I could remember my first email address was from hotmail. I don't know why, but I guess it was the 'hit' during that time and everyone got hotmail. How about you? What was the carrier of your first email address? Why did you decide to use that carrier?

I think mine was "genie" Not sure if genie sim cards are still available. You ahd to phone up to order them. They were free and you got loads of free texts and wap time. I only used it on my phone however because I did not have a computer then.

Hi, Laydee! My first computer came with AOL, and I still use it most of the time, now that it's free. I have accounts on other servers, but I don't use them as much, just out of habit!

mine was yahoo and i used my whole name in it which is very obvious and so after i graduated from college i just realize how awkward it was and so i decided to change it to hide my real identity and just used my first name even as signature in my email i also keep my last name hidden

My first email address was from yahoo mail which is 7 years old and that time yahoo mail is the famous one in our country. Though I am using gmail regularly, still I have that yahoo mail address. I am not using it frequently. I love that mail address very much.

I'm pretty sure my first email was with hotmail also. It was the 'thing' here also. I wasn't as active on the internet at the time so it became inactive pretty quick and I lost it and my next one was with Yahoo.

I still have the email account I first created with hotmail about 14 years ago. Granted that I have created and maintained 11 other email accounts, the first one is still pretty useful. Yes, hotmail was popular back then. Nowadays, I still receive old subscriptions, and college group emails from that count. Basically everything that I signed up for when the internet was relatively new for me still goes to that first email account of mine.
