Looks like they will offer POP3 forwarding as well, so may be of interest. :)

Getting seriously hacked off with Hotmail collection from Outlook, doesn't seem to work for 90% of the time.

I just got myself a gmail account!

I feel dirty and cheap as I had to pay a fiver for an invite (and I can't invite anyone else) but I got a good username and avoided the rush when it launches to the public, so unless gmail collapses it should last me a while.

Haven’t had time to test it out yet properly, but it looks promising.

yahoo.co.uk is good, offers pop3 forwarding, and if you tick the minimum number of 'spam me' buttons results in nearly zero spam. I have several!!!
