    Hi,

    I use offline mail (Outlook PST) & use Yahoo! since they're a a leading provider for mail and their POP is free + works very well.

    Gmail do the same with IMAP, but IMAP isn't as reliable as POP for download.

    Recently I'm getting problems with Yahoo! via the web. A funny 999 message about too many users & sometimes mailbox items not accessible for hours.

    Here's my question:

    Is there another free mail provider with the reputation of Yahoo! which also offers POP for free & is reliable & recommended?

    Thanks!

    -Alan

    Gmail gives you the option of either IMAP or POP. I download my Gmail messages into Outlook via POP and it works very well.

    As you can see by now, Alan, I moved your question so others who frequent this forum can get a chance to comment to you. Not everyone visits the Scuttlebutt forum on a regular basis. - Al

    Hotmail now provides POP access.
