    Outlook is a mail client...

    Are you looking for a mail provider that will allow you to get your mail using outlook? Give gmail a shot.

    Actually, after using the web interface a bit, you might not want to use outlook anymore.

    I had that setup. My only gripe was that very occasionally I would get a message marked as spam incorrectly and moved to the Gmail spam folder. And because I was using a mail client I didn't know about it unless I signed into Gmail.

    Hotmail/live mail supports outlook. AOL's mail(which is now free) does as well.

    Personaly I would say gmail as it seems to be one of the better free email services. Have it setup to use outlook on my notebook. Works well.

    The only free one I know of is gmail. I haven't tried the paid hotmail because gmail works well for me.
