    What email service do you use?

    Well, i'm using Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Spymac Mail.

    What do you use?
    I'm looking for some special emails...i mean @_______
    I don't mind the capacity i just want something special...

    Btw, any Koreans in this forum? Or anyone that knows how to read Korean here? I'm thinking of registering for this daum.net thing but i'm not sure if it's free/ have to pay/ etc...? Can someone help me find out and possibly help me register an account if it's a free service?

    I run my own email server using Postfix and Courier-IMAP tied in to MySQL for virtual users. But as for a service, I used BlueBottle for a while and it's cool since they give you free IMAP access. But then again the domain is bluebottle.com which isn't too spiffy.

    Gmail and only Gmail. I used to use Yahoo, but I quit using that address when I got my Gmail account.

    I've just got a uni account, an ISP account and an old Hotmail account which is surprisingly still open. I always thought they only gave you thirty days of inactivity before shutting down the standard Hotmail accounts.

    Gmail, Hotmail, and my Uni account. I still use Hotmail because certain friends and contacts keep sending mail to that address. I use my hotmail address to sign up for message boards, or any place I'm likely to get spam. So yep, it's a spam account.

    University Email PDX
    my own domain Email
    Yahoo Email
    SpyMac Email
    Loopware Email

    All of those are forwarded to my Gmail account (I think gmail has better rules then Apple mail) and then picked up by apple mail.

    I have my own domain for my primary email address.
    I also use my ISP address as a 'secondary primary' address.
    Lastly, I have a Hotmail account when being forced to enter an email address when I don't want to (spam).

    That's only the newer accounts, the old accounts just stay open period and also allow you access via a mail program for free and other things. As for mail i use
    gmail
    .mac
    hotmail x 2
    yahoo
    work email

    my university account - not more than 5% of the time
    .Mac - about 10% of the time
    GMail - about 20% of the time
    Spymac - the other 65% (though only through redirects of my @kwajo.com email, I'm not telling people I visit spymac, it's embarrassing. :eek: now if macrumors had email, there'd be something to be proud of :D )

    I have a few addresses...

    1. A Gmail account ( @gmail.com )
    2. If you send mail to any of the following:

    @clayj.com
    @clayjohanson.com
    @johansoncollection.org

    The mail goes through my web host in Chicago, and is then relayed to my personal Exchange 2003 Server. I can access mail not only through my Exchange Server, but also via POP from my web host if my Exchange Server is unavailable for any reason (power outage, network down, etc.).

    I used to also have an address @mailblocks.com before they went out of business.
