    honestly, who uses it?

    i see a couple people have it in their sigs....

    frankly, the everyone.net service blows.... and im sure thats a good reason why a lot of you probably aren't using it.

    i was doing some reading... http://www.hivemail.com/

    basically, it works with our forum software (they built a plug-in) so that it would be 1 login for both (provided you use your username@hs.net) or something to that extent.

    I'm still looking into it-

    #1- it costs money. it's not a free service, and will cost me a couple hundred bucks a year. That said, I'm not going to go ahead with this at all if there is not SIGNIFICANT intrest in me doing so. I don't mind cutting the cost- but i want to see it get used if im dumping 2 bills on it.

    check the demo- http://www.hivedemo.com/

    would that be something you would use as your main email program?

    what would you all like to see space wise? I think hotmail/yahoo give you 10 megs? is that enough? do you want more? what is the main deal holding you back, or that sucks currently about your current e-mail provider?

    if you could write one, what would you do? what would you add that nothign seems to offer?

    any and all suggestions aprpeciated.

    (note- staff, this has nothing to do with your .com pop3 emails)

    well, see, we're putting links to our email in the top right of every webpage now. if you could go ahead and notice that from now on, that'd be great. Ohh, and James, i'll be sure you get another copy of that memo.

    this is about email, not pics.

    understandable, but imho 99 outta 100 users have their own personal email address. if this service costs you cash, i wouldnt bother with it.

    but :thumbsup: on using it to draw hits.
