My problem was briefly discussed in http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12899 But still no solution. I am looking for a mail service provider which works on HTTP (like Hotmail) so that I can send receive mails through mail client using the HTTP server. (I dont have access to POP/SMTP at all). I am planning to be a subscriber of Hotmail. They are charging $19.95 per year for a 2GB mailbox. Is it fine or is there any similar service available. (coz 2 MB is simply nothing). Since softwares are available for Linux also so that I can access Hotmail in Linux also (I did't got anu utility for sending and receiving mmails frm gmail account in linux). Also is there a mail client for win and lin sharing a common data file?
