What the hell is POP3? (hotmail users read this)

IS THIS YOU : you wait for half an hour to connect to the internet, then open hotmail.com and wait for another half an hour for you account to open (if you're lucky), then scroll down and try to see if you've got any new messages and then finally open your new messages. If yes, you might want to read this.
 
POP3 helps you do half of that.

POP3 uses your email application (Outlook Express, Netscape Mail, Eudora etc etc) to get your mail. ALL you need to do is configure it. How do you do that? First, check if your mail service has POP3 (check above). Yes, hotmail doesn't have POP3. In fact, it's so damn slow, that once you've started using POP3, you'll wonder why you used HOTMAIL in the first place. And if you're beginning to worry, please note that THIS WON'T MAKE YOUR COMPUTER CRASH OR SUDDENLY DIE OF A VIRUS ATTACK. Once, you know that your mail service is POP3 enabled, just configure it using the below settings:

@usa.net
Incoming mail server : pop.netaddress.com
Outgoing mail server : 202.54.15.1

@mypad.com
Incoming mail server : mypad.com
Outgoing mail server : 202.54.15.1
Username : your email address

If you still have problems, email me.

Which one should I take?

If you're asking me the best out of all of them, not even Bill Gates could give a correct answer. But after looking up more than 15 different web sites regarding free email services, this is the general opinion:

The best ones :
 
Forfree you@forfree.at
Netaddress you@usa.net
MyOwnMail you@collegemail.com, you@schoolmail.com, MORE
MailCity you@mailcity.com
WoWmail you@wowmail.com
 
The ones to avoid :
 
Starmail you@michaeljordon.com, you@backstreet-boys.com, MUCH MORE
MailExcite you@mailexcite.com
Yahoo! you@yahoo.com
Hotmail you@hotmail.com

If you have registered yourself with any of the above, most probably, HOTMAIL, you may be offended. However, before you decide to spam me with hate mail, I suggest you try another service first. If the feeling still lasts, here is my email address.
