahoo was previously).


The reply-to: field for this email reflects this change.
