    I just saw on wikipedia that they are a new free webmail provider. Their site looks very low budget but they seem to offer lots of service for their email. I was about to sign up but figured I would check here first to see if anyone heard of them or has tried their service?

    Hi, snacks

    I haven't used them myself, but I did notice this thread over at EMD that might have some opinions for you.

    I have not used their service, but to add to the discussion about bad grammar and it apparently not having a technical person running it, all of their MX records point to the same IP, and even worse they point to CNAMES. MX records should point to A records in DNS, not CNAMEs.

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    lus.com. 29m31s IN MX 10 pop.lus.com.
    lus.com. 29m31s IN MX 20 mail.lus.com.
    lus.com. 29m31s IN MX 30 smtp.lus.com.

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    pop.lus.com. 27m43s IN CNAME lus.com.
    lus.com. 27m43s IN A 97.74.200.44


    The reverse DNS points back to secureserver.net . The reverse DNS does not have a custom PTR record.

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    44.200.74.97.in-addr.arpa. 1H IN PTR ip-97-74-200-44.ip.secureserver.net.


    The IP addresses don't appear to be blacklisted. :)
