    I use the Pop3 accounts from my ISP :), as well as Gmail.

    Gmail is used only to send big files through and little messages to other Gmail users.

    Just my ISP's POP3 (with Eudora).

    I also have a Yahoo mail acct. (as does anyone who's registered with Yahoo), but I don't supply that addy anywhere on the net or use it actively, so I know darned well that anything that goes there is 99.9 percent spam, courtesy of harvesters.

    Even any "official" communications with Yahoo themselves goes through my POP3 address.

    Although I do have a Yahoo account I never use it nowadays prefering GMail for a web mail service. Most e:mail stuff I do using my ISPs PoP mail service which gives me 12 password protected mail boxes and I also have some addresses created using my domain name whch forward to my ISP mail boxes.
    Software wise I use Thunderbird.

    I use Gmail as I recall before, however I use the POP3 Email that my ISP gave me. And for the client, I use Microsoft Outlook XP SP3. I know that Outlook is very unsecure and vulnerable, however I think it's the most powerful client. I used The Bat!, Eudora and Thunderbird and I prefer Outlook over those.

    I use my ISP pop3 for my personal email as does my wife. I have a Hotmail account that I started in 96 and use as a "throw-away" for registering etc places where I need to receive 1 mail for "confirmation" etc. I have used a University account on occasion and mine is still working but I don't really have much use for it anymore. Lastly, I use my Wilders account but mostly just to check for reported posts.

    My business teacher would claim that big isn't better both in business and the fact she's a little short.

    Hi,

    I still use Yahoo Mail because of its POP3 Access (free in the Germany Version of Yahoo Mail) and as Secondary Mail Provider GMX.

    My e-mail provider is also my ISP - SBC (sbc.net, POP3 account, accessed with Outlook 2003). I have Yahoo and Hotmail accounts but rarely use them (or check them) as I personally prefer being able to use Word as my default e-mail editor. However, I have a number of friends and relatives that only use web-based e-mail...at least we still have the freedom to use the method that works best for each of us :D

    Hi guys ;)

    Being a happy FFox/Moox and Opera user, been trying my hands at operamail for some time now.

    www.operamail.com

    Feelin' at home with it ;)

    Other than that, my ISP still delivers as regards more personal mailing.

    Never heard of Gmail before... What are the ups?

    Rgds, Crockett :cool:
