Hey Scubapro, I think i was about 10 years old when i had my first email account and i believe it was with hotmail and yahoo. I can't remember which was first. Then after that when i was in Sec 1, i set up another hotmail account which i still use till now but it's more for stuffs which are not important but more for leisure. I had set up a gmail account quite some time ago but i was loyal to hotmail and just wanted to stick to hotmail. However, when i was in college, a hotmail account really looked children and informal. I could not have a hotmail account in my resume and therefore i had to switch to my gmail account. I however had forgotten my password and therefroe had to set up a new gmail account. but this time, i used my name because it would look more professional. As for now, i mainly use 2 email account. one hotmail and one gmail. the gmail one I use it mainly for more formal stuff like work and school while the other I use it more for leisreu purposes. Furthermore, i signed up to complete surveys which are mostly send to the hotmail accoutn.

I have used gmail about 4 years, I never seen a problem that make me inconvenient. I ever use yahoomail before use gmail, but I often see spam in my inbox and it is too much. So, I never use my yahoo account. After I use gmail I never use other site for my email account. Have a nice day.

I used have Hot Mail however a few days ago it changed to Outlook. I am yet to learn all about it. A few years ago I used an email account called Free UK. It was free to begin with then it began charging for it. Both E Bay and Pay Pal have that email address which I haven't been able to change. Therefore I have to keep the Free UK email address. The Free UK email is very very very slow to load.

In the good old days there was limited storage and so I opened my account with several of them - yahoo - 2, gmail 2, rediff 2. I have not deleted these accounts although these days we are permitted to do so. I like gmail of the lot but I am active in all of them.

I have an account with Yahoo, Outlook, my cable provider, and g-mail. I haven't had any problems with any of them. I think the one I like the best though is the one provided by my cable provider. Second would be Outlook, then g-mail, then yahoo. I haven't closed any of the accounts because I still use them all.

My first mail account was with Hotmail. I was always getting spammed and viruses through my email. Someone turned me on to GMAIL and I've been using it now for about 6 or 7 years. I like Gmail a lot. One of the things I LOVE about it is the telephone calls you can make from your Gmail account on line. Love that feature. Another provider I like is Hushmail.com. Hushmail is supposedly completely private unlike the other mail providers. So if you send sensitive info in emails this is one you might wanna try.

I used to have Yahoo mail until recently, I'm having trouble opening my mail and it's taking forever to upload. Until now, I stopped attempting to check my Yahoo mail since I can't access it anyway. I switched to Gmail and it's easier to access with no problems at all :)

You can try creating different accounts for all mail providers. then you decide which is the best amongst the rest.
