How many of you having Yahoo Id as ur email

Well junk mailers prefer people with yahoo addresses. I have a yahoo address and most of the mail I get is spam. Their filter is not as good as the others, and they only allow a limited addresses to block and limited number of words to watch out for. The fact that you did not put your yahoo email address in your post shows it.

Hotmail was my very first e-mail provider, and I still have that old address (believe it or not). Yahoo! was my second, and became my primary e-mail until a year or two ago. Their spam filter doesn't stop spam with long, cryptic headers, and having the largest user database in the world makes them the biggest target for data mining. Yahoo! Mail also has problems receiving messages from certain places. Discovering that was bad enough, but even more distressing for me was trying to work around their omission of POP3/SMTP support. I use a desktop e-mail client. The only way I could enjoy this convenience with Yahoo! was to install a third-party courier called YPOPs!. It worked for awhile, then pictures started getting stripped out of everything I forwarded. I hadn't changed anything in Thunderbird or YPOPs!, so I contacted Yahoo! support. They stuck it to me. Gmail is my primary provider now, and I enjoy full POP3/SMTP support. Gmail also seems to be more "universal," and I haven't been missing messages lately (as far as I know). I use a third-party Challenge-Response filter now, and spam only exists in my memory. I still have my Yahoo! address; I use it as a honeypot for spam! :P

I guess all of us who's having yahoo id also use yahoo mail because i have found Yahoo.mail to be the best e-mail client on the web because of its spam filtering and folder management believe me i love this feature on yahoo in which you can make hundreds of folders with different names and put your e-mail accordingly to access them anytime instead of another email clients which are not providing this facility ......... Therefore i have choosen yahoo to be as my primary email ........
