    I'm about to create a new webmail account, but the problem is; which webmail is a good one when we think about security, etc.? Which webmail do you people recommend?

    One that is free with limited storage space is Safe-Mail .

    Once again, your mail is on someone's server. You have to determine the sensitivity of the information you transmit and store.

    To add to ronjor's good advice. Use ur server email service for private use for family & trusted friends. Set up a throw-away addy for internet use using hotmail, yahoo or use one of the few more free ones that are available. Before setting up a new addy that is not from ur server, be sure to read the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

    for web mail I use www.outgun.com I have used it a long time and it seems to be secure and I don't get any spam on it.

    Have a look at Fastmail. Free and paid-for accounts. No problems for the past couple of years.

    It's one big beta test site by Novell, but I'm a long time user and I am quite fond of it.
