Has anbody tried. www.everyone.net (http://www.everyone.net) or www.bigmailbox.com (http://www.bigmailbox.com) to offer their visitors free email service?? I'm planing to offer email at my site since they allow you to place your own banner and get return visitors.

I just don't know which one is better.

Create a fake account for each one and start using it for a day and see which one you like better. Then consider if you would rather have 50/50 ad and signature split(for everyone.net), or 100% signature split and 20% of the ads(for bigmailbox). I personally use everyone.net and they have recently done a few major upgrades, But there is still more things they can do to make it better.

Dear People ,

I have been running a free email service for about 2 1/2 months now and I find it extremely successful . For you information , I use Outblaze ( Instant Portal ) http://www.outblaze.com .

To the question put forward by KHN about shifting to a different provider , yes it is possible to allow your users to shift also , but from my experience , this has to be done manually . Get the appropriate details from your current provider and then if possible a text file with all your users and then transfer the data to your new provider .

This process is tentative and does not work with all providers so you would have to email techsupport to find out about that .

Hope that helped .

I don't like them because you need to have 100,000 page view a month in order to have your advertisement. Heartz, how much page view are you getting and do you know how much a person average per month??

They work on a two tier basis . If your traffic is less then 100,000 , which is the case of mine , then they let you have all the bottom banners in the email interface for you to manage how you like and the top and bottom space in your homepage/login page . If you surpass 100,000 then you move into profit sharing . Right now , I am only using the banner space to build Brand Awareness through banner exchanges. I am growing at the rate of about 20 new users per week , mostly from the tagline . Banner advertising is so far not so successfull for me . I am going to use goto.com in the near future but right now I am quite satisfied with me growth rate .

So you guys want to know how many users I need to get a 100,000 ???

The thing is , I don't know myself . The figure varies drastically from month to month as it depends on the amount of emailing and transactions people perform on the email interface . I have at times reached up to 35,000 page views in a month-->

This figure has also gone as low as 9600 -->(in my second month of operation ) .

So if you ask me , I think I will only achieve that 100,000 status once I sign up at least another 3000-4000 users .... something I hope to achieve within the next year or so .

Hope this helps .
