Hotmail used to be the only free email account service available on the Internet. However, now there are many more companies that allow you to grab your email from any computer in the world - via your web browser. It's a snap to set up a free email account, and the following services are great ways to get multiple email addresses for yourself, your children, Mom, Dad ...you name it. We love free.
