Webmail: Free, Simple Domain Name Spelling, and Nested Folders?
« on: September 08, 2006, 06:38:00 PM »
Hi,

I'm looking for free webmail with the characteristics I've listed below.  I'd like to establish a long term webmail provider (long-term=lifetime) so such things as organizational flexibility for mail storage is crucuial (see #3).

1.  Free (or at least very cheap)

2.  A simple, strightforward domain name (I once had an email address at Ureach, e.g. XYZ@Ureach.com:  when I told someone what my email address was I had to spell out the 'ureach' so that they wouldn't send it to 'youreach':  'xyz@yahoo.com' is a perfect example of a simple, straightforward domain name)

3.  Nested folders, i.e. a storage system that can accomodate a hierchy of folders within other folders.  The flat hierchy of folders that services like Gmail and Yahoo provide will, eventually, become cumbersome.

4.  Large Capacity (250MByte at least)

5.  Long-term viability, i.e. no fly-by-night providers.

I know that I have some potentially conflicting requirements.  From what I've seen here at DC you guys can deliver the goods (if anyone can). 

Thanks.

the flat folder heirarchy was my biggest gripe with gmail for the longest time, as I've traditionally been a very tedius mail organizer.  All these years and tens of thousands (or maybe hundreds of thousands) of messages later I only use organization (in any form) very losely and only for fairly specific frequently-accessed things.  Everything else I find is much faster to access via search than a tight folder organization could provide.

That said, I can't really help you here. I'm pretty out of the loop where current webmail clients are concerned, have been locked into gmail.

The nested folders are the problem :( - How about getting some cheap Webspace, a Domain and running your own Webmail Client? squirrelmail Supports nested folders  (I think most IMAP clients do). No "big" freemailer (msn, yahoo, gmx, gmail)  supports nested folders I fear...
