i was just wondering..... what does everybody else use? i use hotmail because i think it is the best.. but i don't know why other people choose yahoo, gmail or another type of e-mail??

July 18th, 2009, 9:20 AM
I use Hotmail! I think it rocks! (Like MSN!! :3)

July 18th, 2009, 9:32 AM
Hotmail owns, it's the only one I use anyways.

July 18th, 2009, 9:34 AM
I actually use MobileMe, but before that (and I mean years ago), I used Hotmail.

July 18th, 2009, 9:35 AM
Hotmail is what I've always used. I just can't get used to the others.

Yahoo has terrible spam filters and I don't like GMail, as it's unappealing.
Hotmail owns, though. 5 GB of storage space, and other cool things. Like working spam filters.

I have my own domain, but I use Windows Live (MSN or Hotmail) for messaging. WLM is amazing. I use Microsoft Outlook to view my emails :D

July 18th, 2009, 9:51 AM
GMAIL is the top tier in email I believe. Unrivaled amount of storage a deep archive and plenty of other cool features. I've been using GMAIL since it dropped.

Yahoo, and even then just for registering on websites like this one; and even then, again, only because my original hotmail used for Windows Messenger was apparently not valid.

Having used all three, I prefer Hotmail. It's got loads of space, spam filters that work and easy usage.

Gmail is better in my opinion, but I could not be bothered to use it because everything is in my Yahoo name.

I've used Yahoo the spam filters suck. Then I found Hotmail about two years ago ever since I've loved it everything about it XD.

I use Gmail. I chose it because most of my family switched when we switched internet providers. That's the one I use, and I'm sticking to it.

I have always used it really.

I have a Hotmail and Yahoo, but my official email (as in the only I give to colleges, possible jobs, teachers) is the yahoo one.

July 18th, 2009, 5:09 PM
I use Yahoo mail I use to use AOL.

I've used all three before over the past few years and GMail is easily the best out of them. 7GB of storage, an easy to use interface, themes and loads a whole lot faster.
Yahoo is just... no. Spam filters are like non-existant on there and I really didn't like the interface.
Hotmail is okay, but it doesn't seem to like remembering my password. I never use it now but it's only still active because of WLM.

July 18th, 2009, 7:59 PM
I don't really check my emails that often - but the only one I have is hotmail. :/

July 18th, 2009, 8:12 PM
I only use Hotmail.
I haven't ever used Yahoo or Gmail, but as much as I've heard, they're not nearly as a good as Hotmail.

July 18th, 2009, 8:14 PM
Yahoo. had it for about three years now. My first Email, and I have been using it ever since.

Always had hotmail, from the first time i got onto the internet, my gmail account is just for spam type sites or for games. Hotmail is for the important stuff like MSN and w/e else, xbox live etc.

July 18th, 2009, 9:16 PM
I have always used yahoo mail.

July 19th, 2009, 2:21 AM
I prefer hotmail. I seldom use the other two now.

July 19th, 2009, 6:14 AM
Hotmail. It's what I've always used, so I can't shake it.

I've always used yahoo mail every since I had my first e-mail address


July 19th, 2009, 7:37 AM
Many years ago, when we stopped using AOL/dial up, I started using Yahoo mail (and messenger, too). To this day, it's still the only one I've used, and Yahoo is my main IM client, too.

July 19th, 2009, 10:54 AM
I use both Hotmail, and Gmail.
I personally like Gmail better, but I've had my hotmail account for years (5 or so) and I'm used to it. So it'd be very hard for me to go all Gmail.

July 19th, 2009, 10:56 AM
I used to use hotmail for my emailing needs, but I've switched to GMX now: it's far superior. Still use my hotmail address for WLM though, so it hasn't completely left my life.

July 19th, 2009, 11:11 AM
I haven't used Yahoo or Google mail that much in the past, so I'll have to say Hotmail. I suppose I'm just accustomed to the way Hotmail works.

July 20th, 2009, 3:00 AM
I use Hotmail a lot.
I think it's a lot more trustworthy since they have a junk section XD
Which doesn't help when there is important things in there....>8(

July 20th, 2009, 4:15 AM
I use google, it's easy to join, use and, seem's the easiest to log into for me. :)

I used to use hotmail, but now i feel it kinda sux (too slow on our comps and stuff X_x; probably cuz we're mac users...)

I never used Yahoo! before. Is it free? I never really bothered to ask...though i'm guessing it could be since it's popular and all.

Regardless, I rarely do check my e-mail...XD It's a horrable habbit i need to break x_X ahhh...lol XD ^^;

I've been using Gmail for years now and can't seem to use anything else. I've used all three of these though. Yahoo was probably my first email I actively used but I haven't touched it in about 6 years. XD; I migrated to hotmail and used that until I got Gmail, iirc. I hate Hotmail now though. The interface is so clunky and annoying to use, imo. :( It's just frustrating. I only use it because I'm afraid of getting the account closed for inactivity if I forward it to my main email.

Anyway I'm gonna toss this into the Tech forum. :/

I use GMail, for a couple reasons.

(Hint: it has POP)

July 20th, 2009, 8:24 AM
I use GMail because of its SPAM filters. I'm not sure about how it does now against rival webmail services but GMail was the best when I signed up.

July 20th, 2009, 9:06 AM
Gmail had free POP and IMAP when I got invited to the beta, so I switched to that. I've used it ever since.

July 20th, 2009, 10:04 AM
I use both Gmail and Hotmail. Gmail is the account I use for signing up to websites ~ I prefer Gmail

I've always found Gmail to be superior to any of the free email clients out there. Whether it be Yahoo, Hotmail, AIM, or anything else. I even prefer to use Gmail over my own personal Comcast email. Unfortunately, I don't really use my Gmail account for anything other than account related details. For instance, when I make an account somewhere. But... I change my email address like I change my underwear. Seriously. :|

The only ones I've actually used over a long period of time were two @msn.com email addresses, and maybe one @gmail.com address. But when I need to give someone like a teacher or potential employer, usually I give them either my Gmail address or my Comcast one. Which ever one comes to mind first...

But in my opinion, I've found:
Gmail > Yahoo > Hotmail

Unlike others, my Hotmail inboxes were always flooded with spam messages to the point where I grew too frustrated to use that account anymore.

I use gmail only because of a firefox app that tells me when i have new mail.

Hotmail is okay, but it doesn't seem to like remembering my password. I never use it now but it's only still active because of WLM.

I agree about Gmail, which is my primary because it is easy to access at school between classes.
I have Yahoo! and Hotmail, though they're a bit slower, though I may start using Digsby to make checking everything easier. Yahoo isn't all that bad (which was my primary before Gmail), just difficult to sign into. Only reason I don't use Hotmail more is that WLM is annoying and will boot up when the PC boots up after you've signed into WLM or Hotmail even once, and then I have to go turn it off.
Strangely enough, all of my email accounts are younger than my user account here at PC.

I use Gmail, purely because it was the best available when I signed up. Hotmail was full of ads, spam and just seemed less refined. Yahoo was a lot better, but I'm not a fan of all the other things they link in with the Yahoo Mail service. I went with Gmail after my cousin suggested it, and I haven't looked back, although from what I've seen the others are improving.

Guys, it seems like a few of you are using a hotmail address purely for MSN. You can actually link up any email address up to MSN by creating a .Net passport, or at least that's what it used to be called. :cer_nod:

I love Gmail more the hotmail, I would use hotmail is gmail wasnt an option.

July 21st, 2009, 6:25 AM
Yahoo. I'm too lazy to make a new email account.

July 21st, 2009, 4:48 PM
GMAIL. It's chat system is better, and unlike your Hotmail, it allows POP access for free.
