Mail Servers - 08/08/01 07:41 AM

This topic has come up before on other forums, but with things often changing and new services appearing (and disappearing) frequently, I was wondering about folks' opinions here at MacMinute.<br><br>My question to everyone is this: What mail server(s) do you use and what features about it (them) do you like?<br><br>For example: AOL<br> Hotmail<br> Yahoo<br> just your ISP<br> mailandnews.com<br> operamail.com<br> mac.com<br> myrealbox.com<br> etc.<br><br>Some offer web access but nothing else. Some offer POP and/or IMAP access, along with web access (or maybe without). Some offer the abillity to send mail as different identities, when using the web based access. Some have calendaring and other file features. So forth and so on.<br><br>So what do you all use? And why?<br><br>

I have 4 mail accounts.<br>1. My account at work. It is run off of a 840 AV (haha!) This supports POP access only right now. It get's the job done (text, html, and attachments).<br>2. Yahoo. Main account. Web and POP. I can't send a message without recieving my messages first (or attempting to). The SMTP also dosn't support athentication, how dumb!!<br>3. Mac.com. Set it up, uses POP only, never sent or recieved a message through it before!<br>4. Hotmail. I just use this through the web browser, to delete spam. This is my spam account only. If I sign up for something, I give them this address!<br><br>[color:red]-- John Bailey</font color=red> ( [color:red]Bdog</font color=red> )<br><br>[color:blue]Email Me!</font color=blue> [email] [color:green]bdog_111@yahoo.com</font color=green> [/email]

I have only three accounts.<br><br>Mny work account, which I use only when I'm at work, but which I forward to my mac.com account so I can get the mail at home.<br><br>My ISP account, which I'm now forced to use because they won't allow smtp verification.<br><br>My mac.com account, which I can use when I'm in X, but now when I'm in 9.1. The odd thing is that my son, connected via router and ethernet hub to the same DSL ISP, can use his mac.com account without a problem.
