I'm a jaded web mail user

Ever since google and others starting stepping the web mail competition up a notch, I've been getting upgrades to my Y! mail. I pay $19.95 a year so I can pop my email but now it also gets me 2GB of storage. What a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately I hate web mail. I have to have it pour into my outlook simply because I find webmail too slow to respond. And those damn time outs. I can't count how many times I was writing some long passionate (usually in an angry way) email and hit send, only for it to tell me that my session had timed out and I need to re-login. I hit back in one hell of a desperate attempt to retrieve what I had so carefully crafted and poof it was all gone. Never again.
