What is the best free email service available out there? Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail or any other? I've had a hotmail account for ages which has never given me problems but I don't like that it doesn't have IMAP which makes it a pain to synchronize. I've heard bad things about gmail in terms of privacy and security (how they scan your emails and can keep your personal info). I don't want to give out a phone number or address in an email only for that to be scanned or manipulated etc...I haven't heard too much about Yahoo or any others that could be out there. What do you guys use and what would you recommend? Ideally I would like to it be free with IMAP if possible. Thanks.
