Oct. 28, 2015 my email stopped working. No way to contact excite. Their email links come back undelivered and there is no phone #. I have missed some important emails and now have to get hold of my contacts to give them another email address to use… Read Full Review

I was a big eXcite fan back in the days of 95 and 98 and some XP, but you have to be careful on what you click on now as I see links for Speedbar malware and Mindspring. I am helper on Malware removal sites and some of these things are what we help people to remove. I guess they went from a great service and now looking to make money by providing links to garbage. I guess its just there bottom line there thinking about and not us… Read Full Review

I was looking for a fast web based e-mail for my old Apple Powerbook G4. Till I get on Excite, everything was running very slow. On Excite - it's running really fast. There is no ads, flash, and all other things - your old computer cant handle. In my opinion, its quite all right. Of course we need to know, that email service is not as wide as in Gmail or Yahoo, but it's enough to operate on really good level. I'm quite happy with this. Besides - its good eye on history of internet :) Since mid… Read Full Review

I had Excite mail since 1997. I finally stopped using it this year when I purchase an HTC 8X phone which uses the windows OS. I could like my gmail and microsoft accounts but could not link my excite account. I have found that being notified that I have e-mail whenever I use my phone so usefull that I stopped using Excite… Read Full Review

I have had my excite email account since 1997. Over the past several years the service has been in rapid decline. The problems I have encountered range from login page failing to be displayed, unable to login, email box loading slowly, email box failing to load. Received failure to deliver notices for emails I did not send (possible caused by a virus on their servers), and now since the past four days (beginning 3/20/13) I cannot send or receive emails. I have been with Excite for so long I… Read Full Review

Excite really sucks in my opinion, with slow loading pages email that arrives like snail mail. I am trying to keep the email address because it was my first one but, its just a waste of my time to even check email at excite.com… Read Full Review

I've had Excite for 10 years now and have watched it go downhill. I just use it for websites that are sure to send me spam. Friends emails were not received, causing me to miss out on news they wanted to share. How do you lose emails? How can that happen?… Read Full Review

This used to be better, but it was never good. I needed several email addresses for several purposes. For a while it was the email address from which I got Yahoo group emails. That was back when excite was relatively easy to use. Then came the day it was all gone. Well, it wasn't. It was temporarily unavailable. Soon after that, they changed to this insane way of doing things. I had to double click just to read an email. I eventually learned to do this. But a lot of emails going to me got lost… Read Full Review

I thought this company had went to the dogs but really how low have they gone.
I logged onto www.excite.com tonight to check an old e-mail account and the top banner was titled "Hot Videos" with pics of semi naked girls.
Personally I would not care normally but this is meant to be a family site is it not? or has that changed recently?
My 10 year old daughter was sitting beside me and wasnt really an image i thought suitable for her age… Read Full Review

I've had Excite email for many years (1998/1999). I've been with them through Excite(at)Home and Freelane. After a few years, it seems as though they lost their source of talent. Since they've signed on with BlueTie it has been awful. They were once in the lead group on the internet; now it seems they're vying for a slow death.
* Emails take too long to arrive (if at all)
* Does not always work with Internet Explorer (may not be bad for others)
* Advertisements take up too much screen… Read Full Review

I had excite as my primary mail service, however since the improvements I have switch over to a different mail service that works. It became very slow and most time unresponsive. Found it to be more of a hassle. Don't even bother with this service. There are far better mail services out there then this… Read Full Review

I've had an email account with excite.com since around 1992.
It has become more frustrating in the last several years with slow or non working email services. There is absolutely the worst support or no support for problem resolution. Do not open an email account with the site. They use Blue Tie for their mail system and it is tough to get help from them also… Read Full Review

Since it was "improved" excite has turned into a nightmare. Lockups, lost mail, delayed mail, no service. It sometimes takes days to receive emails from friends and family. I had excite for well over 10 years and had it is my primary email. Not anymore! Just another one of many Kmart failures… Read Full Review
