Hi guys;

May I have some opinions from you here about free-web-based email service?

Currently I'm using hotmal/yahoo/gmail but as of the moment "cannot" access my yahoo/hotmail accounts. Only the gmail works fine. I'm looking for a safe,secure free email service like gmail that has the capability to be used with Thunderbird and MS Outlook'07.

I tried out fastmail but was saddened to know you can receive mail via Thunderbird but you cannot send outgoing messages.

Can you recommend me a safe/secure web-based email service alternate to hotmail/yahoo mail/ that can be used with Thunderbird/Outlook 07?

Thank you!

Hi tg1911;
