Most of the times we couldn't get our desired mail id on other mail portals and that's why we had to choose our ids with extra characters. But if you register for your india mail id soon, you can get your desired username.
The mail services of India.com are very advanced and according to the needs of the new generation. Here, you can get latest news of I.T., Bollywood, Music, Food etc. You can customize themes also. You can redirect your mails on other id, add-on third party accounts, block unwanted mailers and can access your mails through mobile and outlook express also. Not only this, you can import your facebook contacts in your india.com mail account with single click. You can upload your contact list in .CSV and VCard format. And one more thing, you can get updates from your facebook and twitter friends in your mailbox, if you connect your facebook and twitter accounts with this.
So, in my opinion, it's very good for everyone and is according to the new generation.
