If you haven’t done so already, you might want to check out the Goowy
Mail beta for a very
different web-based email experience. Goowy Mail is almost completely Flash-based,
and offers a pretty comprehensive set of features like skins, POP integration,
spell checking, junk filters, contacts, and more. Free accounts get you 100MB
of storage, but Goowy Mail Plus and Platinum are coming soon, and will offer
more space as well as additional features.
It’s a pretty impressive app, and definitely worth looking in to. If you want
to send some test emails to get a feel for it, my Goowy email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
