Your favourite webmail service provider?
My Broadband provider's Webmail
I mainly use Gmail and Hotmail, but don't really have a favourite.
Used hotmail for as long as i can remember. Never had any problems with it and its easy and convenient to use.
i use Gmail and Hotmail
Gmail with my domain. It's been working great.
Gmail, Live, and Yahoo!
NONE of these. I do not use webmail. I see no particular value in it. Am I wrong?
Well, it's always good to have a backup email client, imo.
Plus I use Hotmail for those 'throwaway' addresses that come in so handy from time to time.
I am using G-mail and Hotmail. Hotmail account for family only, one G-mail accont for friends, and yet another G-mail account for the rest
I have a Gmail and Windows Live and Windows Live is by far the buggiest piece of garbage I have ever used. Gmail is great though.
Why? It works very well here.
I voted hotmail because it is my oldest account by far, and also the one that most people have and use.
I preferred it when I could use OE with hotmail. I used live for awhile, but it wasn't really my thing.
I dislike some features of the web interface immensely.
Gmail is ok, but honestly it doesn't really do much for me, but then, none of the web based email accounts do.
I do not use ISP provided email, ever. I may not be super enthusiastic about web mail providers like those listed, but they do have one thing the ISP does not - easy access from anywhere, and I don't have to worry about whether or not my mail was downloaded to my computer and no longer on the mail server. That is why I have never used ISP provided accounts. I have mail from long time still on hotmail.
On a side note, I remember a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, when my wife needed to know my email address, and I told here blah-blah-blah at hotmail, she laughed and said "hot male, yeah right, hot mail --- oh! hot mail". I think I split something in my gut that never has healed. How you gonna get that using gmail? It just doesn't compare lol.
Gmail of course, it is super fast and safe. I used live (hotmail) before, but some emails never arrived.
Gmail and Hotmail.
Gmail because I like the new clean look plus the email, contacts and calendar integrate into my Android very well. I like yahoo also but that's mainly because it has always been so easy to use.
I find 10 Minute Mail better suited for that, unless you had human interaction in mind.
What are any advantageous differences with lavabit or mail.com over gmail, gmx, etc?
Safe I almost sprayed coffee all over my laptop when i read that
Yeah, it's "safer" if you connect using HTTPS or SSL but it's hardly safe!
Tobacco, I hope you are done with your coffee as I also think Gmail is the best on the internet: getting better every year, great spam filter, calendar, docs, antivirus, almost 8GB of mail allowed, heavy e-mails (10 MB+) sent without any problems, etc.
I tried GMX and Hotmail, sorry, but they are not in the same league as Gmail.
Based on what you and others say about it, I might have to try Gmail.
It would be great if I could simply import everything from Hotmail.
You can certainly try it, and you can configure Gmail to import automatically all new mail from Hotmail.
