The IzyMail service has been discontinued. It was a service to read your webmail on your mobile phone or with your email client. It provided POP or IMAP access for webmail services such as Hotmail, which was itself transitioned to Outlook.com. The service provided is now built into webmail and mobile phone email apps, making IzyMail unnecessary.

IzyMail provides great access to free Windows Live Hotmail accounts, but it is not itself free.

You can try the service for free, though.
