Good website for sending e-cards from w/o worry of spyware

Nov 27, 2007 1:23PM PST

Can anyone recommend a good website to use to send holiday e-cards through without having to worry about the website adding spyware and such to my computer?

So far I never had problems with.....

Hallmark FREE ecards:

Or...

JacquieLawson

but is NOT free:

Of course, an e-card service of this kind cannot be operated free of charge and to cover the enormous costs of servers and suchlike. Jacquie's entire collection of e-cards is available for a modest yearly membership fee. A one-year subscription allows you to send as many greetings as you like. This reflects a deliberate policy of trying to keep prices low in order to allow as many people as possible to enjoy Jacquie's beautifully prepared online greeting cards.

Birthday Alarm

I have been using Birthday Alarm. They offer several different categories besides birthdays. I like the fact that they email me reminders before someone's birthday. It is not free. I can't remember how much it is but it is reasonable. Haven't had any trouble with spyware with this site.

Good Web site for sending e-cards
Dec 3, 2007 5:50AM PST

Steve,
If you have Yahoo! email (it's free), you're all set. Yahoo! uses American Greetings, and it's only $13.99/year. I got the first 30 days free. There are 100s from which to choose - some postcards but most are animated. None are outrageously disgusting, perhaps a slight leaning in an untoward direction. I can assure you, many are guaranteed to evoke a good belly laugh. And, there are the sweet, gentle, thoughtful cards. If Yahoo! isn't a trustworthy site, I don't know what else would be.

Thank you hikergirl for the post. I have Yahoo free email so I'll have to check it out. I like winter snow scenes with animation; something like Thomas Kincaide's scenes; the "Painter of Light" but I am more concerned about my computer being hit with a potential security threat than I am in finding the right site to send some nice holiday e-cards out.
