    Email Account

    Bit of a long shot but my little sibling would like an email account so she can email me when im away.

    however her request is that when she gets a new email it 'shouts' at her.

    is there any web based email accounts that 'shout at you' when emails are recieved?

    You could use Hotmail and MSN Messenger - when emails received, if you have messenger running, it tells you.

    Gmail - you can use this with Outlook Express/Outlook, which also tells you when you have email.

    Thats about all I know, caus that what I use.

    HTH

    You could turn the volume up?

    cheers, i'll give gmail ago 'cos i dont really want her on msn!

    you can use hotmail with outlook also

    How do you pick up your mail ?

    A lot of ISP's let you set up more than one email address.


    BTW Which ever you choose I would set spam filtering to only allow emails from known sources ie: your email account.

    gmail have an app you can download which will also notify you when mail arrives, this does without the need of setting it up in outlook etc

    o right, ill trust you big daddy

    by any chance do you know what the app is called?

    I'd recomend hotmail..but then you have to be logged on to msn for the pop up to show as new mail recieved.

    If you already have msn and dont want her on it...just block her!!

    Gmail notifier ]here can also be a firefox extension.

    If you pay for it tho....

    The old hotmail.com works, but now with hotmail.co.uk, it doesn't :?

    incredimail......you can have different charachters appear on your screen and they shout different things depending on the character, no matter what your doing on the computer it will pop up :thumbsup:
