“Shut out of my email, then they deleted my account ”

Written on: 15/04/2021 by Armstrongho57 (1 review written)

I have been a user of excite email for over 20 years. I was locked out of my account, username and password not working. When l was finally able to have a support worker respond to me, they told me l had not accessed my emails for three months and so have deleted my account. Irretrievable they tell me. An absolutely disgraceful way to handle the situation which was created by them in the first place. 20 years of email correspondence wiped by them just like that… Read Full Review

“Poor Email Services”

Written on: 08/07/2020 by 416Hull (1 review written)

If I could give it a Zero, I would. Unfortunately when Excite was first started it was pretty decent; however now it is terrible and when a business does not provide a customer service number that speaks volumes for itself. I constantly have to submit a notice to try and access my account because my Password is incorrect, which it is not because I always write it down and take a screen shot after they tell me to reset BUT when I go in again, guess what happens??? Correct, message states… Read Full Review

“INEXPLICABLE CHANGES”

Written on: 28/04/2019 by tjoyceco (1 review written)

I have been an enthusiastic user of Excite.com for at least 25 years - until now ! I do not understand the changes to this portal. I have used its Personal Home Page constantly, last month it disappeared. My email account is fine. I willingly put up with the advertisements on my Home Page as the price of the convenience to have ALL of my major and minor links accessible from one page. Now it has disappeared, and the customer service at Excite.com does not explain how I get it back, or why… Read Full Review

“Not the same”

Written on: 10/08/2015 by Lauren258 (1 review written)

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

“Simple, Fast and Minimal - All you need is Excite”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by charlieExcite (1 review written)

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

“Always A Problem”

Written on: 28/03/2013

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

“From Excite to LAME”

Written on: 04/11/2012 by prgringo (1 review written)

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...”

Written on: 10/08/2010 by ZimbraIsEvil (3 reviews written)

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

Written on: 15/06/2010 by mrsmiley (3 reviews written)

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
