    Please suggest some alternatives to Yahoo Mail.

    I routinely send out several EMails (NON SPAM EMails) which each have around 10 BCC's to friends & family using Yahoo Mail, and sometimes Yahoo Mail claims that they have detected something about a Security Risk (or something like that) with my Yahoo Mail Account. Even when I successfully type in the CAPTCHA, Yahoo Mail will sometimes not allow me to send the EMail. Until today, this problem had not happened for several weeks.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Funny how Yahoo seems to be the most hacked web mail service but causes user issues like you're having! All for the sake of "safety"!

    Anyway, I run Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo. I rank Gmail 1st, Outlook.com 2nd and Yahoo an extremely distant 3rd...

    Same here. Even before the change, Hotmail has always felt easier on my eyes. The updated interface adds width and the usage of white spaces makes it look much cleaner.

    Yeah, even before the change they were really good but with the change now its just the best.
    Since the first day i used GMail i always ask myself WHY so much people like GMail. In my opinion its of the worst web mail interfaces i have used. o_O

    I vote for setting up a POP3 email service with an ISP.

    Everything is local on your computer, no advertisements, no external interference, no CAPTCHAs, no email scanning (mine, anyway) etc. Configure folders folders as you want.

    IF you have to go with webmail, I agree with some of the others -- I really like outlook.com. The alias service alone is so incredibly well done and seamless. Great interface and it has been very reliable. MS got this right - no question.

    Gmail, Outlook.com. Gmail is always my favorite, but I can see Outlook being equally appealing.

    I would also suggest Outlook.com or setting up an email address on a domain you own (if you have one), using a hosting provider or even hosting it yourself.

    Actually, I already have GMail & Outlook (Hotmail).

    I just successfully sent out my daily EMail with GMail. It looks like GMail will work OK for me.

    Oddly, I have recently started to use my Yahoo! Mail I get with my ISP, I used the free version for over a decade & it was the best at one time IMO. The Yahoo! Mail I'm using now (paid version) has replaced Gmail for me as my main mail.

    I do think that Zoho, GMX & AOL are good free alternatives though. AOL has recently improved & is nice & simple to use, I actually prefer it to Gmail now. Zoho is good. GMX isn't bad, although once (I have only used it for a year) my contacts disappeared. I had to replace them manually, luckily there weren't many. I have been told that GMX is susceptible to this phenomenon. Out of the three, I reckon AOL would be the one to try first.

    Outlook.com seems very good to me. The only positive thing about gmail for me is the calendar which is a must-have for me on my phone and computer. I'm not sure I want to switch everything over to outlook's calendar. So I just use outlook.com for a 2nd or 3rd email address.

    I have been using GMail for the EMails to Friends & Family for a couple of days now and GMail seems to be working out for me without any issues.

    I fully agree, but instead of POP3 email service with a local ISP, I have mine POP3 emails with both Gmail and Hotmail (Outllook, live, MSN).

    And, they are internally configured in my PC with Microsoft Outlook.

    Best regards,
