Default A question about free email

I will be starting a website sometime soon. I'm thinking of offering free email services for my website users using everyone.net. Recently I came across some services which pay per new subscriber who sign up for their email service (also free) . Now I'm a bit confused as to what I should do . Offer a choice of these programs (if I get accepted) or offer email at my own domain at 50% shared banner space with everyone.net

The first proposition looks good for me because I'm assured of a definite income for every sign-up while in the second case I still don't know how much I can earn as I don't know the amount of traffic that will be coming in.

An optimist would claim that the second option would prove more beneficial over time, but given the adverse reaction that advertisers have towards 'free email' and similar high-traffic, low-response community features at present (whether justified or not), it's likely that the fixed bounty would prove more lucrative.

As long as the company presenting this offer is reputable, willing to host and manage the system with no little to no input from you or sacrifice to your system resources, and as long as the bounty is reasonable ($0.50 or above per subscriber), I'd suggest that you go with Door #1.

I used to participate in the BizLand and Chek programs, but they're no longer paying for free email signups.

Does anyone have experience with the others?
