I've recently been using http://www.e247.com as my web-based email service. I liked the fact that they offered a pretty healthy amount of storage and looked pretty nice. However, after using it I'm getting frustrated by it's rather frequent downtimes and requests to log in again as well as some other missing features. For example, when you send an email you have to hit OK; it doesn't give you an option to automatically go to the next message after deleting the current message (you have to first hit OK, then click inbox). It also seems to be java-based, which seems pretty slow to me.
Can anyone recommend a good service. I've used hotmail and yahoo and they are okay, but I'm sure there are better free mail accounts out there.
