I use web based email services for two main reasons. First is that I know I can (and do) access my email from anywhere in the world .
Second is that it does not lock me into a particular ISP. I am currently using SBC DSL for my home internet access. Like every broadband supplier, they keep raising their rates thinking that you will either not notice or that switching to a new supplier (and having to change email addresses) is too much of a hassle. The next time SBC attempts to raise my rates, they lose me as a customer and I switch to a different supplier and the cycle repeats. I have had the same Hotmail addresses for over 10 years... makes it easy for people to keep in touch. Yes, I could get my own domain name and set up a permanent email address that way, but that can make reason #1 more difficult.
So my question is why are you restricting yourself to such limited means as WEB mail ?
It’s the same Hotmail®. If by “same” you mean up to 70% faster.
