I use Yahoo most frequently and like them most for their account set up style, organised website, very fast nevigation and security(!!!!) and spam guard options. I am using it for 3 of our mail account and had never any problem with it. I also use gmail but its kind of slow navigation whih irritate me so much. But their spam policy is may be beter than yahoo but the slow loading of the site really upset me and drag more towards Yahoo. Hotmail, for some reason I feel not so secured and strong policy holder... What do you like? Who is you favourite mail provider and you can't spend your day withot whom?

Yep, I all have those e-mail providers but Yahoo is the only e-mail I use daily. I find it user-friendly, accessible and have many so many good features to enjoy at. The other too are hard to access, slow indeed and are not that much promoted or known to user's. Also, I communicate to almost all of my friends through Yahoo Messaging!;)

For no reason at all I like yahoo. I think it's because it was the first email provider I had ever used and I am just really good at sticking with what I know more so than switching and learning something new all over again. So I reckon my pick for yahoo is out of pure laziness, I suppose, LOL

I use all the 3 and find yahoo to be very useful, fast and accessible. I quite like gmail - it's more like a chatting site. i use it for personal purposes with my family and friends. I seldom use hotmail, only for subscribed mails from important companies.

My favorite is still Yahoo because almost all of my contacts are using this Provider. I do have a hotmail but I do not frequent it. No one mails me there so I think my hotmail account is already deactivated. I thought of checking on it later because of your discussion. I wonder if it is still there.

I use yahoo before, but now I prefer to use gmail because it is faster to load than yahoo, plus when you attach jpeg files gmail is faster as compared to yahoo.

I used to use hotmail but it is not very stable so I switch to yahoo. I like yahoo for its capability of creating folders to organize your emails. Its group contacts is also a nice and easy to use feature. I do have gmail account and it is better than yahoo in terms of grouping your replied emails together. However, given the fact that gmail keeps changing their user interface and its slowness, I still prefer yahoo.

I always had my hotmail address, but then i discovered the yahoo mail, and i do have several mail boxes there. The reason for yahoo being my best choice, is that it has alote of space storage in it, it never closes, and it has a very good spam system, and all other things: like address book, and other things that are really easy to handle. So yes i will stick with it for now, i am very pleased.

Personal I enjoy Yahoo myself and I do also have a GMail account, they are so slow with navigating I do agree with that alot. I can't comment on hotmail do to the fact I tried them when I first started getting on line and that account was very short lived as to I went to Yahoo, and been there ever since (that's some years now and I mean some years LOL) But once again I'm Yahoo all the way

I use Gmail. Mostly because I know if I changed my e-mail now, a lot of my friends would either freak out of be confused. I also enjoy the chat feature it offers.
