I use Outlook at the office and AOL dial-up at home. I'm about to get Verizon DSL at home. Verizon includes its own e-mail plus MSN Premium, which includes (I think) a flavor of Hot Mail called MSN Mail. I am wary of Hot Mail because of some things I've read in newsletters. However, Verizon charges $10 a month extra for web-mail access to my e-mail, so I'm seriously considering using MSN Mail. Are there things I need to know before signing up? This is for personal e-mail only.

I also have Outlook at home, which is unused right now because my wife and I use ACT. We may change over to Outlook and/or use MSN's Microsoft Outlook Live (MOOL). Paul Thurrott has a very good description of MOOL at http://www.winsupersite.com/reviews/mool.asp. Is anyone familiar with MOOL?
