    I want to set up my own hotmail.com type site, but I don't have the first idea of what to do. Any tips or links etc ?

    Get an open source webmail and modify it. Are you a coder?

    If you want to do customizations than you have to be a coder or hire one, here is one open source one, you can find many on Google

    What I want is to make my own hotmail.com, like joebloggs.com, and have ppl register with me. I want to customise it so that I can have ads of my choice displayed next to the emails they recieve etc etc.
    Squirrelmail is just an application you use to recieve your emails, like outlook, isn't it, and not a front end app for a mail server etc ?
