Okay, so I’m a bit behind the blogtimes here, but I just wanted to chime in and say that OddPost is da bomb. It’s a mail service that — gasp — isn’t free, but it’s worth every penny a day that the $30/year amounts to.
30 megs of space. Drag and drop e-mail. Fast fast interface. No ads.
There are, I admit, a few downsides to it: currently no filtering at all, doesn’t work with EVERY system (and in fact requires IE 5.0 to work), and it gets a little depressing seeing all the free Hotmail terminals at airports.
But overall, I give it a big thumbs up, and have already personally registered. Give it a try: there’s a free 30-day demo.
