Why you shouldn't use your ISP's e-mail address

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 24-Aug-2007 10:22

Lance has written a good blog post about why you shouldn't use your ISP-provided e-mail address, instead looking at hosted services, such as GMail, Yahoo!, Windows Live Hotmail - he even refers to our own geekzonemail service!

Of course if you are a geek with a penchant for managing servers, and have a rather large broadband allowance, plus spare hardware then you could run your own e-mail server, with your own domain.

But at least GMail and Windows Live Hotmail provide hosted services for you if you really want to go that way.
