Hey...

I recommend Pair for this use as well. They're a reliable host with good but slow support. They've got support newsgroups which are pretty active though...

However, if you are looking to just host free email and don't mind using Everyone.net's login page... then you might not need hosting at all...

see:

Yes, i am using IIC Internet Service. They provide free and very fast support. Their server seems good. Yes, you have only to pay 45$ for no monthly fee hosting plan.

i am considering pair.com ... the $4.95 ftp package, however i am still seaching for a cheaper host as i dont think this e-mail site will earn enough money to cover the $50 that i have to pay pair(this year with 24% discount). e.g. redrival recommended by funpage cost only $20(one time fee)!

arn : thanks a lot, thats a good idea ... unfortunately i cant use that because i am plannng to create some other pages(ecard,etc).

kil: do pair.com allow us to provide email services? i am still waiting fro the reply http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

poz: thats great!!! thanks for your reply!!! ... i will calculate and see if the 1mb is enough for my new site or not http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

thanks again everyone for your reply http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I have no experience with redrival.

Pair does allow you to have email services, you just have to ask them to change the mx records for you, but w/ pair they also charge an extra $25 setup fee and $1 a month.
for virtual hosting.

If you don't want to pay anything, there are free web hosts that will change your mx records for you. I know virtualave.net will do it for you for free. I am having a mail site setup w/ them now... Their support is somewhat slow though.

Yes Pair lets you use Everyone.net I am using them at my site, www.prostart.net I have quite a few domains under Pair, I am also in the process of Setting up a website that will offer Free Webspace. I have always had great service from them, and when I switch to another host, I always find myself going back to them.
