everyone.net = [big]run away[/big], run away, run away
You pay per incident for support unless you buy a big support package. The product is pretty low quality and the ads are everywhere.

I've had good luck with everyone.net for my personal email. Bigmailbox is horrible. Haven't worked with the others.
I also host my own email and am liking that much better. I keep the everyone.net box because it's nice to have email somewhere else, so if my site or whatever goes down I can still get email.

I used zzn for a short while... it wasnt really what i was looking for but i had no problems..only problem was your users will be sure to get hit with loads of spamm.

I have three sites with everyone.net, all of them work very well. I used oemmail.com for a while but suddenly I started to get MX errors, which dissapeared when I moved over to everyone.net
I checked out bigmailbox.com but I found it horrible!
Haven't heard of the others.

I use everyone.net. I bought the ad free version for one site and I've never had a problem with it. One site has around 700 email users now and they aren't ad-free, but they seem to like ease in which accounts can be created and to be honest, it's better than Hotmail and spam free in comparison.
As for the tech support, I've never had to use it. Implementation is easy, there is rarely any downtime and you know 5 days in advance of any maintenance downtime.

This was a few months ago, this may have changed, but I'd definetely recommend reading privacy policies in regards to "free email"

thanks, i'll look closely
I've started to look at sites that provide services for businesses and ask them about their prices, I haven't heard from any of them yet. =/
I've contacted Commtouch, USA.net,and Critical Path so far about pricing... I wish they'd email back soon. If the pricing is too high, I guess I might tryout everyone.net or that netmongol one, but I'm a customize/feature freak so I wonder if it'd be better if I just got a email script and run it on my own server. Though, I really want to outsource because I don't particularly want to maintain it 24/7.

I wouldn't even consider touching running an email type service on my own server. Too easy for spammers and other evil-doers to take advantage.

I thought bigmailbox discontinued their mailing services. Didn't they?
| 7:30 pm on Jun 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Their site is still active. Haven't used the service in years due to the obnoxious number of ads.

I had their service running on my site for three months recently, and one day it stopped. Got an e-mail two days later explaining the service had been discontinued.
If I were looking for more I would go to aspin.com hotscripts.com or cgi-resources.com and look in their prespective provider sections. They all produce some pretty interesting results.

If you want to try your hand at running your own email server, try Argosoft's email system. Small and nice. You can purchase the domains, then allow users to create accounts as they see fit. Good relay control as well.
