I have found myself addicted to Yahoo mail even as Gmail offers some wonderful additional features that you can't resist. I'm sure one of my reason is the ease of usage, I get to be able to access my Yahoo easily while Gmail almost always loads it very very slow. Mind you, I stick to Yahoo Classic, I can see Yahoo has been try to get the 'New Yahoo Mail Beta' to measure up with what Gmail offers in the aspect of additional features and then have inherited the slowness of such bumper additions. So which do use most and why?

I have cable internet so I have Yahoo, gmail,aol,and inbox. Out of all of those options I would have to say I use my gmail and aol the most. I like gmail for the features it offer Like the chat I don't have to download a seperate messanger just to chat to someone which is nice. I like aol becuase I have had email with them for over 10 yrs. So there is where I stand. I will say I have no clue why it is taking gmail so long for you to load stuff I have it within seconds.

I have both Yahoo and Gmail emails. I use yahoo for my everyday emails and Gmail for my PTS site that I belong to. I like yahoo better though. I think I'm just more used to that one.

Well I have both , but I prefer Gmail , I use it more , for my PST accounts and my job. Yahoo tends to send you stuff in there that is dated for 2038 . Well at least that is what I have been getting in my inbox. I like the feature in gmail now that offers the chat , and I just think it is easier and faster then yahoo

Well, no doubt Gmail does a good job on spam but I know if your Gmail address gets the amount of spam the Yahoo does, it might not do too better really. I tried it with one of my Gmail account, that is, have as many spams sent to it by using the Gmail address to signup for some free stuff online.

I prefer yahoo mail rather than Gmail. I've been using yahoo mail since 6 years ago, and I don't think that I will change my main mailing address to other emails. I'm not sure about the features offered in Gmail, but as now, the yahoo mail that I've been using is more than enough for me to connect with others.

Sure, talking about connecting with others, YMS also beats Gtalk to popularity and usage even though Gtalk's got a wonderful free PC-to-PC call feature.

That's right. Most of my friends are using YMS also.

It seems you're exactly like me :) I stick to Yahoo Classic too, even though I also have two gmail addresses, one for blogging and one for "official stuff". 99% of my correspondence is still done via the Yahoo address though, no particular reason why, probably out of habit :)

Well,I prefer gmail to yahoo. Its just because I have been using it for long. I also do feel that everyone will support the one which they first joined. It will take a while for yahoo users to like gmail and vice versa. Cheers!

Well, really speaking, I can't leave Gmail at all. However better I try at swtiching from Gmail , I just tend to come back to it. I am just addicted to Gmail over Yahoo or for that matter, any other Service provider. Ofcourse there may be so many better SPs, but I have seemed to got along with this so well, that I tend to just forget about any other, and I would just log into my Gmail account. The best thing is I am able to handle all my other GMAIL improtant accounts from one of my GMAIL accounts, which I can't actually switch. And though, I have accounts on Yahoo, Gmail, and other ESPs, I hardly open the ones that are not GMAIL!

Personally i use Gmail and i never had login problem its always done fast and easy. I choose it because it has a big space for storage, its easy connected with my blog space and so many others things. Also i believe Gmail is much more safe than Yahoo!

I use yahoo, mostly becuase i use the messenger and talk to friends. Plus i think its easier to check weather and everything else you can thing of. Yahoo is the way to go. i never tried Gmail but it probably offers the most but many people stick with yahoo...

Although neither Gmail or Yahoo mail is my main email address. I still like Gmail more than Yahoo mail. As I have a problem to login it and I don't know why. The password is correct and I can use other features except for email service.

I have Gmail myself, I prefer it above all others, it is fast, has good spamfilters, and last but not least: all my friends use gmail. So Gtalk is a nice way to have some chat with my friends every now and then.
