1GB free e-mail space? I'll probalby sign up. ESPECIALLY if they let me access my mail through my Mac Mail client without a fee. I think yahoo charges me $20/yr for that privilege.<br><br>What's the catch?<br><br>

They scan your email for keywords and insert related advertising into your emails.<br><br>

Yeah, that's OK by me. I'd rather have personalized advertising anyway. I don't have much use for viagara or credit counciling.<br><br>

From what I understand there is no POP or IMAP access, its only web based.<br><br>

You can get 1Gig free email at spymac, and they don't insert ads as far as I know, and you can use your own POP client.<br><br>

Correct. Spymac does not insert ads and you can use POP or web mail. <br><br>
