COMPANY/LOCATION/   DESCRIPTION
MEMBERS

JUNO                Unlike the others, Juno isn't Web-based, so its members
www.juno.com        must use special PC software. Still, Juno has seen a rise
3 million           in advertisers--from  25 to 80--during its 16 months of
                    operation. It handles some 2.5 million messages per day.

HOTMAIL             The fastest-growing service, Hotmail adds about 40,000 new  
www.hotmail.com     members daily. It handles roughly 10 million messages per, 
6.5 million         day drawing 35 advertisers.

EXCITE              In operation just five weeks, MailExcite won't disclose  
www.mailexcite.com  membership numbers. Traffic to the service will likely
                    mirror its parent, the Excite N/A Web search site, which
                    has more than 2 million visitors a day.

FOUR11              RocketMail is a recent addition to Four11, a Web-based 
www.rocketmail.com  ''white pages'' directory with more than 10 million names,
                    E-mail addresses, and 700,000telephones numbers.
                    RocketMail is plugged into Four11, so members can easily
                    find others and E-mail them.
