know the problem. Instant messaging is working ok - so I know I've got 4 new emails - but I can't get into bl**dy hotmail. Torture for the 21st century. They're probably all from Homebase advertising 2% off ride-on lawnmowers if you get there between 8.04 and 8.07 on Saturday morning anyway, but...

Apparently Eudora is free and excellent. No spam, either. I don't know if it has instant messaging though, I haven't tried it myself. Yahoo's free too, but as much spam as hotmail. Freeserve's free - but crap. if you're interested. It says something about downloading software, haven't looked too closely, but my brother seems to be able to access his eudora email from wherever he is.

now looked more closely, and it's like outlook, on your desktop rather than webmail.

Guess not so good if you're surreptitiously trying to access email from work. Have no idea how my brother accesses it from his house and our parents'.

Try the following, havent looked at the addresses but its some where to start

msn search results

Who's your ISP? I use BTOpenWorld, and every lunchtime I log on to and access my email account from there. No matter how many times I view the emails in the inbox they aren't wiped. It's only when you download them via Outlook that they are moved from the account inbox, to the Outlook inbox.

The online email is far quicker than hotmail, and they have online virus checkers, which is handy. I would have thought that any ISP worth their salt would offer this kind of service.

you don't need a web-based email account

do u have a POP3 account? (one that the email is downloaded into outlook)
then go to where you can check ur email online no matter who the provider is and what type of account it is. The emails remain on the email server until they are removed by downloading into outlook. You can also send emails via mail2web

Not that this will help Mr B, but I use hotmail with a spam filter, I never have any trouble getting into any of my 3 acounts or using messenger

I use hotmail too, the mind boggles at some of the subject headings I receive....

Barkles, I used to insist on having a free ISP, and I tried lots, but it's the same as any other product: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

So..... bit the bullet and joined aol. Narrowband is £15.99 a month with genuine unlimited access and no hidden charges; broadband £27.99. I would NEVER go back to any of my previous free ones.

May be worth a go Sassie, but can't get broadband out here in the sticks....
