Why is Road Runner email (web) so painfully slow!!!!!

Navigating in road runner email is more than frustrating.  My quota level is 5% so this not a concern.  Going through emails one by one or deleting a page of emails requires 30-60 seconds per task.  This is unacceptable.   What is Spectrum going to do to improve this.  I do not have similar issues with internet speed with other tasks.

Other forum readers will strongly recommend that you should switch over to any one of several  "real" email providers and get rid of RoadRunner.  Stand by for their comments!

Echo this!

 

Road Runner is 15 years old!  It is no longer updated and is only offered via grandfathered accounts.  Switch to a Webmail provider.  Yahoo Mail, Gmail, Outlook.com are all modern fast web email services.  Gmail and Outlook.com give you access to Google Drive or One Drive respectively.  A full free Office Suite included with your free email account.  Google Drive has more free storage, (15 GB vs, 5 GB)  Make sure you have an ad-blocker in each of your browsers to block the banner ads.  If you don't have an ad blocker already, get Ad Block Plus.  (Only one ad-blocker per browser is advised to prevent slow-downs and conflicts.)
