    Question E-mail provider

    Who do you use for email? I'm using Gmail of course, but I'm considering alternatives. All of my complaints with Gmail are self-inflicted. However, before investing too much time in setting up a new email with all of my online accounts, etc. I was curious what everyone else uses. If you don't use Gmail, what are your arguments against it?

    I started with hotmail and although they were slow to change their UI so it is smooth, cleaner and easy to use like gmail's, they are not bad right now. I would recommend gmail to anyone though. Much better and safer IMO.

    The new Outlook is alright. I always favour hotmail but no particular reason why.

    In all honesty from my perspective there aren't any major flaws with any of them.

    I have several e-mails with most of the bigger providers which I use regularly and I've never had any problems that have made me like/dislike. I don't like like the look of Yahoo and AOL they just annoy me, but I still have them and have no real problems with them other than aesthetics

    I've used all of the providers above and I've got to say that I think gmail is the fastest and easiest to use... especially now that google is connected to soo many other websites... everyone that does close to anything on the internet probably has a gmail account

    Agree ^

    ANother way is to just buy a domain name like

    rddrox.com

    Then you get a email host , and make something like raredaredevil@rddrox.com and use outlook. The major advantage to owning such a server is you can easily make disposable accounts without any join forms ect..

    Well, I find myself using yahoo a lot because of what I do in my free time, but I still use GMail for personal stuff. It's just a lot easier and faster, on both my computer and my phone.

    I use both gmail and outlook. Gmail is for my own personal stuff, and my school uses outlook for the campus email. Yahoo has a terrible spam filter.

    Heres a usefull gmail trick:

    You email addy is rare@gmail.com

    we want to join a site thats going to potentially send us unwanted emails or a site we have joined before and blocks us because we need a unique email addy.... so we use this adress:

    neopets+rare@gmail.com

    Now we make a new label "neo" and then add a new filter:

    To: neopets+rare@gmail.com
    Apply the label: neo

    Now any email from that site gets sent to our "neo" folder. Also we can use it on a few sites to allow us to use the same email adress (where "+" symbol is not detected). Never tried it on neopets to be honest...
