For my main account, I use Yahoo because it's same account I've been using since 2005 so I don't feel like using anything else. I have many other emails that I created over the years to sign up for many sites more than once cause I'd be to lazy to retrieve my password. But I rarely use these. I also have secondary account on AOL that I also use pretty often. Might try Thunderbird cause it sounds very useful.

My preferred is G-mail because it's easier to make a new one if necessary, but if I need to send anything to anyone, I'll use Messenger (AKA Hotmail, Live, etc xD)

I've had so many different e-mail addresses and used so many different e-mail clients, one could say it's concerning. I most definitely prefer Gmail above them all though. Hotmail became too much of a mess for me and I gave up on that client years ago. The only reason I ever had one was for MSN, and now I just use Skype.

I like the new Yahoo, but I really don't use it except for maybe if I'm signing up for something and I don't want to use my main e-mail account. Other than that, I've tested a few other clients in the past, but these are the three that's most memorable to me.

I've been using Hotmail since 2008 and its been my primary client since.

Once I start college though they got this new email account for me to use, so that'll be my primary in a few months.

Generally an email client refers to a program you use to access your emails - such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail, etc. I'd personally call Gmail/Hotmail and the like 'email providers/services'.

My main and uni accounts are Gmail-based and I run them through Mac Mail/iOS Mail. I do use my main account through Gmail's web client on my Windows desktop, however.

I also have a MobileMe account for professional purposes, because [email protected] looks far better than any other suffix on resumes and applications.

Gmail's definitely the best, and I have one for formal stuff. But I use AOL most often.

I've been using Gmail for yeeeaaarrrsss and it's done everything I've ever needed it to do. I don't see myself switching to anything else anytime soon.

It's the next chapter, the ultimate goal! Ready for battle, brave and bold!

After having Gmail for several years and testing many others as they came along. I must say, I am most pleased by what google offers in the email department.

I use Gmail and GMX mail. I prefer to check both on my phone though, it's more convenient.

I use Hotmail and my university's own email client. I don't email enough to bother checking for alternatives but Hotmail's always been really reliable for me and works perfectly for everything I could want. I might look into gmail soon though simply because my Hotmail username is rather childish and I'll need a more professional one soon haha.

I use Gmail, and I have been using it since 2009. I like it cos it's easy to navigate.

I have many accounts. Many, believe me. But I usually use only gmail and hotmail. Gmail for most of the stuff concerning registration on sites and official work while hotmail is used for skype.
Hi people, Schinder here. I'm a friendly user who likes to talk to people. I'm into graphics so you'll probably see me running around with various themes that'll be changed on a frequent basis. As you can probably guess from my theme, I really, really love One Piece. And Boa Hancock is a really nice character from the series so I thought I'd make a theme on her. So yes, my current theme is based on One Piece world's best looking woman 'Boa Hancock'. She's a character who is proud of her exquisite beauty and doesn't really care what others think. Once she has decided she'd do something, she's gonna do it. She doesn't take no for an answer. Nothing can stop her. Arrogance is a signature feature of her personality. But yes, what makes her awesome is that she's a strong warrior who kicks serious ass.

My preferred E-Mail client is Opera... Simple, fast, and has a lot you can customize.

As for E-Mails, I currently have just a couple E-Mails to work with, I like to use my own domain for my official stuff. Or to surprise people, I occasionally use my E-Mail, I have a few canonical ones for different jobs and a general Gmail account for that. I just accumulated the rest via various things. One used to be my YouTube login for example.

A little bit of E-Mail and RSS...
