E-mail Around The World, July 2003

With the exception of the U.S., MSN Hotmail was the leading e-mail service during July 2003 in all the countries that Hitwise monitors. Yahoo! Mail holds a modest lead in the U.S., but the popular portal's mail service is a very distant second nearly everywhere else.
