WWWOT: Anyone found a decent free email service w/ less spam

My wife and I are finally thinking of dumping AOL and moving to something else. I haven't ever used my AOL email address, but she has, and this will make the third time in the past few years she's had to let people know of a new email address.

Is there a free email service she could stick with that won't send her tons of spam? Altavista closed on her before. My Hotmail account gets a lot of spam, but I just use it as a filter (it's what I post everywhere and use on forms, but it's not the one I actually use most of the time). Anything better?

Thanks,

-Dave

I like yahoo, personally. Hotmail is full of crap. I've gotten virtually no spam with yahoo but I've also been sure to include NOSPAM in my email address whenever posting on a board.

My two cents...

I did an experiment - I set up two accounts, one on hotmail and one on yahoo. I never used either, but checked them every month or so to keep them active. The hotmail started getting non-microsoft spam almost immediately. The yahoo eventually got spam, but less of it.

...though this English major sees some irony in Yahoo's being the more "civilized" option. Fifty points to the one swift enough to ID the reference first.

I like the yahoo account also.

I have a ISP e-mail account that gets tons of spam, like 60 a day.

My question.

If you dump your service provider, AOL, how will you connect to the internet to read yuor yahoo free account?

I'm thinking of switching to a cheap ISP, joi.net. Anyone heard of them?

Thanks
