BEST TO AVOID!!!
I signed up with them back in the late 90s, when things were pretty basic. It seems to be a good idea at the time to have a permanent email address when ISPs were unreliable and had to switch ISPs every now and then.
I must say, initially the service was good. Like anything else, all good things come to an end. Due to he increasing number of subscribers, they have decided to charge for their service, and that was where things started to go wrong. Nothing wrong with charging for providing a service however, in their case the service got worse despite charging people for it!!
In short by signing up, you;
1. get frequent email delays sometimes up to couple of weeks!
2. get your email lost every now and then
3. get constant spams from different spammers direct to your actual email address (I have only given bigfoot my actual address and get spam direct. Couple of other different addresses I had had the same problem)
4. cannot access the customers service frequently as they switch it off with 'server maintenance' excuse
If you go by their paid service, things don't improve either. Moreover, for the price they are trying to charge, you might as well get your own domain name with forwarders, which will work out a lot cheaper and above all reliable!
So if you're thinking of signing up, even for their free service, you get more inconvenience and hassle. Stay clear!!
