This is the problem with *free* e-mail for most home users,  you still need
a service provider to hook into the internet, and they almost always
provide e-mail as part of their basic package.  The advantage of these free
e-mail setups seems to be as a second or third address option wich is an
additional cost from service providers, also if you can access the free
e-mail from any web browser in the world, that would be an advantage most
service providers cant offer.  But you still have to pay for the first
connection to the service provider, or use it at work :>).
