The best email site

I've been using Hotmail as my email provider for years and I've never had any problems with it.
It's a very modern site which is connected to Windows Live and MSN so there are a few other applications that you can use too. MSN allows you to use instant messenger with other people who are in your email address list and Windows Live gives you access to a huge range of things including news, a search engine, horoscopes and celebrity gossip to name a few.
Everything about the site is so easy to use and navigate. You can create your own folders in your inbox so that you can easily manage and keep track of all your important emails and categorise them into certain subjects so that emails can be found and seen easily. You can also organise each folder to be displayed by who it's sent from, the date it was received or the subject which allows you to search for and find emails quicker.
Other applications you can use are a calendar where you can organise your events and a to do list and set reminders for certain activities. The contacts list you can add all your contacts in with all their details such as email address and a nickname for them.
It's so easy to create an email by just clicking on 'New' and then typing away. If you're using an email address from your contact list you just start typing their name and their details automatically come up which saves a lot of time. It's also really easy to upload photos and files through the 'Attach' button and you're able to send and receive quite large emails without any problem.
The only problem I've had with Hotmail is that occasionally I'll receive an email and I'm told that the size of it is too big to display the message. Admittedly this has been when the message is a rather long one where me and someone else have been emailing each other back and forth.
Hotmail is one of the most popular and well-known email sites and this is because it's a great site to use. You can store so many emails without your inbox getting full - I've been using them for years and I've not even filled half of my size limit! And best of all it's all free!
Summary: The only email site I'd use or recommend
